Mother's Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May each year, and this year it falls on May 12. We don't need a day to celebrate our mothers, but we use this day to express our love, admiration and respect to our moms. On the occasion of International Mother's Day, Bollywood celebrities like Aamir Khan, Alia Bhatt, Karan Johar, Janhvi Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Kartik Aaryan, Kriti Sanon, Kajol, Amitabh Bachchan and many more posted special messages for their mothers.

Actor-filmmaker Aamir Khan posted three pictures with his family members. In one picture, he is seen with his mother Zeenat. "Ammi and me. Best Mom in the world!" he says. In the other photo, Aamir Khan is with his brother Faisal Khan along with their parents Zeenat and Tahir Husain. He has captioned the photo as: "My parents, Faisal and me :-)."

In the third picture, actually shared first, Aamir Khan's parents are seen with his sister Nikhat. "My mom, dad and Nikhat, my elder sister... happy Mother's Day Ammi!" says Aamir. Just three days ago, Aamir Khan had also shared a picture of his with daughter Ira Khan on the occasion of her birthday.

Actress-producer Anushka Sharma posted a childhood picture of hers with her mom, simply saying, "Maa ❤❤", while actor Arjun Kapoor posted a video message as a tribute to not only moms but also single fathers. Arjun lost his mother Mona Kapoor to cancer just before his debut film released. Janhvi Kapoor posted a picture with her mother, the late actress Sridevi and said, "Cherish them, listen to them, give them all the love in the world. Happy Mother's Day".
