Ramayana’s Sita and Mahabharata’s Draupadi showed us women are unstoppable forces of nature. Through their bravery and self-discipline, these women paved their own way in stories told by the Hindu mythology. If that wasn’t enough, the female-centric roles from Mukta Barve in Bandishala to Sridevi in MOM, displayed that woman is full of beautiful contradictions and power.

Taking a page from their book, with Daughter’s Day around the corner, we need to celebrate the superwomen in our real life. So, the next time a mother and father don’t hesitate to have a girl child, much rather, celebrate her birth with fervour.

Known for camouflaging herself in the characters she plays, Sonali Kulkarni gave yet another applauded performance in Gulabjaam opposite chocolate boy, Siddharth Chandekar. She essays the role of a reticent woman whose love for cooking is explored after she meets Siddharth’s character. You have to watch the movie to see her journey from a shy woman to a successful entrepreneur.
