Singers Faisal Kapadia, Azaan Sami Khan, actors Maya Ali, Mawra Hocane, as well as tennis player Sania Mirza and sports presenter Zainab Abbas all took to social media to share their love for their mums, posting throwback photographs as well as sweet notes of appreciation.
Faisal posted a black and white photo of him and his mother from back when he was a child, with his mother clad in a saari.

Maya shared a touching note along with a picture of her and her mother. She wrote, “Meri pyari Amma, I know this day isn’t enough to be thankful to you for every little thing which you have done for your children. Whoever I am and wherever I am it’s only because of you and your sacrifices of your dreams. No one, literally no one can take the place of a mother. May you always stay with us like this forever, Ameen. I wish I can become even a little like you. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there. Maa to maa hoti hai.”
Similarly, Sania celebrated her mother, posting an adorable photograph of the two along with the tennis player’s infant.
