Women’s Day quotes from Zee TV's popular actresses

 Urvashi Dholakia (Malini Yadav of Apno Ke Liye Geeta Ka Dharmyudh)
I’m proud to be a woman. Every day is a Women’s Day in my life. I don’t need a special day to celebrate it. But I would like to say that in today’s world, it’s very important for her to be financially independent. Success hasn’t come easily to me. I have toiled hard to find a foothold in the entertainment industry. Personally, I feel that you come in the world alone and you go from the world alone. You have one life. Live it to the fullest. I have lived my life on my own terms and conditions and I’m very proud of whatever I have achieved today.

Pragati Mehra (Maheshwari of Chhoti Bahu)
Ideally speaking, I have a disconnect with ONLY one day marked for women as ‘Women’s Day’. Because in today’s day and age, women are at par with men in all spheres of life and across all strata’s of the society. At times I feel it’s an added advantage that above all women are intrinsically a nurturer too which men have to develop. So if there isn’t a ‘Men’s Day’, there should not be a women’s day either…all days are ours for keeps!!! But having said that if by announcing a day we women are showered with special privileges its welcome and I enjoy that!! But on a larger scale , as a society if we can see the change that women are respected in real sense of the word, given their due, equal platform without prejudice and contempt …that’s a celebration…that’s a real WOMEN’S Day!!! On a happy note, I do see things moving in that direction.

Rubina Dilaik (Radhika of Chhoti Bahu)

The most significant woman in my life is my mother. It’s very overwhelming to see the gleam in my mother’s eyes whenever she talks about my achievements. Success hasn’t come easily to me. I have given my sweat and blood to enhance my performance as an actress. For me success is not a stage, it’s a process. Being a woman I feel financial empowerment is a must. It not only boosts your confidence but also gives one clear vision to choose options in their lives. I feel very proud about the fact that at such an young age, I’m able to shoulder the responsibilities of my family along with my father. My heartfelt gratitude to everyone because of whom I’ve achieved success and have seen some really favorable times in my life. On Women’s Day, I take this opportunity to thank everyone!

Vandana Joshi (Nandini of Dil Se Diya Vachan)
I strongly feel that we don’t need just one particular day to celebrate the joys of being a woman. But I have to say that I feel extremely proud to be a woman. I’m very happy about the fact that I’m financially empowered and I’m not dependent on anyone for anything. Success hasn’t come to me easily. I have slogged hard for it and today I feel that my hard work has paid off! There are so many opportunities in front of me and I can do whatever I want. I feel struggle is very important in one’s life. Its only after you have toiled hard that you enjoy the fruits of success. I have earned everything on my own. My parents were averse to the idea of me dancing when I participated in DID. They were also not in favor of me pursuing acting when I got Dil Se Diya Vachan. But the fact that I have proved myself has made them change their perspectives. Today my family supports me in everything that I do and I’m glad of the choices that I made in life. On woman’s Day, I would like to tell all the women – go and live your dreams!

Jayshree T (Jayshree Karmarkar of Dil Se Diya Vachan)
Earlier women were only considered to be a daughter, sister, wife and mother. Today, times have changed and women are at par with men in every sphere. Women are PM’s, President’s, Actors, Sports personalities, CEO’s, Train drivers, Auto rickshaw drivers, you name it and you have women as achievers in every field. It’s a great thing that women have become so dynamic and go-getters in life. But all said and done, they must not forget that are sisters, mothers, wives and daughter as well and they should have the ability to juggle both their personal as well as professional lives with élan. This is my message to all the women on Women’s Day.

Zarina Wahab
Women empowerment has come a long way from the days when the purdah system was prevalent in society. Television shows are women centric and a lot of them are focusing on current malpractices in the society with the aim of educating women helping them stand for their rights and fight for a cause. There is trend of positivity as far as women liberation or empowerment is concerned. Awareness is the biggest agent of change and awareness in the right direction can help achieve the desired result.

Sargun Mehta (Geeta of Apno Ke Liye Geeta Ka Dharmyudh)

A woman is the epitome of tenderness, care and wisdom. On this Women's Day, I would like to wish every woman a very Happy Women’s Day. My message to everyone is — Have a wonderful time out with your gal pals, and enjoy the company of your women friends. And while you do so, spare a thought for unfortunate women, who live in tyrannical societies where men override...

Nivedita Tiwary (Runjhun of Bhagonwaali)

Charles Malik said,The fastest way to change society is to mobilise the women of the world." So very true! If I have my way then I would like to celebrate the spirit of womanhood by spending the day with myself doing things I love to do – read books all day long, step out for a warm cup of coffee and then snuggle up early in bed and sleep like a baby. Spending a day alone will help me introspect and give me a sense of freedom to do my own thing.

Rita Bhaduri (Naani of Bhangonwaali)
When I look back and reflect on the change in women’s liberation in the last few decades, I find there has been a remarkable change. A lot has been written about the new face Indian woman and her new found spirit of womanhood but I am still concerned about the hoards of homemakers around the country who work relentlessly for the betterment of her family but at the end of the day retire without an iota of appreciation in her kitty. Housewives across the globe should be respected. Men should either cook one meal or take the homemaker out on a date or do anything that will make the woman of the house feel special.

Ankita Lokhande (Archana of Pavitra Rishta)

Ofcourse it is a really nice thing that we have Women’s Day; one day when you can unashamedly revel in every aspect of your femininity! And what makes better is that on this day, no one will dare disagree with you either! This year I am sure that I will be celebrating in some way or another especially since I know that Sushant will plan something (he loves giving me surprises!)

Savita Prabhune (Sulochana of Pavitra Rishta)

Women’s day marks a celebration of the emancipation of women from the bondage of social evils. Especially given the social background of women’s rights in our country, I feel proud to be a part of this graceful gender which though underestimated at times, has contributed in a huge way to our society. Ofcourse this doesn’t mean that the day has to be all serious and somber. I will take some time out to tell my closest.

Usha Nadkarni (Savita tai of Pavitra Rishta)

I have not celebrated Women’s Day till now and how do I? I am shooting for most of my waking hours?! But I am sure that a lot of the other’s on the show do. I have heard that it is a day when all women indulge themselves in pampering at spas and parlours etc. But I don’t think that is the only way in which one can celebrate being a woman. I salute all women who make a positive difference to society and work for the betterment of others.

Ashlesha Sawant (Urmila of Dil Se Diya Vachan)

I think I will plan something with all of my closest female friends and family members. If I get the day off, nothing like it for sure! Then I can treat my family to some quality spa time while it will be a celebration over lunch or dinner with my friends! Nothing quite like a girls day out… (smiles).

Veebha Anand (Laxmi of Sanskaar Laxmi)
I have never really celebrated Women’s Day. The only woman who comes to mind on this day is my mother. Her dedication towards our home and family is one to learn from. She has always supported me and my siblings in all we do. She has encouraged me every step of the way towards the realisation of my dream of being an actress!
