Talking about the things that she learnt from her mother, Anjum revealed, “Over the past few years, my mom and I have grown very close. She is my best friend and confidante and I share everything with her. She is my go-to person. One life lesson by my mother that is etched on my mind and has become a part of my personality is when she told me to never lie. My mother has always encouraged us to speak and stand for the truth. She has instilled the value of speaking the truth and standing up against the wrong in us and that value has stayed with us since our childhood. It helps me stay true to my craft too and be a good and trust-worthy person and I can’t thank my mom enough for it.”
Anjum also spoke about how her mom went the extra mile for her, as she added, “One memory that I have of my mother is of her putting in the efforts to make sure that we have a good education. Although she studied in an Urdu medium school, she studied English, Hindi and Marathi to ensure that she can teach us, and we get the best possible education and become independent. She has been a strong support system for us all. This Mother’s Day I would like to thank my mom for all that she has done and all that she does for us selflessly. Today we are what we are because of the values she has instilled in us. Her efforts and love have made us stronger and independent. Thank you Mom for taking that leap of faith and the unwavering support.”
Apart from life and studies, the actress credits her mother for teaching her some amazing and mouth watering recipes, “My Mom has also taught me how to cook some amazing dishes. Every year on Eid, she used to make a whole range of mouthwatering dishes and I used to be her sous chef. She taught me how to make delicacies like Saatpadri, Saandan, Patola, Bhanori, Dhuderi and Sakroli. In fact, she also made me learn how to give these dishes a healthy twist as well. We also used to dress up and spend time together with the family. She’s instilled a lot of values in me and I’d really love to thank her for making me what I am today.”
