Hindi cinema, for years, has used the mother-son relationship in its stories. The matriarch has held equal importance (if not more) like the patriarch in the Bollywood family. And the mother has been presented in all forms, from being naïve and unwed, to the sole bread earner of the family, to evil mother-in-law- we have seen all kinds.
While there has been a transition of the mother's image in cinema over the years, some done and dusted lines about the mother are till date used by film addicts.
So, on mother's day, we bring you the 10 most popular dialogues from Bollywood about Maa:
"Maa ke khane mein jo swaad hai, woh aur kahi nahi"
"Maa mujhe naukri mil gayi, maa"
"Maa mujhe aashirwad de"
"Yeh meri Maa ke kangan hai, kaha tha bahu ko dene ko"
"Uski koi kamzori toh hogi, koi Maa ya behan?"
"Bacche ko to hum ne bacha liya par Maa ko nahi bacha paaye"
"Maa main first class first pass ho gaya hoon"
"Agar Maa ka doodh piya hai toh saamne aa!"
"Main tumhare bachche ki Maa banne wali hoon"
And one classic dialogue that gave Bollywood Mother's a milestone!
"Mere paas Maa hai.."
Wishing all the beautiful souls, called Mothers, Happy Mother's Day! Keep being Bollywood's guiding angles!
