While itâs undeniable that women should be celebrated and treated well every day, itâs nice to have a special day for women; especially during trying times like this. Itâs no secret that this country is not a very safe space for women. Yet, we live on and take every day in our stride to become the powerful women we were always destined to be. On March 8th, many Bollywood celebrities echoed that sentiment and took to social media to give fans a glimpse into the lives of their families and close ones. Here is a list of Bollywood celebrities who celebrated International Womenâs Day in the most joyous way possible:

The actress ended her note on a humorous note (as is expected of her), âMay you unhook your bra strap, get into your comfiest pajamas and chill the f*ck out. Love from a happy, exhausted feminist mama bear.â
