As people all over the internet take to the social media platform to celebrate motherhood and their own moms with throwback photos and sweet images, actor Adnan Malik paid the most heart warming tribute to his deceased house help, Nisar, who was just like a mother to him.

Malik uploaded adorable pictures from his childhood, along with an elaborate note, detailing the role she had played in raising him

He started off by saying, “Mother’s Day wouldn’t be complete without acknowledging Nisar my second mother, who I regret not having honoured with the title when she was alive, even though she dedicated her adult life to raising me as her own.”

And Mother’s Day wouldn’t be complete without acknowledging Nisar(o masi)- my second mother, who I regret not having honored with the title when she was alive, even though she dedicated her adult life to raising me as her own🙏🏽 • My roommate for the first 11 years of my life, You were always available for a silly laugh, a safe full-bodied hug, or a pat to sleep. I could just look at you and a knowing smile would break out on my face- you made life that simple. • You dressed me with great panache, taught me all my broken Punjabi, loved all my friends as much as I loved them, and were ALWAYS in my corner no matter what. You even knew all the family secrets, but would hold them with integrity and honor (and often a wry smile) • What I learnt the most from you was how a woman from the village (Fateh Jang) could stand up for herself and not be dependent on a man. I’d love hearing your stories of valor of leaving your husband when he brought a second wife home. You took your 4 kids and raised them independently in your paternal house through your own hard work & money & then came to the city and raised me. You never took shit from anyone & when you weren’t in care of me or my family, you’d be smoking a hookah like a bad ass in the quarters downstairs. • You had all the power, men had nothing on you. • I remember you’d show me how you’d dance at my wedding. “Nachi tharrapi” as you’d say. I will save that dance for you the day I get married 🙏🏽 • And you were mummy’s greatest confidante & best friend. • Thank you for everything. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you, or recall your scent or hear your cackle or honor you for helping shaping me into the person I am ❤️ • I love you, “Gulley Mullay” • #themaliksofhillroad

Malik remembered how she was also his roommate for the first 11 years of his life,

She was there by his side, no matter what. “I could just look at you and a knowing smile would break out on my face – you made life that simple,” added the actor.

He shared how Nisar would dress him “with great panache,” just like a mother does. And helped fixing his broken Punjabi. “You loved all my friends as much as I loved them, and were always in my corner, no matter what. You even knew all the family secrets, but would hold them with integrity and honour (and often a wry smile),” he wrote.

The most important lesson he learnt from Nisar was how a woman from the village (Fateh Jang)  didn’t need the support of any man and fearlessly lived her life. “I’d love hearing your stories of valour, leaving your husband when he brought a second wife home. You took your four kids and raised them independently in your paternal house through your own hard work, money and then came to the city and raised me.”

The Cake star concluded, “You had all the power; men had nothing on you. I remember you’d show me how you’d dance at my wedding. ‘Nachi tharrapi,’ as you’d say. I will save that dance for you the day I get married,” he promised.

“You were also mummy’s greatest confidante and best friend. Thank you for everything. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you, or recall your scent or hear your cackle or honour you for helping shaping me into the person I am. I love you, Gulley Mullay.”
