How cool are moms?? No, seriously. How much willing they are to spread themselves thin, in order to make sure we get the best. We all have been borne to them, cuddled by them, looked up to them, loved them, hated them and late, very late in our lives do we understand them. Or do we really ever can understand how a mother holds you in her arms for the first part of your life and in her heart for the rest.

On this Mother’s day therefore, we have asked our A-listers about their mothers and how would they pay homage to these super stars we call ‘moms’.

Navin Waqar:

The uber talented artist

The one thing I want to say to my mom is “thank you”. For making me who I am today as a person , as a human being; for being an example of strength and kindness and for loving me unconditionally. I am lucky to have you as a mom and proud to be your daughter.

Nilofer Shahid: 

A couturier par excellence


My mother was full of positive energy. I never, even once heard her complain about life. Her generosity of heart transcended her physical beauty. She was compassionate towards others and giving. Not only in terms of materialistic stuff but her love and affection was for everyone that came across her. She understood the pain people were going through and would empathize with them. Her positivity and caring nature, is something I would want to instill in my own children. If there was one thing that I could say to her now is, Mom, I love you and I wish I would have spent more time with you.

Mariam Khwaja: 

Artisan de beaute’


Thank you for being such an amazing human being ! No matter what amount of success has come my way,you are the woman your I dream of being; loved by everyone for the person you are.
The quality I want my kids to inherit from their grandmother is her strength as a person. I never saw her show a moment of weakness all my life. For me, this is the most wonderful trait and  I can’t applaud that enough.

Taufiq Hussain: 

Bringing fantasy to life

“Mom, you are my universe”, the message was simple and heartfelt from Taufiq Hussain, a designer whose unique motifs have garnered accolades from all around during his 14 year long career.

Mehreen Syed: 

CEO IFAP and the Runway Superstar

My mother’s loving and caring nature and her sense of responsibility is what I admire the most. She has been the biggest strength for me during my entire career. Her positivity is what sustained me during the challenging times in my life and her message to me always was simple. Look for the silver lining in every cloud. This is what I attribute my success in life to. If there is one thing that I want my Aman to have from my mother, it’s her love and affection; not only when she grows up and becomes a mother herself but also as a person and as a human being, I wish her to have these qualities. One thing that I wish I could say to her is, I wish I would have understood your love and protectiveness for me earlier. 

So, let’s celebrate the women we call Mothers, not only today, but every day, for the rest of our lives.
