We often see legions of pieces written on the
generations of Bollywood families but
rarely is there mention of the relation that exists between a star and
their in-law. An in-law is that person with who we share no blood
relation with, but share a bond of love, care,
respect and compassion. So as October 27th celebrates Mother-In-Law Day,
BollyCurry presents to you Bollywood's real life mother-in-laws and the
special bond they share with their child's spouse.
The Kapoor khandan beti
married Saif Ali Khan
, the Nawab of Patuadi, in a low key affair at a court in Mumbai. The lass is now the bahu
the legendary actress, Sharmila Tagore. Kareena publicly calls Tagore
"Maa" and has stated her to be a calm, easygoing and non-intrusive
person. The sad part is that they haven't starred in a film together
and their respective fans are eager to see them share the frame.
However, being the Begum of Patuadi, Tagore also wants Kareena to abide
by the rituals and fulfill her position.
's eldest daughter Twinkle married Akshay
Kumar in a private affair on January 17th, 2001.
The Indian Jackie Chan, as he is fondly called, is known to share a
strong bond of love and respect with his mother-in-law and are often
seen in each other's company. Both share a good
relation and it is evident in every family get together. Both are also
throwing lavish parties in honour of each other, which is just what the
wife of the country's superstar is also the mother-in-law of the former Miss World,
Aishwarya Rai. Jaya shares a great camaraderie with her bahu and openly praises
her in front of everyone. The latter has been known to state that there are many a qualities she likes
about her bahu which also includes her loving nature. While, Aish
shares a much closer bond with Amitabh Bachchan, it's no doubt that she
is liked by one and all in her sasural as well. We hope this
saas-bahu duo continues to share a wonderful relation.
, the action hero who is shy and
quiet by nature, fell in love with the vivacious girl-next-door, Kajol.
Kajol is the daughter of yesteryear actress, Tanuja. Though both are
in taste and class, Ajay shares a beautiful bond with Kajol's mother,
are seen attending events together and praising each other in nearly all
the interviews. During the period of Tanuja's illness, Ajay
purposefully stayed at home so he could take care their children while
Kajol attended to her mother. Must say, a true son!
The super cool Khan who has been missing from the big
screen off late tied the knot with Mumtaz's
daughter, Natasha. Mumtaz did nothing to hide her happiness about their
union and has often been seen appreciating Fardeen. He is the son which
she has been searching for and both share a
striking bond. Though Fardeen's career has been low and his private life
secret, it's no secret that he loves Natasha's family. We wonder if
Fardeen can bring back the brilliance of Mumtaz back on our screens in a
It was widely speculated that Babita was very much
against the matrimonial alliance of
Saif and her daughter, Kareena, citing various reasons such as the large
age gap. However, witnessing her daughter's elated happiness first
hand, the protective mother gleefully accepted Saif
as her son-in-law. Though the duo have rarely been spotted together at
events, we are sure a strong bond exist between the two.
A mother-in-law is often the first hurdle to pass
before entering the holy sanctity of marriage and she also the one to
ease unfamiliarity when the bond between partners has been sealed. She may not receive the praise she deserves for her accomplishments so
here's a standing ovation to all those mother-in-laws making the house a
happy home for all newcomers.
