“God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers” – Jewish proverb

Referring to above the proverb, which describes Mother as a messenger of god and love for her child is like nothing else in the world.

Being a mother is a privilege and on this special day we wish all the mothers (the Goddesses) Happy Mother’s Day.

It’s not just a day, it’s a tribute to motherhood which we celebrate. So, let see what b-town celebrities have to say on Mother’s day to all the mothers across the world.

Lata Mangeshkar: Namaskar. Maa ke naam sirf ek din kyo jab ki hamara jeevan hi uska diya hua hai. (Why dedicate only one day to mothers when our life is a gift from them?)

Hema Malini: From one mom to all you moms out there — a very happy Mother’s Day filled with love, joy and complete bliss. Be cherished.

Madhuri Dixit-Nene: To all of our mothers, who brought us into the world, nurtured us and supported us: Happy Mother’s Day!

Boman Irani: Wah maa. Mother’s Day everyday.

Sajid Khan: To all my friends and their moms — Happy Mother’s Day. Remember moms are always right even if don’t agree at that time.

Farhan Akhtar: So much of a mother’s time is dedicated to her children, that she could have, consciously or unconsciously, put aside some dream or goal she had for herself. Today, ask her if there is any such unfulfilled dream and if so, support her to achieve it. Like she has you through your life. Happy Mother’s Day.

Shilpa Shetty Kundra: Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful women out there. Perfecting the balancing act.

Lisa Ray: This Mother’s Day honouring all the goddesses in my life.

Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor was present at the song launch of his upcoming film 102 Not Out.

New Delhi, April 19: Few days after many Bollywood celebrities took to the streets to protest the Kathua and Unnao rape case, a hurt Amitabh Bachchan asked media not to rake up the issue and he feels “disgusted” even talking about it.

The 75-year-old actor — who is the face of the government’s “Beti Bachao-Beti Padao” campaign — was asked about the two rapes that have outraged the country.

“Mujhe uss vishay par charcha karne mein ghinn aati hai. So uss vishay ko uchhalo mat (I feel disgusted even talking about it. So, don’t rake up this issue). It’s terrible to even talk about it,” he told reporters.

Big B was speaking at the song launch of his upcoming film 102 Not Out.

On January 17, an eight-year-old girl was allegedly abducted, drugged, raped, tortured and killed Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua district.

Mumbai, April 19: Veteran actors Rishi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan will reunite on the big screen after 27 years, but the former doesn’t “feel the gap”.

Talking about his experience of working with Amitabh in the forthcoming film “102 Not Out”, Rishi told the media here on Thursday: “We worked in this film after 27 years but from the time we went on the set, we started rehearsing. We did not feel the gap between these years.”

“I feel proud to say that I have been working with him for the last 44 years. Our first film was ‘Kabhi Kabhie’ (1976) and the last time we worked together was in ‘Ajooba’ (1991).”

Together, they have delivered celebrated films like “Naseeb”, “Kabhi Kabhie”, “Amar Akbar Anthony” and “Coolie”.

Amitabh appreciates all his “102 Not Out” co-stars, including Jimit Trivedi.

“I believe if you are appreciating my performance, it is due to my co-artistes. If they don’t perform well enough for your reaction, then your reaction would go wrong,” said the megastar.

“So I would like to compliment Rishiji and Jimit for this film. Whenever you see (a movie), if you like it or don’t like it, it depends on their performance too. Our performances are the reflection of their performances,” he added.

The film’s team gathered here to promote its song “Badumbaaa”, which is composed and sung by Amitabh.

Not many films are made on senior citizens. Asked why there isn’t much representation of senior citizens in films, Amitabh, 75, said: “Senior citizens are very respectable people of our society. If they are not there, we are not there. Whenever we try to make a film on them, we treat them with dignity. I hope that through this film, we will be able to convey the message to our audience.”

Adding to that, Rishi said: “He (Amitabh) did films like ‘Piku’ and ‘Pink’. Yes, there are not many films made on senior citizens but there are not many Bachchans around, right?”

“102 Not Out”, directed by Umesh Shukla, will release on May 4.
