Women don’t need a celebration or any validation! That’s what a man needs when he truly understands the power, the impact and the force of a woman! #HappyWomensDay2020

Ladies. If I'm being honest, it seems unfair that we don't have a single dedicated International Men's Day.
It's wrong that we have to deal with 364 of them. #InternationalWomensDay

The happiest women today are not the married ones. They're not the single ones. They're not the ones with stable careers and good incomes. The happiest women are the ones who made a choice to love themselves wholly and truly. Women who chose to leave the past behind, worked on their self-esteem and put a high price tag on their self-esteem. They stopped playing victims. They stopped whining in self-pity and dining in pity parties. They moved past their anger, tears and bitterness. They realized that happiness is a personal choice and responsibility. They chose to be defined by their present, but not their pasts. They are happy because they don't need validation from anyone. They are happy because they know that they don't need to throw shade on anyone for them to shine. They are happy because they chose to be Queens .... Happy Women’s day today n everyday ♥️... such beautiful words
Well, as far as Bollywood industry is considered, it has evolved when it comes to female protagonists. Of course it took years for this change to sit into the trend but now, gladly, audience has a good amount of films that can be flaunted as the women-led films. However, this number has to go up and the makers are well aware of the same. Let us hope that B-town makers make more such beautiful films that we can proudly boast about later!
