Among all the relationships and bonds, the bond between a mother-in-law and a daughter-in-law is one of the most underrated and undervalued. Owing to our daily soaps and television dramas, the bond between a saas and bahu is often deemed negatively.
It is a common misconception that a mother-in-law and a daughter-in-law cannot get along, but this is far from the truth. There have been instances where many bahus have developed a strong bond with their in-laws. Similarly, there are a few duos of saas and bahu in our tinsel town who adore, respect, and idolise each other equivalently and share a kinship bond.
Some Bollywood divas have a special bond with their mothers-in-law. They are, without a doubt, the enraptured bahus who are frequently spotted spending quality time at varied social events. Not only that but the mothers-in law of our divas rarely miss a chance to heap praises on their bahus and here are few instances which will want you to have a bond these saas-bahu jodis of the industry share.
Sharmila Tagore, Saif Ali Khan's mother and a veteran actress, adores her daughter-in-law Kareena Kapoor. She lavished praise on her daughter-in-law in one of her interviews with a leading daily, saying Kareena's presence calms her.
"I am so fond of her. What I like best about her is how calm she is. I've witnessed her interactions with her staff, hairdresser, and designer. I would sometimes snap at my hairdresser if we were being summoned and I would say zara jaldi karo, but not Kareena",
Sharmila told ETimes in an interview. Sharmila also lauded Kareena for her poise and demeanour. She also added that Kareena often tells her that she is like her daughter ans Sharmila replies by saying, yes you are.
When it comes to Jaya Bachchan and her daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, the two are said to get along swimmingly. It has been hinted at in several of their previous interviews. In 2007, when Jaya Bachchan showed up on the popular talk show Koffee With Karan, she feted praise on the Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam star.
When Karan Johar questioned Jaya about Aishwarya, the veteran couldn't help but chuckle and said,
“She’s lovely, I love her. You know I have always loved her. I think its wonderful because she is such a big star herself. I like that quality that she stands behind." She further added, "another beautiful thing is she’s fitted in so well. I think she’s a strong lady, she has a lot of dignity.”
