Bollywood has always played a significant role in shaping the mentality and emotions of Indian people. Though we know the harsh reality that none of it is actually true, it is the work of the actors to make it seem all real. And most of the time they succeed doing it.
They make us cry with their tears, they scare us with their fear and even blow our mind with supervised action scenes. And all this because of the actor on-screen whose acting is powerful enough to make us a part of their story.
On this note, there are many female actors in the industry who performed roles which were far differed than their real-life situation. Yes! They became mothers to on-screen sons who were older than them in real life.
Come, let's have a look.
In the movie Cocktail, Dimple Kapadia played the role of Saif Ali Khan's mother. But did you know that Saif Ali Khan is 13 years older then Dimple Kapadia?
*He doesn't look that old though!*
The film Shakti hit theatres in 1982. In the film, Raakhee Gulzar played the role of Amitabh Bachchan's mother. Raakhee Gulzar, born August 15, 1947 is younger than her on-screen son Amitabh Bachchan who was born on 11 October 1942.
Well known actor, Rohini Hattangadi was born in 1951. She was 11 years younger than Big B who was born in 1942 when she played his mother in the 1990 action drama Agneepath.
In the movie Waqt, Shefali Shah who was born in 1972, played 1967-born Akshay Kumar's mother. Well, this is weird!
In the film Mission Kashmir, Sonali Kulkarni played foster mother to Hrithik Roshan. Both were born in 1974 but, Hrithik Roshan is, in fact, older than Sonali Kulkarni. He was born on January 10, whereas Kulkarni was born on November 3, 1974.
1975-born Supriya Karnik played mother to 1976-born Hrithik Roshan in the 2001 romantic drama Yaadein.
Bollywood has changed a lot since the 50s. Well, do you think a time will come when we will see Priyanka Chopra or Alia Bhatt playing mothers in the movies? And that too of a man older than them?
