Ahead of Mother's Day 2023, the Jubilee actor speaks about a special trip that he took with his mother that "was an extremely emotional" one
Actor Aparshakti Khurana, who is basking in the success of Vikramaditya Motwane's latest web series Jubilee, reveals that even today, his mother scolds him.
Excerpts from a special conversation that we had with the actor ahead of Mother's Day 2023...
What is your relationship with your mother? Does she still scold you?
She always scolds me for not getting eight hours of sleep. This has been the case ever since I was a child. My mother keeps asking me why I don’t sleep properly.
So what is your favourite maa ke haath ka khana?
Oh, the list is endless. But if I had to, I would pick Besan ki Sabzi. I also love the Laal Mirch Ke Paratha that she makes.
What is the one quality you wish you had in your mother?
The one quality that I have already inherited from my mother is being content and satisfied with what I have in every situation. This has been my strength. I have been trying to become like my mom since I was 25 or 26. Since then, my life has been smooth sailing. Even before becoming an actor, I was content and satisfied with my life. Being content doesn’t mean being complacent. That is something I learned from my mother. And like my mother, I am also a multitasker.
What film of yours does your mother love the most?
I think for any mother, her child always does the right thing. I can’t pick one film, and she also can’t. I specifically called her to ask her this. She says that she likes everything that I do.
Has there been any surprise that you have given your mother that has made her emotional?
My mother was born in Myanmar, and she has not visited her birthplace for almost 60 years. Just before the COVID-19 pandemic, I took her and my mausi to visit the house where they were born. That trip was an extremely emotional one.
