Before Kirron Kher, Farida Jalal and Rakhee, there was Nirupa Roy; the quintessential Bollywood mom. Parampara, pratishta, anushashan; these aren't just the rules of Amitabh Bachchan's Gurukul in Mohabbatein, these were also the virtues Nirupa Roy lived by.

However, in a career spanning more than 50 years, Nirupa Roy often played a mother wronged by the cruel society. Don't believe us? Well, allow these memes to refresh your memory.

Don't get us wrong guys. We love Nirupa Roy as much as you do.
