Bollywood celebrates Women's Day



Twitter is a busy world, and Bollywood contributes a great deal to it. Here's looking at the best star tweets of the day.

Bollywood took time out to tweet about the fairer sex on Women's Day.
Bipasha Basu tweeted: Am proud 2 b born as a woman n am happy 2 see tht this day inspires women thruout d world 2 wrk 2wards equality.Happy Women's Day Ladies!! A woman of today can balance her work and personal life beautifully and without a complaint! Celebrate today, everyday! Today marks a celebration of the economic, social, cultural and political achievements made by women over the years.Cheers to all of us!'

Shabana Azmi saluted women for their spirit: 'I salute all those women and men whose struggle over 100 yes has paved the way for women 2 speak language of RIGHTS. Happy Intrnl womens day. Celebrating Womens Day is NOT Tokenism. It is a SYMBOL 2 focus attention on womens fight 4 justice and equality. In sisterhood I salute them.'

Gul Panag had some advice for women: 'To all the women out there- don't settle for anything less than what YOU think you're worth. Be it a man, job, career or a dress. womensday.'

Amitabh Bachchan insisted that every day is Women's Day. 'Every day is 'Womans Day' ... whether she is a national or an international ..!! Why a specific day?'

His son Abhishek had a different opinion: 'Someone asked why is there a women's day and not a men's day? My answer.. Women make sure that the rest of the year is Men's day by celebrating us. So 1 day in a year is the least we can do when it should be the other way round. Happy women's day ladies!'

Ameesha Patel wished the ladies well: 'Happy womens day 2 all the super duper women. Tho I feel everyday is a celebration as being a woman is no ordinary task'

Singer Shreya Ghoshal wanted a holiday: 'Happy Women's Day:):) So why is there no holiday for the women today? Day toh bana diya par uska kuchh privileges toh banta hai na! :P'
