Mere paas maa hai – One may wonder how this very simple dialogue from the film Deewar can become immensely popular and powerful. Had there been no maa in this line, it would not have been that impactful. That’s what mothers can do. They are very special for us and even for our Bollywood superstars. We bring to you some of our superstars and their supermoms, who have sacrificed a lot to raise up these stars.
Salma and Salman Khan:
You can partly blame Salman Khan’s mother Salma for his bachelorhood as he was always looking for his mother in all his ex-girlfriends. As his father Salim Khan revealed in a TV Channel, “You need two people for a marriage. There’s a contradiction in Salman’s character. He gets attracted to women from his industry only…his co-stars become his love interests. Once a relationship is established, he starts looking for his mom in them. Now that is not possible. A woman who has just started her career can’t be doing stuff like preparing meals, washing clothes, preparing kids and yet lead the hectic life of a movie star!” Sallu is maa ka ladla but if he does anything wrong, she still gives him a tight slap. Being a Capricorn, Salman is a bit reserved in his portrayal of love for his mother but he is a total mama’s boy and always makes sure that his mother gets all the happiness in the world. For him, his mother would always come first and will do anything for her. He shares a very deep bond with his mother and is very close to her.
Babita and Kareena Kapoor:
Kareena Kapoor “can’t live, breathe or take one step without her mother.” Well, it’s not us who are saying it but it’s beti Bebo who said it a few years back, when she was moving into her new home. She loves her mother Babita so much that she won’t be doing any bikini shots again since her mom didn’t like her in a bikini. She has her mother to thank for what she is today. Her father, Randhir Kapoor disapproved of women joining the film industry but her mom made it all possible for her and Karisma. Babita is an Aries while Kareena is a Virgo. They are quite opposite. As an Aries mother, Babita is dominant, aggressive, and usually quite impatient while Kareena as a Virgo is obsessed with detail and is quiet and shy at times. However, besides having contrasting personalities, both understand and appreciate their radically different views and perspectives.
Sharmila and Saif Ali Khan:
In his tough times (career, divorce, legal issues), Sharmila Tagore has been a support system for his son Saif Ali Khan. Saif is a Leo while Sharmila is a Sagittarius. They are both vibrant and have a zest for life. This family is lively and exciting, with each person encouraging the other to go for higher goals. As a mother, she endows him with a deeper and more contemplative nature. He in turn keeps her youthful and playful. Both share a mutual admiration and respect for each other. Both are charismatic and charming.
Neetu and Ranbir Kapoor:
Ranbir Kapoor was once a possessive son of his mother Neetu Singh. He got uncomfortable watching his mom romancing other actors and he, certainly, does not like people judging her. As a dutiful mother, she gave up her acting career to raise her two kids. She’s always been a protective mother, sometimes shielding Ranbir from his dad Rishi Kapoor’s temper. Ranbir is a Libran and Neetu, a Cancerian. They provide what the other is lacking. Both look for security and warmth in their relationships. Arguments rarely flare up as both love peace and harmony. As a mother, she always tries to make a good home for the family. Ranbir is her best friend and her only confidant.
Jaya and Abhishek Bachchan:
Mama Jaya Bachchan, who takes care of everybody, is a sweetheart for her son Abhishek. And so to please her, he wore a ring despite having no interest and belief in astrology. Abhishek is an Aquarius while his mother Jaya is an Aries. Their relationship is dynamic, and though it can be competitive at times, it is never boring. They are great friends apart from sharing a mother – son relationship. They are compatible and communicate very well. Both mother and son are idealists and have an unbounded enthusiasm and curiosity about life and their profession.
Tanuja and Kajol:
Knowing that her mother Tanuja is a perfectionist, Kajol is too scared to work with her again. Now, that may come as a surprise since we all know very well of Kajol’s acting skills. Well, here is a daughter who has tremendous respect and all praise for her mother’s work. Kajol is a Leo while Tanuja is a Libra. Like most signs that are two positions apart in the Zodiac, Leo and Libra share the intuitive understanding of the inner working of each other’s mind. Both have radically different temperaments; where Leo is flamboyant, Libra is refined. Leo and Libra form a very successful family relationship because each of them can appreciate and benefit from the other’s positive qualities.
