Who are the best aunties of Bollywood?

Answer by Raakhee V. Menon:

There could be two ways of answering this question…

  • Best actresses who have done the role of aunties in Bollywood movies
  • Real life aunts who dote over their actor/actress sibling’s kids, or vice versa

There are plenty of examples from both categories.

Some of my favorite actresses who have already played or would totally rock the role of very loving aunties…

Himani Shivpuri

Reema Lagoo 😦

Tanvi Azmi

Farida Jalal

Shabana Azmi

Dimple Kapadia


Nafisa Ali

Jaya Bachchan

Kirron Kher

Ratna Pathak Shah

As for real life aunties, what with the entry of social media, you get to see plenty of Bollywood aunties posing with their little nephews and nieces all the time. Here’s to all the doting maasis and buas of Bollywood…

Kareena Kapoor-Khan with sister Karisma’s children, Samaira and Kiaan

Shamita Shetty with sister Shilpa Shetty’s son, Viaan

Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan with brother Aditya Rai’s son, Vihaan.
