Today, the world is celebrating International Women's Day 2020. Although we should be celebrating women, god's most beautiful creature every day, we can surely begin by making this day special for all the lovely ladies around us.
Bollywood has, over the years, given us some powerful and opinionated female roles. Maybe not as many as we would like to believe, but as our cinema progress, our actresses turn from mere side props to leading actors. Movies like Thappad, Mardaani, Raazi to name few have portrayed women in strong roles.
Be it the role of a wife, a mother, a lover or a villain, actresses know how to play the chords in tune for each and every character. Gone are the days when female protagonists were used to be in the movie as mere eye candies. Heroins now can play the role of a fierce cop to badass lawyers, mafias and corporate rulers.
Over the ages, dialogues such as, 'Mai apni favourite hoon - Geet (Kareena Kapoor Khan), Jab we met' to 'Pyaar mein junoon hai par dosti mein sukoon hai. - Alizeh (Anushka Sharma), Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' and 'Yaadein mithai ke dibbe ki tarah hoti hain, ek baar khule toh sirf ek tukda nahi kha paoge. - Naina (Deepika Padukone), Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani', have ruled over the hearts of millions of fans.
