With Mother's Day being celebrated Sunday, some of Bollywood's well-known celebrities remember the memorable moments they spent with their mothers and feel they are not meant to be loved for just one day.
Here is what they have to say:
Arjun Rampal: I want to travel with my mother around the world to all the destinations she would love. I want to tell her that if I were to be born again then I want to be born only as her child.She is the most beautiful and best mom in the world.
Pooja Bhatt: I think it's time to discard the Mother's Day cliches and promise to mother her in the twilight of her life. All parents and children have to reverse roles eventually. That is the natural order of life!
Aditi Rao Hydari: My mother brought me up single handedly with strength and grace. I love her beyond measure and never cease to value the life she gave me, full of freedom, beauty, love and dignity.
Parineeti Chopra: My love for my mother is boundless. I want to take her for a trip to Switzerland as soon as I find the time.
Divya Dutta: I want to thank my mother for giving me the freedom to be an actress when everyone wanted me to be a doctor like her. And I want to thank her for letting me take her for granted and for not judging me and loving me unconditionally. And most of all I love my mother for giving me the most comfortable place to forget my stress, her lap.
Adnan Sami: There's no worldly gift worthy of a mother who has gifted me with life. There are no adequate words to thank my mother , nothing with which I say can express my gratitude for carrying me for 9 months before I was ready to face the world. Even now I crave to rush back to that safe haven.
Shabana Azmi: I just want to say three simple words to my mother: I love you. I am because she is.
Urmila Matondkar: I can't thank my mother enough for making me the person I am.I am still learning from her every day. I want to gift her a medicine that would keep her illness-free forever. I want to see her healthy and beautiful forevever.
Dino Morea: For Mother's Day I'd want to again thank my mom for this beautiful life she has given me, and for my super upbringing. Thanks for being there for us brothers, no matter what. I'd like to gift her the world.
Minissha Lamba: It's my mom who has made me what I am today. I want to thank her for all the love and attention that she poured into me to make me a good humanbeing.
Kalki Koechlin: My mother, the strong stubborn conscientious influence of my life.I'll get her something from Delhi where I'm shooting.
Mahaakshay Chakraborty: I'd like to tell my mom(former actress Yogeeta Bali) that she's truly the greatest mother in the world.I've seen many mothers. But none like her..She gave up her career to devote her life completely to her family and children. I'd love to take mom to the Wimbledon finals specially if Nadal is playing.
Dia Mirza: I am very proud of my mom.I AM because she IS.I am going to give her a Mother's Day filled with surprises.
Chitrangda Singh: The best gift for my mother I can think of is to take a holiday with her.And I should promise to call her three times a day every day. There is nothing she and I would like better.She is the most important person in my life.
Darsheel Safary: I would like to wish her 'Happy Mothers Day' and thank her for supporting me in my school, acting work and whatever I do. I will give a card and chocolates.
