BollyCurry celebrates the birthday of two super-moms who have won millions of hearts across the globe. We're talking about none other than the gorgeous Shilpa Shetty Kundra and the veteran actress, Dimple Kapadia.

Dimple Kapadia was born on 8th June, 1957 to a Gujarati family. She studied at St. Joseph's Convent High School where she was spotted at the age of 13 by Raj Kapoor, who then cast her opposite Rishi Kapoor in the romantic film, Bobby (1973). The film was a great starting platform which also earned her a Filmfare Best Actress Award. After the film's release, Kapadia retired from acting to concentrate on her marriage to Rajesh Khanna and to raise her daughters, Twinkle and Rinke. She eventually separated from Khanna in 1982, not completing the divorce proceedings, and returned to the big screen with Zakhmi Sher (1984). Kapadia continued to appear in successful films such as Saagar (1985), Allah Rakha (1986), Ram Lakhan (1989), Batwaara (1989), Khoon Ka Karz (1991), Rudaali (1993), Gardish (1993) and Krantiveer (1994). Recently, she appeared as a mother in Dabangg (2010), Patiala House (2011) and as a leading actor in What the Fish (2013).

The film earned her a nomination for Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Award. Her first leading role was in Aag (1994), opposite Govinda, which failed at the Box Office but earned appreciation for the actress. She then appeared in films such as Main Khiladi Tu Anari (1994), Aao Pyaar Karen (1994), Auzaar (2007), Pardesi Babu (1998) until the blockbuster Dhadkan (2000) happened to the gorgeous beauty. Starring opposite Akshay Kumar and Suniel Shetty, the film was loved and appreciated by the audience and critics for its inspiring music, story, characters and brilliant direction.
