They may not admit it but many actors in the television industry are pretty much Mama’s boys. With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we asked a few to pick up iconic Bollywood mother characters that remind them of their real life mother.
Gaurav Khanna: My mom is extremely loving and caring towards everybody in the family. She knows every little detail about me and makes sure I eat only what I like.The way Aruna Irani in Raja Babu would get the food out of Govinda’s mouth because he did not like it, my mom is pretty much like her. Also, the way Jaya Bachchan in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, would wait at the door for her son, my mom would be eagerly waiting for me to return home. She also teases me like Reema Lagoo does in Maine Pyar Kiya.
Gunjan Utreja: Kirron Kher from Om Shanti Om, because she also resembles my mom, who was the only one who believed in me. Like her, my mother strongly believed that I could be successful. And look where her faith has got me. Watching Kirronji in the movie made me so emotional.
Vikkas Manaktala: My mom is exactly like Jayaji from Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham. She is the epitome of mother’s love. One look at her and you fall in love with her personality, especially if you are a mama’s boy, which I am.
Laksh: I relate to Lajjwanti’s character played by Farida Jalal in Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge. She is the coolest mother Bollywood will ever see. The way she tells Raj and Simran to run away as her stubborn husband will never approve their love was very progressive. Likewise, I have my mother who has always been a support to me and knows what’s right....
