Mother’s Day 2018: Film and TV celebs reveal why their mom is a hero


Superhero movies have always managed to rake in the moolah at the box office (Avengers: Infinity War being a recent example of this phenomenon). And why not, who wouldn’t like a saviour in, maybe not shining armour anymore, but a shiny red suit blazing missiles and whatnot! But these are on-screen superheroes, what about the real ones? Every person has a guardian angel or a protector in the form of a mother, who come is always there for the child – no matter how old he/she grows up to be! On Mother’s Day, film and television celebrities share with MANASI Y MASTAKAR why their mother is a superhero for them and her role in their lives…  

Raima Sen 

My mother is my hero because she has taught me everything…She is my biggest critic and admirer…She has seen life and her judgement has never been wrong. She is a strong-willed, independent woman of the world and at the same time soft and a real mom in the truest sense. I aspire to be like her someday; she has never let us down.

Nikitin DheerAll mothers are superheroes. It is most definitely not possible for me to even imagine my life without her, for the simple reason I think my entire house would come to a standstill if she is not around: From the day-to-day functioning to seeing us kids happy to making important decisions, cooking, cleaning – goodness, its not an easy task! She is working round the clock and it never really stops for her. Yet, we do not consider it work, we tend to take her for granted most times, and yet she never complains. She’s my hero for sure!

My mother is my everything! I’m stuck to her like a glue! It’s intangible and indescribable to be precise. She is my hero, because she has bestowed upon me invaluable lessons in life. She has taught me to travel the path that has not been taken, and when something has been tried and tested and there is an almost guarantee that it will work out…don’t do it. Have the guts to do something else, she says, and be brave enough to be yourself and not a copy of someone else. My mother and I are so connected that we don’t have to be in the same space to spend time together. I hang out with her when she’s dancing or doing yoga, we watch sitcoms together sometimes and when we are home at the same time, we eat together.

I’m not going to say anything dramatic or emotional like a first grader would write in their ‘My mother’s my hero’ essay. All I want to say is that any person’s mother is their angel and that’s how it should be! She understands you, she listens to you and she’s always there for you, no matter what, when nothing or no one is there. I think we need to value that and feel blessed every single day. And once in a year, if you want to go out off your way and make them feel special, go ahead and do that. But I think we should do something special for our mothers more often. Make them feel special every day. Not just on Mother’s Day.

Shama Sikander

My mother is my hero because she has taught me to be patient in life. I’ve seen her go through so many hardships. She has so much patience and calmness. She never cribs in spite of going through a troublesome life. That really taught me a lot. It showed me that with enough patience, you can get through anything. She also taught me to be kind. She always believes in giving and helping people. She, without literally teaching me, taught me a lot just by being the way she is. And I believe kids learn a lot through what they see in their parents. She has always supported me and loved me with all her heart. Never even once complained about us giving her too much trouble.

Vatsal Sheth

My mother has sacrificed so much for me and my brother. She used to wake up at 7 in the morning to get us ready for school. What is really amazing is that she learned driving just to pick us up and drop us to the school. She took care of everyone and everything. And now when I look back, I see that she has sacrificed everything for us. She has been absolutely selfless. I feel blessed to have her in my life. Her love for us is absolutely unconditional. She’s a superwoman!

Ishita Dutta

My mother is selfless, strong, forgiving, loving and so much more. She definitely is a lot of fun to hang out with, loves watching movies and if you need Bollywood gossip call my mother. I still don’t know how she knows everything; no wonder my friends love chilling with her. She has taught me to be strong, independent and forgiving. Growing up I always knew she will support me no matter what.

Vineet Raina

My mother, Sarla Raina, has taught me to stay rooted and grounded. She says, no matter what the situation or circumstances, no matter how successful you are, always stay humble and never forget how you started. And this is exactly how I am.

Jasmin Bhasin

I have learnt everything from her, she is my first school, first inspiration, and has always motivated me. Whatever I am today, is because of her, and that’s why she is my hero.

Sourabh Raaj Jain

My mother has lived and is still living life on her own terms. She is a powerhouse of energy, who even at this age wants to do everything by herself; she is my strength my everything.

Ridhima Pandit

From bringing us up to imbibing such qualities in us only a superhero can do. She has watched over us even when there were times we thought we did not need her. It’s not easy to be so selfless and continue to look after your household and not expect anything in return it takes a superhero guts to do so much and expect nothing in return.

Neha Marda

Life comes to a complete standstill when I’ve fought with her or argued with her no decision taken seems right or I lose confidence she has never really made me consciously realise her worth in my life, but as I grew I realise the love and selflessness with which she has brought me and my siblings up. She has been rock solid when we were falling apart even though internally she may have been scared herself. She is my best friend and I am truly happy to have her in my life.

Puru Chibber

I love my mother; she’s my life and whatever I am today is all because of her. I always have followed her advice: She says keep a positive and you will achieve what you want and respect elders.
