So what if it’s Mother’s Day today, young turks Ranbir Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan celebrate their mothers everyday.

Ranbir Kapoor on Neetu Kapoor
For actor Ranbir Kapoor, Mother’s Day has always been a day he has celebrated with much enthusiasm right from his childhood days. “As a kid, I remember making cards for her and saving pocket money to take her out for a special dinner,” he shares. About his relationship with mom, actor Neetu Kapoor he says, “I always count mom among my closest friends. I can talk to her just about anything under the sun and I know she’ll understand without being judgemental. Of course, she can never stop being a mom.”

The actor feels that moms make so many sacrifices for their kids that ‘We just can’t be grateful enough to them,’ but “today is a day to show them how much they mean to us.” This time around though, Neetu is away in Delhi, so Ranbir might not be able to take her out on dinner, but rest assured he will make up to her when she returns. “Yes, we’ll have a quiet celebration then,” he smiles.
   
Abhishek Bachchan on Jaya Bachchan
Actor Abhishek Bachhan reveals that he’s not the quintessential mamma’s boy, though seeing his mom at home always makes his day. Nor does he believe in celebrating one particular day as Mother’s Day to shower his love on mom, actor Jaya Bachchan, but Abhi does admit that he owes a lot to her. “I don’t think that you need a special day to say how much you love your mom or tell her what she means to you,” shares Abhishek.

But he does add that it’s always good to make her feel special and thank her for everything that she’s done for us. “Well, the fact is that no matter how much you earn, you can never buy her a gift expensive enough that can truly compensate the love that she has for you, but yes, never give up trying,” he says. “They are always givers, while we children are always takers. It’s a good day to reverse roles I guess,” he smiles.
