It would not be wrong to say that sometimes a mother’s love deviates her from her goal. A mother’s love is pure, but a mother knows no boundaries when it comes to loving her children. That’s why mothers often get blind in the love of their children and get away from their fair thinking about their children.
Snehlata Vasaikar playing the role of Gautama Bai in Punyashlok Ahilyabai
Sony Entertainment Television’s show Punyashlok Ahilyabai is an inspiring saga of Ahilyabai Holkar, who in the 18th century challenged the orthodox norms of society and broke the boundaries of gender discrimination and heralded a new era of women empowerment with the help of her father-in-law Malhar Rao Holkar. The way was paved. While the show showcases the wonderful rapport between Ahilyabai and her father-in-law, it also showcases Gautamabai’s (Malhar Rao’s wife) love for her son Khanderao. Like any loving mother, she often overlooks the shortcomings of her son. Interestingly, Snehlata Vasaikar, who plays Gautamabai in the show, connects with her character as she herself is also a mother and has been involved in such difficult situations many times.
Elaborating on this, Snehlata Vasaikar said, “As a mother, I can understand Gautama Bai’s confusion. Sometimes we get so engrossed in the love of our children that often we cannot differentiate between right and wrong. The interesting thing is that being a mother is one thing in common with my character and that helped me understand my character better. Though she is a caring mother, Gautamabai does not lack foresight. They always have a feeling that for the betterment of their child they will have to take some tough decisions which may not seem favorable at that moment. So I understand many things about his personality and in some cases I can connect with his selfless love for my child.”
