In an actor’s career and craft, a co-actor’s contribution plays an integral role. We all have our favourite on-screen romantic pairings, such as Mahira Khan and Fawad Khan. However, there are unromantic on-screen collaborations which work with the audiences in a big way.
Mother-son equation is the most sensitive and purest form of love and affection. We have many such talented actors who depict the nuances of these relations with utmost honesty and compassion.
We have picked the best reel mother-son duos who have earned a special place in the hearts of the viewers.
Imran Ashraf and Asma Abbas
Ranjha Ranjha Kardi is amongst 2019’s most loved and acclaimed dramas. It has now become a rage due to Imran Ashraf’s acting performance and his dialogues, beautifully penned by the scriptwriter, Faiza Iftikhar. One of the major reasons that this drama is a rating success is because of the camaraderie that Imran’s character Bhola shares with his Amma (Fehmida).
Asma Abbas, the veteran actress has performed her role with the utmost sensitivity, showcasing a mother’s role, dealing with the societal peripheries as her son is dealing with Autism. Asma makes us relate to the pain of a mother and her undying love for her imperfect yet adorable son, Bhola.
In a scene from the drama, the duo shares a sequence where Bhola breaks down in the arms of his mother and amma embraces him and tries to hide her vulnerability. The chemistry between these two fine actors is unmatchable.
Bilal Abbas Khan and Samina Peerzada
Both Samina and Bilal are acclaimed actors, known for their intense portrayal of characters. The duo has shared screen-space in multiple dramas, their last outing together being Balaa. They both manage to perform differently every time they are in a different serial. The monotony is never a problem with these two.
In Balaa, Samina and Bilal share some terrific scenes together as Shama & Taimoor. One of the major highlights of Balaa was the emotional cord between Shama and Taimoor’s characters.
Bushra Ansari and Asad Siddiqui
Who can forget Saima Chaudhary and Vicky’s nok jhok from the series Kis Ki Ayegi Baraat? The series which spanned over four seasons is still remembered for the comic scenes between Bushra & Asad’s characters.
She slaps him, scolds him, dominates him but just loves him more than anyone. Bushra depicts a possessive mother who wants her son to get settled with a good partner. They also dance in the drama together and that just makes their duo as adorable as it can get.
Osman Khalid Butt and Hina Khawaja Bayat
Osman debuted in the television industry with Geo TV’s Aik Nayi Cinderella, Hina Bayat was his first on-screen mother. Both Hina and Osman looked like real mother due to their authentic portrayal and similar facial features, They also reprised their amazing camaraderie in Auun Zara and the audiences couldn’t help but fall in love with their equation and characters together. The duo has also shared screen space in Maya Ali and Hareem Farooq starrer Sanam. Although the audiences missed them playing mother and son in the play.
