On the occasion of International Women’s Day on Sunday, Bollywood stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Karan Johar and Sonakshi Sinha have urged the society to treat women as equals throughout the year and not just assign them one day of the year.
Here’s what the stars have tweeted:
Amitabh Bachchan: ‘Woman’s Day’ .. ?? A single day dedicated to women? But a woman dedicates every day of her life!!!
Lata Mangeshkar: ANTAR-RASHTRIYA MAHILA DIWAS ke Avasar par aap sab ko bohot shubhkaamanaayein. Humare desh me aurat ko Durga Devi ka roop samjha jaata hai, usi se prerana lekar aap sab jeevan me aanewale har sankat ka himmat se samana karein aur jeevan hamesha aage badhe yehi meri aap se apeksha hai. (My well wishes to everyone on the occasion of International Women’s Day. In our country, women are considered as the face of Goddess Durga. Taking inspiration from it, I wish all of you tackle all the hurdles in life with strength and move on).
Karan Johar: Women don’t need a day to celebrate their power and strength! Men on the other hand just need a tight slap!!! And all will be well.
