Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui who has swept us away time and again with his acting prowess, proving that a fair complexion and stereotypical good looks are not necessary for success in the filmy world, was a typical son as he shared his pride on his mother Mehroonisa Siddiqui being featured on the BBC's 100 Most Influential Women List.

Sharing his happiness on his mother being featured on the esteemed list, Nawazuddin tweeted "A lady who showed courage against all odds being in a conservative family from a small village-My Mother."

Along with the tweet, Nawaz shared a vintage style picture of himself with his mother.

Apart from Mehroonisa Siddiqui, other famous women on the BBC's 100 most influential women list of 2017 include Mithali Raj the Indian women's cricket team captain, social entrepreneur Dr. Urvashi Sahni and business analyst Nitya Thummalachetty.
