BTown’s Newbies share their intriguing messages for all the women out there this Women’s Day,
Pyaar Ka Punchanama Girl, Ishita Raj says, “It’s a blessing to be a woman. A woman has known less for the sacrifices she makes and the courage she equips. So let us not make anyone direct us to what we ought to do and let’s just celebrate being US. Shine and Rise!”
Love Aaj Kal 2’s Crush, Pranati Rai Prakash has the cutest message ever, “Dear Women, Be yourself- fiercely and unapologetically. Live free, give yourself the freedom and liberty, enjoy every moment. Make all your dreams come true. I think Women are amazing just the way they are”.
“83” Debutant, Aditi Arya is a youth icon, “A Very Happy Women’s Day to all of you, in the last few years, we women have achieved so much, broken so many glass ceilings had the kind of opportunities which only women in past could dream of. There is soo much of the work to be done and it will take a team. This Women’s Day, I want all of us girls to empower each other, to take a stand, cut out the absurd comments and just be there for each other”
Mirzapur’s Zarina, Anagsha Biswas’s golden words are here to stay, “Women let’s start this Women’s day by Reshaping our Views Opinions and Judgements about other women. Let’s be kind good and fair to our own gender. Let’s give hypocrisy & jealousy a miss this time around.”
Kartik Purnima’s Lead, Poulomi Das is a sheer woman of substance, “I want to wish all of us Happy International Women’s Day, Today we are everywhere where we wanted to be, doing everything we wanted to do. We were given this life because we are smart, strong and brave to live it. We know how to achieve our dreams, but in India as well as a lot of developing countries many women are not where they need to be. Education is the most important thing for us and secondly, our families support. It is my request that, Educate your girls, Support their dreams, talk to them more often. Women have the power to lead the Country. This Women’s Day let us support equality!”
Yeh Rishte hai Pyaar ke’s Nidhi Mami aka Sangeeta Kapure is as adorable as on-screen, “Happy Women’s Day to all the beautiful women, without you the whole world is incomplete, you make this world a better place to like, thank you soo much for bringing art and life to us.”
Radha Krishna’s Devaki, Falaq Naaz believes in making everyday special, “I believe every day is Women’s Day, we don’t need a specific day to celebrate it. We are in the 21st Century, where women are equally on the floor with men, there shouldn’t be any sort of discrimination for them. Support their dreams and see how they fly.”
Krishna and his Leela starrer Seerat Kapoor says, “Women should be two things: who and what she wants. Never bend your head, always hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye.”
These riveting experiences surely mark the Gap in Gender Equality and changes in these 25 years of Women Empowerment.
