What are the two factors that make up Bollywood?- Maa and Cine-ma. So Shashi Kapoor was indeed on strong ground when he said in DEWAAR -Mere paas maa hai (I have my mother with me) if there were no filmy mothers around. But we won't be discussing filmy moms... Rather we can hear about the moms who are behind many a Bollywood sensation.
Let's hear the daastan-e-maa (story of mother) from some of the biggest names of Bollywood.
Ranbir Kapoor on Neetu Kapoor:
Mother's Day to me is an opportunity to keep on telling my mom how special she is to me. My mother gave me the freedom to take decisions when I was in Class V. She is so special! Not only for me and my sister but for the entire family. She never interfered in my space. All she would say is that - Do whatever you want to. But just remember your origin, the royal blood in your veins. And that's more than enough for me to think and rethink before taking a decision. Of course I will get her the cutest gift on Mother's Day. She is too figure conscious. So can't give her chocolates. I think she will be happy if I gift her a new gym.
