We all love Bollywood films and the drama it brings into our lives. Many of us cry while watching a film because of the tremendous emotions flowing right through us from the screen of the theatres. In the same scenario, we often forget that the acting seen on the screen is not real but just an act powerful enough to make us a part of the story.
Similarly, if an actor is shown of a certain age on-screen, that doesn't mean that they actually are of same age; which made me think what the real life situation would be. You'll be amazed after you see the following list of on-screen actors who played the role of mothers but in real life, they can never actually be a mother to a son with these following age differences. The age differences actors share in real-life are impractical to be there in one's real life; especially when the reel-mother is younger than her son in real life. To give you a prologue about it, all the three influential Khans are a part of the list, and Akshay Kumar was elder to his mother in one of his films.
Salman and Late Reema Lagoo acted together in a total of 11 films, and in almost all of them, she played the role of his mother when she was just seven years older to him. There are also two other actors in the following list who happened to play Salman Khan's mother, but their real ages will surprise you.
We all remember Dabangg for sure, and Chulbul Pandey who was only 8 years younger to his mother, played by Dimple Kapadia.
The pair acted together in 13 movies, and some flicks had Himani Shivpuri play Salman's mother's role when she and Salman just share an age difference of 5 years.
A film which is still remembered for the iconic roles played by its actors, Mother India, released in 1957 and showcased a trio of a mother and her two sons. Surprisingly, all the three actors were of the same age (28 years old) at the time of the filming. Yes, you read that right and peculiarly one of her reel sons was her real husband, Sunil Dutt.
The actors are only 10 years apart when it comes to their real-life age difference
Try and recall the film "Kal Ho Naa Ho" where late Reema played the role of SRK's mother when she was only seven years elder to him.
Kirron Kher has acted as both (Mum and Stepmom) for SRK, wherein 'Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna' (2006) and 'Om Shanti Om' (2007) she was his mother and in 'Main Hoon Na' (2004) she was his stepmom. The actors are only 10 years away when it comes to their real-life age difference.
Anil Kapoor's mum's role was played by Farida Jalal in 'Laadla' (1994) and 'Loafer' (1996).
Daljeet Singh (DJ) a.k.a. Aamir Khan of Rang De Basanti had a unique relation with his mum, Mitro (Kirron Kher), in the film who in real life had an age difference of merely nine years.
Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. was one of the many movies Sanjay Dutt acted in, which proved to be very influential among the youth. Strangely enough, Rohini Hattangadi who gives "Jaadu ki Jhappi" to Munna Bhai is only nine years older than him.
It would be hard for you to remember this one, both the actors pictured starred in the film Yaadein (2001). Though Supriya Karnik played the role of Hrithik Roshan's mother, she was one year younger to him.
Akshay Kumar starrer film Waqt (2005) had Shefali Shah as Akshay's mum but in real life, she is younger than him with an age gap of 5 years.
