Ahead of Mother’s Day 2021, here are a few brilliant actresses of Bengal who have nailed their real-life roles of being single mothers to their beloved children!

While being a mother already comes with various challenges, being a single mother to a child can be even tougher. However, some of our favourite Bengali actresses like Swastika Mukherjee, Priyanka Sarkar, Konkona Sensharma have set very inspiring examples with their single motherhood. Not only have these brilliant actresses fulfilled their role of mothers incredibly well, but they have also simultaneously killed it in their professional lives!

Watch the trailer of Swastika Mukherjee’s film Onek Diner Pore here:

1. Swastika Mukherjee

Swastika Mukherjee is a doting mother to a 21-year-old daughter, Anwesha. The Shaheb Bibi Golaam actress welcomed Anwesha into this world, from her marriage to Pramit Sen, which did not end well. While raising little Anwesha to be the elegant young lady that she is now, Swastika succeeded at both, art and commercial films, as an actress. Given the adorable bond that they share, it would be wrong to not call this mother-daughter duo best friends!
