Shabana Azmi in Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani

Shabana Azmi played the headstrong Jamini, the matriarch of the Bengali household, where Ranveer’s Rocky comes to stay on a mission to see how he gels with them. In one crucial scene, when Chandon Chatterjee (Tota Roychoudhury) is ridiculed for his kathak dance, he reveals how his mother, Jamini, never said no to his passion for dance. She supported his talent and always pushed him to do his best. Jamini is not only a caring parent, but she can also be fierce and pragmatic when it comes to understanding the needs of her children. Shabana plays the character with tremendous grace.

Deepika Padukone in Jawan

Deepika Padukone made an entire nation tear up with her brief but hugely impactful turn in Atlee’s Jawan. Nobody expected Deepika to steal the film in her special cameo appearance as Shah Rukh Khan, aka Azad’s jailed mother, Aishwarya. She knows she has limited time with her son, so she inculcates all the care, values and love into her son from a young age. That love culminates in the song Aaraari Raaro, where her bond with Azad shares a beautiful parallel between Jawan’s story and Lord Krishna’s life.

Deepti Naval in Goldfish

In Goldfish, Deepti Naval delivers a compassionate performance as a woman suffering from dementia. But that is the word she won’t like. Suffer. Sadhana Tripathi will not relent even when her situation worsens, which means her relationship with daughter Anamika Fields (Kalki Koechlin) hits many rough patches. Trauma, resentments, anger and all the unsaid things pent up for years find release in this quietly affecting film on the complex relationship shared between mothers and daughters.
