On Mother's Day, here's an interesting take on the small screen mom-children pairs from your favourite daily soaps. Did someone say the actresses looked too young to be screen ma? Read on... Mean mom
Eva Grover, Sumona Chakravarti and Kajal Pisal in Bade Achche Lagte Hai
This mom-daughter trio are stylish, suave
and mean! Their nasty smirks, and cunning faces give away the inevitable -they are partners in crime out to make the bechari Priya (Saakshi Tanwar)'s life a living hell. It's another matter that Niharika (Eva Grover) looks more like an elder sister than mom to her evil children!
Perfect matchHina Khan
& Lata Sabharwal
in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai This maa-beti jodi of Akshara (played by Hina Khan) and Rajshri (Lata Sabharwal) in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai look more like sisters than mom-daughter. Both are playing aadarsh bhartiya naaris who put their families first. From the worry lines on their faces, to the wide smiles - surely Akshara and her mother are a perfect match for each other in the show. Even when it comes to shedding tears or following Indian traditions, they perfectly complimenting each other. Separated at birth?
Ankita Lokhande and Asha Negi in Pavitra Rishta Archana and her daughter Purvi in Pavitra Rishta could pass off as sisters. It's kind of uncanny how two actress have so much physical resemblance with each other. Post leap (in the show), Archana (essayed by Ankita Lokhande) might not have 'aged' on screen, but she's the kind of self-reliant and loving mom every girl wants. May be anti-ageing creams are working wonders! Traditional hues
Narayani Shastri and Gulki Joshi in Phir Subah Hogi In this true-story inspired soap Phir Subah Hogi, Gulabia (played by Narayani Shastri) and her daughter Sugni (Gulki Joshi) In fact, Gulki completely fails to look convincing as the spunky daughter of a rai dancer. Gulki looks too grown up to be daughter to a 30-something ravishing actress like Narayani . This is one classic case of casting ouch moment! Divine Magic? Mouni Roy
and Shalini Kapoor
in Devon Ke Dev Mahadev
Shalini Kapoor who plays mother to Sati (essayed by Mouni Roy) in Devon Ke Dev Mahadev is barely a few years elder than Mouni! The bright period costume and loud make-up fail to help Shalini look convincing as mother of a 20-somehing! She ends up looking like a sister, instead of mother. We know goddesses don't look old!
