Here’s what Bollywood celebs have to say on Women’s Day


The world is celebrating International Women’s Day today, and on the occasion, Bollywood celebrities too expressed their thoughts, wishes and inspiring messages on social media.

Shah Rukh Khan expressed his gratitude for the womankind in a very unique way. He shared a cute picture of a boy and a girl holding each other hands on Twitter, and captioned it, “Hold her hand so that she can lead you. Happy Women’s Day.” Although, the picture has the back of the two kids towards the camera, the little boy resembles his son AbRam, who is holding the girl’s hand, who appears to be little older than him.

Alia Bhatt launched a special emoticon for Women's Day in a tweet with a nice quote. She wrote, “Launching the #WomensDay emoticon & summing it up with my fav quote, Let her sleep for when she wakes, she will move mountains. G'night.”.  The ‘Dear Zindagi’ actress also retweeted her mother Soni Razdan's initiative in which Bollywood actresses are "uniting to fight back basic human rights. The right to a decent toilet!"

For all that you have done against all odds, Thank you. Happy Women's Day!” The collage has pictures of Smita Patil, Mother Teresa, Madhubala, Kalpana Chawla, Waheeda Rehman and Lata Mangeshkar among others.

Kajol wrote, “Let's build the bloody women's club and be loyal to it all year long! Not just by 1 gesture but by changing our attitudes towards ourselves.” Her husband Ajay Devgn tweeted, “Let's celebrate everyday as #womensday, so we never need only one day!”
