Fans have been waiting for Amrita and Dev's love tale since they saw Deepika Padukone as Ranbir Kapoor's mother in Brahmastra thanks to the OTT release. While Deepika is brave to play Ranbir's onscreen mother, Alia plays his lover.
Deepika Padukone began her career with Shah Rukh Khan in Om Shanti Om and soon after shot her second film with Ranbir, whom she was also dating. They worked together in Bachna Ae Haseeno, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, and Tamasha, but the equations have shifted in Brahmastra.
This isn't the first time in movie history that an actress has played a lover and a mother. Look at the list of women who have played the mother and lover of the same actor in various films.
Nargis Dutt, who married Sunil Dutt in real life, played his mother in Mother India and was his heroine in numerous films.
Sridevi was Rajnikanth's lover in Chaalbaaz, but her first job was as the actor's mother in the south film Moonduru Mudichu when she was just 13 years old.

In Viruddh, Sharmila Tagore played Amitabh Bachchan's wife. However, in the 1970s, she played his mother in Desh Premee.
