As the world celebrated Mother's Day on the 13 May, the film industry also joined in celebrating mothers of the world. Karan Johar, who turned father a year ago, wrote a touching message for his mother, Hiroo Johar, on his Twiter.
"Dear mother....you raise the bar of unconditional love...every other emotion is deeply envious of you.... how can you protect yourself when the word “protect” was given birth to by you...." wrote Johar.

He was not alone. His co-star, Kajol, used the most current analogy to describe her mother. Even as the 'Avengers' phenomenon has just faded off, Kajol dedicated her 'superpower' to her mom.
Even the 75-year old Amitabh Bachchan was no stranger from feeling for his mother. The actor shared an image of his own mother, the late Teji Bachchan, through Twitter.
