They are your biggest supporters, toughest critics, loudest cheerleaders, and strictest teachers. They are also the epitome of love and strength. If it weren’t for mom’s constantly watching and leading the way, we’d all be a little lost, in life and otherwise. Here is what a few actors had to say about the one thing they’ve learned from mom that they follow to this day. After all, Mommy knows best!! #HappyMothersDayTaapsee Pannu: My mom’s internal strength is what I became a huge fan of once I grew up. The way she handled 3 really different personalities at home (my Dad, my sister and myself) the way she became a shock absorber of our madness and still kept us together. The way she was the bridge between my Dad and me and still continues to be. The way she doesn’t give up on any one of us even though we r very mean to her at times because she is way more evolved and stronger person than us.Maniesh Paul: There are a plethora of lessons that I have learned from my mother. Out of all if I have to mention anyone, it would be her teaching that taught me to stay grounded, to be down-to-earth with everyone, regardless of the fact who you are and what you have achieved in your life. She taught me that work will come and go but it’s your good deeds and behaviour that will stay on. I staunchly believe in this saying. So yes, a big big thanks to my mother.Ali Fazal: Somebody is always watching. Always. Just remember to fold your clothes and your own sheets. Keep your room neat. Your life is but a version of that room.Richa Chadha: What I learned from my Mom is compassion. When I was little, I would kill ants and insects. My mother told me – “Yeh cheenti shayad apni mummy ke paas ja rahi hai?” That was such a strong rephrase at the time. It’s made me compassionate and ethical.Arunoday Singh: The greatest thing my mother has taught me is that happiness and self-esteem are not synonymous with success. She taught me to seek the joy, to stay in the light. No matter what I’m dealing with.Sumeet Vyas: That there’s no harm in listening, rather than always waiting for your turn to speak. Also Dosing off in the most dreadful and tense situations in life.
