The relationship between a mother and her son is quite unique. If a father is his daughter’s first love, then a son always looks at the qualities of his mother in his wife. From knowing all his secrets to being an inspiration, a mother plays a vital role in the upbringing of her son. From being his emotional anchor throughout his life to make him realise his mistake, it is the mother, who imbibes good values in him. And a similar relationship is shared between actor, Abhimanyu Dassani and his gorgeous mother, Bhagyashree.

Praising his mother’s talent, he revealed, “She is good at what she does and this is the time when talent is getting noticed. You can look like me and still get lead roles. Also, if she spends too much time at home, she’d want me to get married.”
Due to the lockdown, Abhimanyu has been spending his time at home. In the same interview, the actor has revealed, “My mom (actress Bhagyashree) was happy that I was spending time at home. But now, even my family has had enough of me.” He also revealed that he is quite good at cooking and his culinary skills came as a rescue during the lockdown.
