Bollywood dialogues, songs and characters have always been engraved in our mind since childhood. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that we have grown up watching Bollywood movies and at some level we tried to mimic our favourite characters.
On a special occasion like Mothers' Day- we dedicate this day to Bollywood’s obnoxious and over-dramatic mothers, who we are pretty sure were high on something powerful!
1. Jaya Bachchan in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham :
If the weather is stormy and turbulence has set restlessness in your home, then just drop whatever important work you are doing and go running down the stairs to open the front door of your house! Try doing this and your mom will make you rake off the ‘kachara’ that just drifted inside while opening the door.
2. Rakhi Gulzar in Karan Arjun:
This movie taught us the real meaning of the word ‘OPTIMISM’. Never ever in the history of Bollywood have we come across such a lady (mother) who always saw the glass half-full. ‘Mere Karan Arjun aayenge’, definitely aayenge.
3. Himani Shivpuri in Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon:
Toh fir problem kya hai? The most repetitive and irritating question hammered on our brains throughout the movie by Kareena’s mom. No one knows if her problems ever got solved, but this problem of her surely made us change channels on this movie.
4. Sushma Seth in Kal Ho Naa Ho:
Trying to learn Punjabi? Then why to take tutorials when you have a Punjabi Dadi at your home? So far, she is the most versatile mother who played the role of interfering grandmom, annoying Mother-in-law and a lover who kept exchanging glances with the Dadaji-next-door.
5. Reema Laagoo in Hum Saath Saath Hain:
The otherwise soft-spoken and loving character of Reema Lagoo essayed a mother’s role with a twist in this movie. Finally the pity actor got to play a different role, from kind mother to a vicious mother. What a CHANGE!
6. Kirron Kher in Dostana:
Now that you’ve done your graduation from Sushma Aunty in Kal Ho Naa Ho, Karan Johar is all set to offer you a Masters in Punjabi. Turn on this movie and you will see Kirron Kher continually blabbering in Punjabi and her brilliant skills of handling the ‘new age relationship’ problems in her own way.
7. Farida Jalal in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai:
So far the award for the cutest Mother and Granny of Bollywood goes to Farida Jalal in KKHH. Though at some point in the movie she over-reacted but she still remains the frontrunner on today's Mothers' Day countdown.
