We have mothers, and then we have Bollywood mothers, who will forever be etched in our minds with their spectacular performance and maternal instincts. Here are seven onscreen moms we absolutely adore!
Sridevi in Mom
Here’s a mother who goes beyond the lengths to protect her daughter. Sridevi in Mom depicts the anger and love a mother has when her daughter has been wronged.
Kirron Kher in Dostana, Rang De Basanti, Om Shaanti Om, Devdas and others
From the contemporary modern-day mother to our iconic filmy moms, Kirron Ker has played them all.
Farida Jalal in DDLJ
Even after two decades of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Farida Jalal remains the sweetest mom ever.
Tisca Chopra in Taare Zameen Par
Tisca’s realistic portrayal in the film reaffirmed our belief in saying “tujhe sab hai pata, haina maa”.
Ratna Pathak Shah in Jaane Tu…. Ya Jaane Naa and Khoobsurat
Ratna Pathak Shah was simply fantastic as the contemporary, protective and entertaining mother in Jaane Tu…. Ya Jaane Na.
Rekha in Koi… Mil Gaya
She loves her kid with no complaints or demands. Just unconditionally! That is how mothers love. And blessed are those with such mothers!
Jaya Bachchan in Kabhie Khushi Kabhi Gham
Jaya’s portrayal of a mother longing for her estranged son is one of Bollywood’s most memorable scenes.
