These 4 supportive celeb in-laws show us how to keep your bahu happy

Here’s looking at some other supportive parents-in-law in tinsel town.

Recently, Sharmila Tagore set a new trend in saas-bahu relationships by making a profoundly supportive statement about her daughter-in-law.

Sharmila said: “As a mother-in-law, I will tell my son that he belongs to his wife. I may be his mother but she is going to be his lifetime partner.”

Sharmila won numerous hearts when she showed her large-heartedness not only in giving her daughter-in-law her rightful place and respect she deserves in her new household but also did not shy away from expressing her gratitude.

She further added, “After all she left her mother and father for my son. I should return the gesture.  And it is the right thing to do for my son and his wife who is my daughter from another mother’s womb.”

Sharmila’s selfless feelings make us all feel so happy for new mum Kareena Kapoor Khan as it comes at a time when Kareena may need all the love and support of her husband. The remarks also set a new benchmark on daughter-in-law and parents-in-law relationships.

If all the in-laws were to think so gracefully then it would be relationship heaven on earth. So full marks to Sharmila Tagore for leading the way and inspiring millions of others like her.

Here’s looking at some other supportive parents-in-law in tinsel town.

1.The doting FIL: Amitabh Bachchan

He has been one of the most vocal supporters of his bahu Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and is often the first one to post about Ash’s achievements and applaud her.

Amitabh has always been supportive of his bahurani Aishwarya Rai.

Whether it is her fashionable Cannes appearances or her performances he is always posting messages to publicly encourage her. He even posted a sweet message for his “bahurani” and “rani” on Twitter:

But what really shows his truly loving side is that when recently Aish’s father passed philosophically explaining the concept of death and mourning. His concern showed that he was as shaken by the loss and although grieving was standing to support his daughter-in-law during the most difficult time of her life.

He shows us that standing tall through happiness and in grief and sending love and wishes is what makes for a truly inspiring bond.

2. The gracious FIL: Pankaj Kapur

Another lucky girl in celeb town is Shahid Kapur’s wife Mira Rajput. While Mira herself admitted on Koffee with Karan that her in-laws make her feel totally at ease and when she’s with them she feels as if she is with her own parents, dad-in-law Pankaj Kapur showed his magnanimity by once stating that Mira has brought the Kapur family closer together.

It takes for a truly big-hearted man to admit that the entry of a new member in the family further strengthens the family unit. Kapur has also in the past praised Mira and said that she is very beautiful. With FILs like these starting a new life can really be a breeze in the new household.

3. The encouraging mother-in-law: Pamela Chopra

Rani Mukerji post her marriage to Aditya Chopra prefers keeping a low profile on what life is like in the Chopra household. But Bollywood insiders claim that Rani gets along really well with her mum-in-law Pamela Chopra.

Rani Mukerji has a loving relationship with mother-in-law Pamela Chopra.

Once in an interview Pamela Chopra even said that Rani has changed her son Aditya for better. Now, how many MILs really give the credit to their bahus when its due?

4. The friendly mother-in-law: Vaishali Deshmukh

Genelia D’Souza’s entry into the Deshmukh clan was a much talked about affair. After all here was tis spunky Goan girl getting married into a political family with both clout and protocols, however, Genelia took into her new role like fish to water and we guess the credit goes to her MIL too. The saas-bahu duo is often spotted for regional film screenings.

Maybe they share the common interest in regional cinema but the fact that they bond like buddies during movie dates really says something about the chilled out vibes in the family.

Genelia is also the one who returns the love in equal proportion as she posted a picture on social media on Mother’s Day thanking both her Mama and Aai. She also wrote how she loves and worships both the mothers in her life.
