Small screen actors thank mom for compassion, sacrifices
On the special occasion of Mother's Day on Sunday, TV actors bow down to their mothers who provided strenghth and unconditional support to them, to overcome all fears and worries. From Siddharth Shukla to Avika Gor, everybody feels that no one can understand a child better than the mother.
Here's what some of them have to say about Mother:
Toral Rasputra: All that I am, or hope to be, I owe it to my mother. My on-screen character of Anandi in 'Balika Vadhu' has made me experience the beautiful feeling of motherhood and I have to admit, it's not easy at all. I now have much more respect for my mother, as bringing up a child in a certain manner really requires a lot of compassion, self-sacrifice and generosity and only a mother figure can do this beautifully.
Siddharth Shukla: My mother's teachings are my most priceless possessions and I can't imagine my life without her. Whatever good has ever happened to me I feel is only because of my mother's blessings. She is one of the strongest women I have come across and I have so much to look up to and learn from her.
Avika Gor: As they say, God could not be everywhere which is why He made mothers. My mother is my greatest strength. She has dealt with me with so much of patience and helped me face every situation in the best possible way. It is only because of her unconditional support that I have achieved success in my life.
Preetika Rao: My mother has played a pivotal role in my life as she is the one behind all the values and ethics that empower me. She has brought me and my sister up in a way that we can face our successes as well as our failures with our heads held high. This Mother's Day, I am planning to surprise my mother with a nice gift and also planning to cook her favourite cuisine to pamper her and make her feel like a queen.
Sanaya Irani: The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world - this saying is the best way for me to describe my mom. On every Mother's Day, I bake a special cake for mom and get her flowers because my mom loves flowers. Unfortunately, this year she will be travelling, which is why I'll not be able to celebrate the day with her. But I will ensure that I spend some quality time with her once she is back and will be planning some surprises for her.
