Mumbai, May 12: For Toral Rasputra, her mother is her 4 a.m. friend, while Siddharth Shukla describe his mom as a shield who protects him from the worst. On Mother's Day Sunday, small screen celebrities pay tribute to their moms.
This is what they have to say:
Toral (Anandi of "Balika Vadhu"): I am very close to my mother and I consider her to be my 4 a.m. friend. She is someone who keeps me rooted and has always been my staunchest supporter. She was the most happiest when I was offered to play Anandi.
So on this Mother's Day all I want to do is tell my mom what she means to me. Had she been any different, I wouldn't be where I am today.
Siddharth Shukla (Shiv Raj Shekhar of "Balika Vadhu"): My mother has always shielded me from everything bad. I do not mind being called a mama's boy, in fact I am proud of my mother and everything that she has done for me. On this Mother's Day, I would like to wish all the mothers everywhere a very Happy Mother's Day.
Dipika Samson (Simar of "Sasural Simar Ka"): Mothers are a symbol of love, happiness and joy all over the world. They are the binding factor and the glue that keeps a family together. I have seen the things that my mother has done for me without complaining. All because she wants to see us happy and I can't thank her enough for it.
Having played the role of a mother on-screen I have come to realise how strong the bond of a child is with his mother and more importantly how special it is. I wish all mothers all the happiness in the world this day.
Avika Gor (Roli of "Sasural Simar Ka"): Transforming herself to be a friend, a guide, a mentor and a protector in our lives, mothers are a constant force present to shower us with everything we need. On Mother's Day, I want to wish all these super women everywhere.
Vivian Dsena (R.K. of "Madhubala- Ek Ishq, Ek Junoon"): I want to thank my mother for everything that she has done for me. Most importantly on this very special day, I would want to let her know how she means more to me with each passing day and I will always be indebted for all her love and support. It is because of her support and trust that I am in this industry today and I will always be indebted to her for believing in me.
