From a nurturer to a teacher and sometimes a friend, a mother plays many different roles in a child's life, yet her love remains the same throughout it. No matter whether we are six or sixty, we always crave for our mommy's hug, her home-cooked food and her voice that can calm us in any situation. And an exactly similar bond was shared between Bollywood actor, Sanjay Dutt and his late mother and legendary actress, Nargis Dutt.

Nargis Dutt, who had graced our silver screens in the 1940s to 60''s and became the epitome of beauty for many. However, at the peak of her career, Nargis had left the glamour world in order to make her own family. She had shared a beautiful bond with her son, Sanjay Dutt and he had remained the most pampered kid of her. For those who don't know, Nargis ji had left for the heavenly abode, just three days before the release of her son's debut movie, Rocky in the year 1981. It left a big void in the heart of B-town's favourite star, Sanjay Dutt.
On May 3, 2020, Sanjay took to his Instagram handle and shared an unseen monochrome picture with her. In the picture, we can see Sanjay hugging his mother, Nargis. Alongside it, the superstar wrote an emotional note that can be read as "It’s been 39 years since you left us but I know you’re always by my side. I wish you were here with me, today & every day. Love you and miss you, everyday Mom." Check it out below:
In a 2018 interview with India Today, Sanjay had talked about his mother's illness and how he had to leave his ailing mother at hospital to complete the shoot of his film. The actor had shared, "There was a lot of pressure when my mother fell ill. My movie was on the verge of release, and she was in the coma. There was a lot of pressure. I was very young. I just couldn't understand why I had to leave my mother and do the film." (Also Read: Taimur Ali Khan Gets A Haircut From 'Abba', Saif Ali Khan Amidst Lockdown, Looks Cute As A Button)
In the same interview, Sanjay had opened up about the things he had learned from his mother, Nargis, and had stated, "The most important thing is to be a good human being. Everything else comes after that. I learned from both my father and mother. I'm passing on to my kids. I hope my wife doesn't pamper my children the way my mother did me. My wife tells me if the kids don't hate the parents when they are growing up, there is something wrong in their parenting. I am tough to my children when I want to be tough."
