When it comes to mother roles, no one can beat the quintessential maa of them all, Nirupa Roy.
But others after her weren't so bad, either -- from the dominating mom Hema Malini (Jamai Raja), the teary-eyed mom Rakhee (Shakti), the loving mom Reema Lagoo (in most Sooraj Barjatya films) to new age moms like Dimple Kapadia (Luck By Chance) and Ratna Pathak Shah (Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na).
But hey, that's just our opinion. We would like to know yours too. With Mother's Day coming up this weekend, we'd like to know which actress made the best mother through the years.
Go ahead, tell us!
