Zee TV airs a star-studded special on Mother's Day
In a world where we are glued to our smartphones, WhatsApping for work, WhatsApping for fun, Tweeting our takes on everything under the sun, living our lives on Facebook more than we live in the real world, we often forget to pause for just a moment and acknowledge all that our mothers do to ensure our every happiness. While all of us say we have only two hands and do limited things, mothers have multiple hands and an unending will to keep doing things for their child despite all hardships. And yet, we often forget to spend quality time with our mothers and express our heartfelt gratitude for their unconditional love.
So this Mother’s Day, Zee TV sets out to make it special by showcasing a three hour star-studded special show - Shukriya Maa, where celebrities from Bollywood and Television will pay a loving tribute to their mothers and thank them in their own unique, special ways. The show will feature Soha Ali Khan surprising mother Sharmila Tagore by travelling to Delhi and presenting her with a Kindle since she's a voracious reader. The gorgeous mother-daughter duo will be seen sharing interesting anecdotes from their lives.
Farah Khan, will be seen taking her mother out for lunch and in her trademark style, indulging in playful banter with her. Adding to the fun, Farah’s triplets will make a surprise visit, making their grandmother beam with joy. Gorgeous Karishma Kapoor will share her innermost feelings and lesser known facts about her mother Babita and how her kids are quite like their granny and that the values she has passed on are the ones she has imbibed from her mother.
Bollywood’s adorable brother-sister duo Huma Qureshi and Saqib Saleem will speak candidly about their chemistry with each other and their mother. Huma has apparently always harbored dreams of taking her mother on Hajj and Saqib calls his mother every single day before sleeping. Not one to be left behind in surprising her kids, Huma's mother landed at the shoot bringing along gifts that these two have given her as kids on Mother’s Day, and shared how she has kept all their first things safe with her even today! Actress Jacqueline Fernandes, who has been missing her mother, will reconnect with maternal affection by giving a sweet surprise to little kids as she plans to visit an orphanage.
On the other hand, our small screen brigade is just as inventive when it comes to making this day memorable for their mothers. They will bring the house down with their special performances dedicated to their mothers. And as a surprise to them, their mothers will spill the beans about their star kids…catch television heartthrob Karanvir Bohra get caught off guard when his mom reveals what a naughty boy he was right from his younger days and how he would always suck his thumb and was poor in studies. And how she got to know about Karanvir dating a girl on national television and the girl in question was Teejay Sidhu, whom he went on to marry later!
Karan Tacker’s mother shares that he has always been the 'good' boy all his life and has remained humble and the most important thing she loves about Karan is that even today when he comes late from shoots he comes and meets them and then only he goes back to his room. Actor Mouny Roy, who will be seen dancing on ‘Ma Teri Chunar’ and ‘Teri Galiyan’, got emotional as she requested her mother to not leave her like Baba did, leaving everyone on the sets with a lump in their throat!
The vivacious Ragini Khanna will have everyone in splits as she shares that coming from a filmy family, her mother is super filmy and even dances on ‘Baby Doll main sone di’. Ragini adds that her mother has lost considerable weight just so that she can attack Ragini’s wardrobe from time to time!
