Today on International Women’s Day 2017 various celebrities came forward to wish the women around the world for their importance, influence and impact on society and everyone’s life. Offices have organized fun events to commemorate the day for their women staff and everyone is being wished a very Happy Women’s Day. This year the theme for International Women’s Day is Be Bold for Change and it calls for women to be bold in their life, not take injustice lying down and be assertive.

Kapil Sharma, Deepika Padukone, Sunny Leone and Sunil Grover also took the opportunity to wish women on their special day.
Virat Kohli took to Instagram to wish every woman out there but his special wish for his mother and girlfriend Anushka Sharma for “fighting against the odds”. His post read, “Happy women’s day to every woman out there, but especially to the two strongest women in my life. My mom for looking after the family in toughest times in life and @anushkasharma for fighting against the odds regularly and standing up for righteousness and changing the norms #happywomenday ”. Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is in Uttar Pradesh campaigning for Bharatiya Janata Party prior to state elections wished, “Saluting the indomitable spirit, determination & dedication of Nari Shakti on International Women’s Day.” International Women’s Day 2017: Sudarsan Pattnaik pays tribute to womanhood at Bahrain beach and also urges everyone to respect women
Check out some of the tweets from celebs:
Sunil Grover also took to twitter to wish women on this special day. However, he could not keep away from mentioning his popular characters Gutthi and Rinkoo Bhabhi from The Kapil Sharma Show.
On the other hand when the entire world is celebrating womanhood, film director Ram Gopal Varma earned women’s ire with his sexist and misogynistic tweets on International Women’s Day and Sunny Leone. We’re sure many women will give his upcoming movie Sarkar 3 a miss following his tweets. He tweeted, “I wish all the women in the world give men as much happiness as Sunny Leone gives”. Ram Gopal Varma’s tweet on International Women’s Day 2017 insults Sunny Leone and all women!
Sunny Leone gave a fitting reply to the sexist filmmaker. Hopefully that will shut him up about giving derogatory remarks about women.
