Mother's are a gift to humankind. And while we have troubled them just as much as we have loved them, ever since we were kids, as grown ups we have nothing more than love to give to our moms. So this time on Mother's Day, we asked our favourite TV actors to tell us about their most favourite human beings on the planet --- their mothers!
Jayashree Venketaramanan: My mother's name is Charumathi Venketaramanan. She's also called Charu. Well, I'm not going to be in Delhi for this Mother's Day. My mother has an obsession of collecting different kinds of hair clips. And she has plenty of them. So I am definitely going to gift her a box full of that because she always asks for that. Apart from that, each year we, as in me and my sister, gift her whatever she wants. My mother has always been a person with a lot of resilience; something I have tried to learn and have failed miserably. But over the years I have definitely learned to recover quickly from difficulties and to be able to bounce back. My mom has taught me that this is something you need to be able to do to survive in this world. It's something my mother excels in. With each breath, I can only keep chanting how much I love her!
Ridheema Tiwari: My mother's name is Madhuri Tiwari. I don't know If I have an off but if at all I have I may visit her this Mother's Day. She's also busy with her best friends sons wedding. But she wanted a watch which I bought for her. If I get an off from shooting, I would go meet her and surprise her with flowers and another watch! Also, as she's very excited for the wedding, gifting her would add to the excitement. A message I would like to give my mother is, I love her so much, and I am so happy that I have her in my life as a pillar. I am a better version of her and how she's brought me up. She has always been a friend to me. She has never stopped me from doing anything in life and she always been a go getter in her own life. I pray to God that she remains healthy and fine. She wants to travel the world and I want her to see the world, and this year I am going to take her. I wish I could give her the love she has have given me, and I regret I could not spend much time with her since she's a workaholic and I stay away. So I also want to tell her to now take it easy and have some 'me time' in life. My mother has taught me time management and also the fact that women should be independent and have a purpose in life. They should always be ambitious yet not let the house suffer. She has also taught me discipline in everything I do, whether it's eating on time or taking proper food or doing some yoga for flexibility of my body to my mind. She has taught me to welcome change and move with the changing trends thereby embracing them yet not leaving my roots. I still walk the same road my mom took me onto. It has made me stand out than the rest.
Sara Arfeen Khan: For me, I feel every day is Mother's Day and celebrating it one day would be nut proper. So, I celebrate Mother's Day every day. The special gift I would give my mom is to never let her down and make her happy always, no matter what happens. I would not show her that something is wrong as she already has looked after me so much. Because, to see her child happy is what every mother dreams. This Mother's Day, I wish that she stays charged and positive. About gifts, I don't think they expect anything materialistic from us. The values she gave me, I use them in my life which is my gift to her. be returning back to her as a gift. To meditate, pray and ask God for guidance and help people is what she taught me.
Karan Wahi: My mother's name is Veena Wahi. Well, I'll be shooting in Mumbai on the 14th. I guess like every Mother's Day, I always say this, that there is not one day that I need to thank her or tell her how much I love her. She has been an inspiration for me and. Since I am the only child to my parents, I have always received the utmost care and love from her end.
Rajshri Rani: My mother's name is Siya Shukla. This Mother's Day, I would like to gift a house to her. It's a different thing that she's not with me and I won't be able to share that happiness with her, but I would like to buy a house. I always learned that she was a very clear hearted, simple person and I would always want to be like her. She helped people no matter if they were her enemies. I would like to be like her so that everyone will love me. One message to her would be, that I didn't say it often, and I guess no one says also, is that I love you very much. Until she was alive, I was living for her and now that she's not here, I am still.living for her.
Manish Wadhwa: My mother's name is Satya Wadhwa. Usually, my day starts with my mother's blessing, but 14th May has always been be a special day when we cut cakes and have fun. Also, what belongs to me is all hers, so I am no one to gift her anything. She taught me to speak the truth and until our work is not done, not to share it with anyone. It's like, when the sun rises, your work will be seen, so let it be seen and don't talk about it before. I don't have a message for my mother, but a request --- Stay with us always and keep showering your blessings on us.
Karan Singh Chhabra - My mother’s name is Dr. Sarbjit Kaur. Every day is Mother's Day for me, but I will surely wish her and send her flowers in the morning and pray for her good health. I am planning to fly her down to Mumbai and invite her on my set. The one thing she taught me always, is to follow and practice is to be self-dependent. My message for my mother is that she is the most special person to me in this world. Whatever I am is because of her. I may not be able to express in words what she means to me, but all I can say is that she has taught me the meaning of unconditional love.
