Kinshuk Vaidya – RadhaKrishn
Kinshuk Vaidya who will be seen essaying the role of Arjun in RadhaKrishn’ says “This Mothers’ day I would like to thank my mother for all the efforts and sacrifices that she has taken to support my career choice and my dreams. From accompanying me on shoots to helping me cope with studies, she has been my strongest support and biggest critic .I consider her as my lucky charm and owe all that I have become today to her sleepless nights and endless patience towards me. As a kid, I used to make special handmade cards for my mother and present it to her on Mother’s Day. That became a tradition and even today, I’ll make sure to take out time to do this, to make her day a little extra special for her despite the lockdown. We will relive our fond memories together. It’s always a delight to see an outpour of emotion on her face when she reads the loving message on my card and I wish every mother a very Happy Mother’s Day.”
Zalak Desai – RadhaKrishn
Zalak Desai who essays the role of Rukmini in Star Bharat’ RadhaKrishn mentions “I am what I am today because of my mother, the recognition that I have got is because of her guidance and faith towards my passion for acting. People have Godfathers to guide them in life but I have a Godmother. I remember the time when as a kid I used to love making cards and crafty items for my mother in order to thank her and celebrate the occasion. The best gift that I can give my mother this year is to learn how to cook authentic Gujarati food. This lockdown has given me a chance to prepare and treat her a wholesome meal at home. Learning how to cook has allowed me to enjoy this skill as well and I plan to celebrate this day with her by cooking a delicious meal for her.”
Harsh Nagar - Kartik Purnima
Harsh Nagar who essays the lead role in Star Bharat’ show Kartik Purnima mention “I am an individual who likes to gift my loved ones and this quality of mine developed when I was young as I used to spend time shooting in Mumbai while my parents lived in Delhi. Knowing during this lockdown delivery of cake and flowers are not completely safe, this time I asked my father to help me make Mother’s Day special for my mom by baking a banana cake. I have been sending him videos of how to make the cake and asked him to bake it in the morning before she wakes up so it stays a surprise and I will make sure I will be present on video call to surprise her. I planned on gifting her a new phone but due to the lockdown it is not possible and since I have time in my hands, the least I could do is make a video collage with a Mother’s Day message for her, reliving old, special memories.”
Kavita Ghai - Kartik Purnima
Kavita Ghai who essays the role of Soni Mehra in the show Kartik Purnima says “Becoming a mother is one of the most beautiful gifts I have received and I attribute all the confidence and excitement to become one, to my mother. The kind of human and the mother I have become to my children is duly because of the way she raised me. All these years since despite being busy shooting in Mumbai, my kids have never failed to surprise me on Mother’s Day. They used to make sure the gifts get delivered and we used to catch up on video calls. This year it's different, I’m blessed to be home and spend time with my family amidst the lockdown. Can’t wait to see what my kids have planned in store for me this year."

This day is not just about wishing our Moms' a happy mothers’ day but dedicating an entire day to them. I am too attached to my mother, ever since our childhood me and my younger sister Arohi would celebrate mothers' day. We used to make handmade greeting cards and Arohi would morally support me to do so. We would use our piggy bank money to buy a cake and something for Mumma. Our mom used to act very surprised by our gesture, now that I have essayed the role of a mother in Meri Gudiya, I know how kids surprise their moms with such cute and kind gestures. We used to help Mumma in the kitchen and little household work that day. This years' Mothers' day I am away from my Mum, I'll miss her more this time. But we have already started to plan for the day and my sister is going to bake a cake for Mum on my behalf as I will help her bake the cake virtually."

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my mom for all the sacrifices she has made to make me a better man. I have learnt a great deal of cooking authentic kashmiri dishes from her. This year I will video call her thank her for all that she has done for us. Growing up she has been an inspiration for me as she taught me to be independent. Happy Mother’s Day to every Mom!"
