As the world celebrates Mother's Day, celebrities took to social media to share their feelings for their superheroes. Penning heartfelt messages for their mums, artists share never seen before pictures.
Singer Hadiqa Kiani took to Instagram and wrote, "Piyari ama. Grateful for every day with my incredible mother.

Sports anchor Zainab Abbas shared a picture with her mother and wrote how grateful is she for her.

Meesha Shafi took to Twitter and posted pictures of her mother, veteran actor Saba Hamid. "Happy Mother’s Day Ma," the former Overload singer penned, adding, "Although you are celebrated every single day as a mother to so many on-screen, Faris and I are blessed to have you all to ourselves in real life."

Iqra Aziz wrote, "From a very khaas mother to an even more khaas Grandmother-to-be, words aren’t enough to express how blessed I am to have you. I can’t wait for the little one to have you as their guardian angel and for you to shower the same laad pyar that my Naani spoiled me with. So lucky to have you hold my hand through it all. Happy Mother’s Day Maa!"
While some celebrities shared their love for their mothers, others shared how their children showered love on them. Veteran actor Atiqa Odho posted a picture of a beautiful bouquet and wrote, "My daughter gave me a beautiful hand-made flower basket with real baby pink roses for Mother's Day. So so beautiful. Along with the thoughtful gift came a card with a few but very meaningful words that touched my heart and made my year! I'm so blessed to have beautiful, caring children. Thank you, Allah. May they always stay safe, healthy and happy."
Aisha Malik, too, shared a picture with her daughter and penned, "I got you!"
Not just Pakistani celebs, many Indian stars took to social media as well and expressed their love for their mothers.
Soha Ali Khan posted a picture with her mother, veteran Sharmila Tagore and wrote, "Never taking a cuddle for granted again! Happy Mother's Day to my lovely Amman and to all the other fabulous mothers (including myself) who do the most important job in the world every single day."
Sharing a throwback picture with her mom, actor Madhuri Dixit Nene said, "I have learnt so much from aai and I continue to do so every single day."
Farhan Akhtar posted a picture of his mom and Zoya Akhtar and wrote, "Happy Mother's Day."
Posting a picture with her mom, Babita, and sister Kareena Kapoor Khan, actor Karisma Kapoor wrote, "The strongest mamas I know. Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mother's out there."
Preity Zinta also posted a picture with her mom and shared, "Happiness is seeing your mother smile Happy Mother's Day to meri ma and the center of my universe. Thank you for being my moral compass, my strength and all things nice inside of me. Love you to the moon and back."
Shahid Kapoor wrote a detailed note for mother Neelima Azeem. "Happy Mother’s Day. She is always the wind beneath our wings. Her gaze is loving and forgiving and always sees us as the best version of ourselves. She has nurtured us with so much love that we are capable of passing it on and spreading it into the world. Being the older one by almost 14 years my bond with mom has been very unique, like a friend. And our journey has been beyond words. There is no one who can be you mom," the Kabir Singh star penned.
"On this day, let’s recognise that Mother earth is our mother too. And we haven’t been the nicest kids to her. She is damaged and depleted by us. She needs healing. She needs us to heal her. For the future of our kids. Let’s leave them a healthy happy home. Not what we have done to it. We are the generation that needs to be the change," he concluded.
