In the caption, she wrote, “My Dearest Amma, I did this film ONLY & ONLY for you! I’ve said this before and il say it again…
We walk away with all the credit and glory but the sacrifice of a spouse and his or her family always goes unnoticed!
My little contribution to #83thefilm is to recognize and acknowledge every homemaker who puts the dreams of her spouse, her children, and her family ahead of her own…🙏🏽
