Mother’s Day Special: From Karisma Kapoor to Sushmita Sen – Moms on the digital screens who left an impact!


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
