Mother’s day around the corner. This coming Sunday, the entire globe is going to celebrate motherhood. Although there shouldn’t be a special day to honour your mother and make them feel good, having a fabulous day doesn’t hurt anyone. Moreover, while we have often celebrated some iconic mothers from the silver screen and the idiot box, let’s give an ode to the moms from the digital world this year. OTT has given us several characters that have marked a spot in our hearts in a short span, especially mothers. So let’s take a look at some trendy moms from the digital world!
Meira Sharma, Mentalhood (ALTBalaji)
Played by Karisma Kapoor in ALTBalaji’s popular series Mentalhood, Meira Sharma was one of the most relatable mother characters that we have seen in recent times. Most of the shows depict mothers either as superheroes or someone with whom we could sympathize. However, Meira is a multi-tasking mom trying to find the right balance in parenting, came out of the blue and, was relatable to most millennial mothers. Via her blog, she took us to the topsy-turvy world of motherhood and the struggle they have to go through while raising their children.
DCP Vartika Chaturvedi, Delhi Crimes (Netflix)
A fierce woman in force, and a strong pillar at home, there’s no best way to describe DCP Vartika Chaturvedi’s character from Netflix’s Delhi Crimes. Shefali Shah’s earnest performance got her applauds not from the critics but the masses as well. Vartika’s maternal instincts, not just for her biological daughter but also for the female victims, are subtle but impactful. The International Emmy Awards winner show had one of the most powerful mothers in recent times.
Anuradha Kishore, Tandav (Amazon Prime)
Not all mothers are saints. Some have their flaws. However, Tandav’s Anuradha Kishore is one of those mothers who will go to any extent for her child. The Amazon Prime series saw Dimple Kapadia playing the character. Anuradha is greedy, cunning, and ready to play dirty politics to ensure her son has a bright future. While many may disagree with her actions, one can’t deny that her maternal instincts drove all her deeds.
Aarya Sareen, Aarya (Hotstar)
Sushmita Sen made a comeback as Aarya Sareen in Hotstar’s 2020 drama Aarya. She is a caring mother and as simple as a mother can be. However, when her children are in danger, she becomes ferocious. She runs a drug cartel and becomes a Mafia queen, yet her core lies with her children. While it may not be the most relatable character, it was indeed a powerful one.
