3 min read

Parenting is tough. Every parent can vouch what a roller-coaster ride parenting can be. I have a toddler and heeding to his constant demands can seem tougher than matching thumkas to an item number. Someone like me, who has been brought up on a staple diet of Bollywood movies, always thinks of fellow Bollywood moms in highly emotional parenting moments.

Here are all the Bollywood moms I can relate to.

  1. When my kid helps clean up, and I’m royally pleased (pun intended):

Parenting can be as exasperating as watching Himesh Reshammiya sing Tandoori nights, or as exhilarating as a Bollywood mom watching her son return home. It can seem as ludicrous as happy endings in movies, and tougher than Gully Boy’s lyrics. And sometimes all these feelings can be experienced on the same day. Thankfully there is a Bollywood mom for every occasion.
