As Mother’s Day is here, telly actors recollect their special memories of their moms
I remember the time when I was back home in Dubai and was struggling to explain to my father that I wanted to come to Mumbai and want to become an actor, but he didn’t listen as he always wanted me to be part of the family business. So, at that time it was my mother who would every now and then chup chup ke allow me to perform in shows and do whatever I like and I gave her all the money I earned in shows, she saved for me, gave me back when I came to Mumbai. So, every moment in my life is filled with my mother's love because of which I am what I am today. So I feel that not only mine but every mother is a form of God in herself. I would like to thank God for being around me in the form of my mother.
Before entering ‘Bigg Boss’ house, my mom used to prepare me mentally to be strong and courageous. She used to teach me household work, specially cooking. We used to spend time in kitchen together and the time spent together cooking is the best memory I share with my mom.
As a kid mom would take me out for fun, I still remember I had gone out with her and I demanded an ice cream. She said no for it and I was too adamant to listen to her. I forced her to buy for me one and I ate the whole ice cream. But later when we came back home, I felt guilty for not listening to her and I went and told her sorry. She still remembered this incident and tells me you were too young to realise and apologise. I, too, cherish this memory.
My mother is a dance teacher, so back then when I was a kid my mother used to send me to dance classes and make me participate in a lot of dance competitions. I was preparing for one of the competitions and my mom used to watch me practicing. For some reason I wasn't doing the steps properly so, she got angry, she slapped and yelled at me for doing it all wrong. I don’t know what’s so special about this incident but in its own way this is my heart.
