Mothers Day Special 5 Kinds of Moms Bollywood Cannot Do Without


Mother’s day is here and while you are busy showering your mom with some major love (off social media too we hope), we need five minutes of your time to also talk about the other maa in your life – CineMA (sorry we couldn’t resist this). Yes, Bollywood and its mothers. Much like our own mothers, these Bollywood ki mummjis have been changing over the years. On Mother’s Day, here’s an ode to all the Bollywood moms who in some strange way gave inspiration to our own mothers too, and without whom we cannot imagine a classic 3-hour long, Hindi drama.  

PS: Of course there are countless actresses who’ve played the role of a mother to perfection and we are in no way taking away from any of them (so no hateful comments, thik hai).  

The OG Maa, Nirupa Roy

You cannot make a list of iconic Bollywood mothers without including Nirupa. The 80s brought with it a change in the way mothers were portrayed in Bollywood and with Nirupa came a clan of women who loved their kids and were ready to make all sorts of sacrifices for them. They suffered, they cried and they toiled, but more than anything else, they were pillars of support to their kids. Pick any successful Amitabh Bachchan movie from the 80s and it will have the OG maa of Bollywood, Nirupa, shedding tears and making gajar ka halwa for her son.

The Sanskari Maa, Reema Lagoo

The 90s gave way to a new kind of maa, one you could joke around with, but with sanskari boundaries. These were the moms who hung around when your friends came over, but you had to make sure no one mentioned the B work aka boyfriend. Reema Lagoo was the perfect example of this almost cool mom and she portrayed it perfectly, struggling between trying to be her kid’s best friend and also making sure they do the right thing, as per the sanskari books.

The Cool Maa, Kirron Kher

Who can forget Kirron Kher and her quest to get her beti Rhea (played by Rani Mukerji) married in Hum Tum. She totally supported her daughter and her dreams but she also wanted her to have a life partner. Kirron was the mother who joked with you, asked you about your recent crush and also supported you while you took on the world. Her only requirement – get married (ugh thanks Bollywood).

The Sad Maa, Jaya Bachchan

While we had the cool mom who tried to be our new best friend, we also had the 2000’s version of the sad maa from the 80s, aka Jaya Bachchan. This was the mom who was forever torn between what she wanted for her child and what her husband wanted. She never opposed her husband, until it was absolutely necessary and even then, she did it only for the good of the family. Jayaji standing with a pooja ki thali waiting for her Rahul to come home is perhaps what will forever be remembered as the perfect example of this particular mom in Bollywood.

The With It Maa, Ratna Pathak

Ratna brought in a new kind of mom; one who supported her kids but also understood their need for space. These moms had their own lives, and they no longer survived only to make gajar ka halwa or push the plot along. Ratna as Imran Khan’s mother in Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na… or as Fawad Khan’s disciplinarian mother in Khoobsurat gave us the ‘With It’ Moms who supported their kids but also carved out their own space.
