They say, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach; but if you’re planning on wooing any of these studs, be prepared for a detour through their mommies!
The world over, girls may be nuts over them, but these B-town celebs are already wrapped around another female’s finger and have no shame in admitting it. They may have grown older, wealthier and wiser; but here’s a list of the seven mama’s boys of Bollywood who still turn to their mothers at the end of the day:
Sonam Kapoor may have unkindly jibed that Ranbir was so devoted to mom Neetu Kapoor that she still clips his toenails for him, but Ranbir remains a proud and unabashed mama’s boy. All the girls he dates apparently need to pass muster through Neetu, and his mom is also said to have had a hand in encouraging him to break things off with ex-girlfriend Deepika Padukone. Our sympathies, Katrina.
The fact that he’s approaching 50 with no signs of looking to settle down may worry his fans, but Salman already has a lady in his life and is content devoting all his attention to her - The 48 year old hunk stays a stone’s throw away from mom Salma Khan and credits his passion for painting to her.
In his four year Bollywood career, Ranveer has been bestowed with a plethora of accolades; the term ‘mama’s boy’ being just one of the many titles he’s shouldered. The Gunday actor is said to dote on his mom and has famously gone on record to claim that he shares everything under the sun with her. Gee, thanks Ranveer. Like we needed MORE reasons to fall for you!
He may have donned a variety of hats and portrayed myriad roles throughout his film career, but apparently none come as close to his real life self as that of the adarsh beta Prem from Vivaah. Dismissing rumors of a rift having grown between the duo when he opted out of mom Neelima’s production in favor of his dad Pankaj Kapur’s, the actor is said to have cut his Goa trip short so he could return home to spend his birthday with her.
Post his high profile breakup with Bipasha, John’s dating life may have been the centre of much attention but apparently the only lady John has eyes for is mom Firoza Irani. From flying her over when he felt homesick on the sets of a movie shoot in US to soliciting her advice while signing movie roles, John’s life has all the makings of a Sooraj Bajratya movie.
His name may be used most often in connection with his superstar dad Amitabh or his gorgeous wife Aishwarya, but apparently the member of the Bachchan clan whom Abhishek is closest to is momma Jaya; Bachchan Jr. is even said to have overcome his aversion to astrology and sport an astro ring just to put her mind at ease.
From gossip sessions to career advice, there is very little that Karan Johar doesn’t share with his mom Hiroo Johar. Bollywood’s star director appears to have finally found his lady love, and a whole lot closer home than any of us would have imagined; as apparent when he tweeted to his mother on her 70th birthday and added, “She is the love of my life.”
