Mumbai: To overcome the emotionally-damaging experience of losing a parent is difficult and not everyone manages to leave their traumatized past behind and get on with life.
Now Prateik Babbar, son of yesteryear actor-turned-politician Raj Babbar and late actress Smita Patil, may have handled his tragedy well and emerged victorious but that does not stop the actor from missing his mother from time to time.
30 years have passed by but the memory of his iconic mother still gives Prateik major heartache. After all, fate had deprived him of motherly love and he had no choice but to accept the unacceptable.
The ‘Dhobi Ghat’ actor took to social media to let his deceased mother know why he hates her just as much as he loves pondering upon her memories.
“My mother died Today! 30 years ago on the 13th of December.. Smita's spirit still lives on.. And lives on with pride and honour and dignity! 30'years later Smita still manages to make an entire country miss her.. be proud of who she was and what she achieved.. and the wonderful things she did for people.. She truly was special.. An Angel.. God sent.. Truly.. She was gods child.. But then the gods got greedy and wanted to keep her for themselves.. Yess They got the better of her.. She always made us so proud and will continue to make us proud and continue to inspire so many.. R.I.P. Smita Patil 1955-1986.. I love her.. as much as I hate her for never being there.. I'm grateful that I'm her son.. A son of a great woman! A true icon! A legend!.. I will make her proud! And I will not rest till I do!” wrote Prateik on his Facebook account.
We couldn’t help choking. Stay strong!...
