The mother son relationship is a very special one. Some actors have played the role of mom and son so well on screen that they deserve a very special mention.
Kirron Kher and Abhishek share a very cute and lovable relationship as mom and son in Dostana. Kirron plays the paranoid heterosexual mother, cursing all the Indian Gods for giving her a son-in-law instead of a bahu, with a lot of flair. Abhishek too plays along with the ruse for his own reasons – but the hilarity that ensues sure leaves a mark on our hearts.
Remember the song in Khabhi Khushi Khabi Ghum where SRKs makes an awesome entrance?? In spite of the loud music and the blowing wind, Jaya Bachchan senses her son’s arrival and comes running with her puja ki thali. It still gives us goose bumps. Shahrukh Khan has always played every role amazingly well on screen, and he plays the devoted son to Jaya Bachchan very well in KKKG.
Rekha has always played a diva on screen, but in this movie she plays the role of mom very well. Hrithik Roshan plays the shy superhero with hidden powers very well. Blue aliens, 10-year-olds and a device that can communicate with extraterrestrial beings made this a must watch movie. But what stayed with us was the mother and son pair that made us feel all lovey dovey inside.
Remember the obnoxious and loud mouthed Punjabi mother in the cute click flick based on Chetan Bhagat’s famous novel. She plays the over protective mother to Arjun Kapoor, who’s clearly smitten by Alia. We loved the cajoling nature of Amrita and the mama’s boy Arjun a lot!
With these two talented actors, one is always in for a treat. Nirupa has always played the role of the tragic mom of Bollywood effortlessly. While the legend, Amitabh gave a performance to remember in Deewar, making this mother son duo pairing immortal. They have worked together in many more movies like Mard, Geraftaar, Inquilaab, Suhaag and Muqaddar Ka Sikandar.
A very unique mother-son pairing, this one worked amazingly well. Ratna Pathak takes her role of a cool, but sarcastic mom to another level! She talks to the spirit of Naseeruddin Shah through a portrait – leaving us in splits. Imran is super cute in this movie – trying to figure out life, he takes his mother’s advice now and then, with hilarious outcomes. We’d sure love to see them play mom son again on screen sometime soon.

Another unique pairing of Smita and Ranbir as mom and son. We see some very good humour when Smita played momma to Ranbir in Ajab Prem ki Ghazab Kahani. It really was a super cute modern love story we enjoyed watching.
