Bollywood has always given a new meaning to motherhood through the movies and characters. On one hand, there is Mother India and on the other side we have Mother '98; the range is wide.

She has played the role of a loving, sacrificing and an ideal mother for as long as we can remember. She had managed to pull off the most dramatic roles like it were a piece of cake.
