You are a caring daughter, you are a passionate lover, you are a perfect homemaker, and you are a perfect mother. Continue to celebrate Women's Day month like us and be proud to be the true instance of strength and unconditional love.

BollyCurry has brought to you various interesting topics this March, but this time we would like to bring up a rather sensitive yet thought-provoking issue that literally created waves across India and then the world - the Delhi gang-rape case. A matter that sent chills down our spines and lead us to rethink the moment when we were born as a woman. Why? Why are we independent, yet dependent?
As average civilians, we have our limitations, but we are lucky to have some really frank yet optimistic celebs who poured out their reactions through the medium of Twitter. BollyCurry takes a look at a few celebrity tweets on this issue.

Amitabh Bachchan: "Wanted to say so much of the day'.but so disturbed by the gang rape case in Delhi'..atrocious and unforgivable!!"

Shah Rukh Khan: "I am so sorry that I am a man. I promise I will fight with your voice. I will respect women so that I gain my daughter's respect."

Juhi Chawla"Read the newspapers this morning & I wish I hadn't. Read the heart rending, shocking & saddening news about the gang-rape on a Delhi bus! My heart goes out to the little girl & her family. I hope those men are found & publicly punished for this heinous act"

Farhan Akhtar"Yes we can stoop lower as a people. The Delhi bus gang-rape is proof of that. Is justice asleep? i believe swift and severe punishment is the only deterrent. The deviants are not afraid of the consequences as it comes too little too late."

Akshay Kumar: "Make self-defense compulsory in the school curriculum. It's not a solution but a start. Wat happened is nt acceptable! Let's nt 4get, we owe her that much. if we can't get men 2 behave, it's time women take things in their own hands."

Abhishek Bachchan"I have always been a very proud Indian. Today, we should ALL be ashamed. Will it always take an innocents death for a nation to awake? This is not the country I grew up in as a child, this is not the country I want my daughter to know whilst she grows up!"

Ayesha Takia"Traumatic, watching news of traumatic news of brutal gang rape in delhi!!! This is truly becoming an epidemic in this country, SHAMEFUL!"

Shreya Ghoshal"Women are d most disrespected in our country. N it's such a deep rooted issue. It's in our culture for d sons to display power n dominance."

Karan Johar: "I truly hope the nations anger against the #delhigangrape is channelised and not deflected by election reportage!!!"

Anurag Kashyap"We need to stop objectifying our women in what we call our second religion; our films and our TV Shows"

It gives BollyCurry immense pleasure to have shared the fact that our endearing celebrities are absolutely against such heart-wrenching tragedies happening in not only India, but all around the globe. Their words speak their thoughts towards such sensitive issues and this shows their true value and respect towards women. We admire you for not only entertaining us but also spreading healthy messages using the power of your popularity.

i don't think blaming chamak challo , munni badnam hui n shela ki jawani will help coz apart from this their r many good things also show i never saw any boddy copying that ... then ...?

it's shitty v indian hav a very bad habit of putting the blame on some one ... apart from this their r many wrong things done n in some or the other way v r also a part of it ...

Fighting for women's rights...then go on to make "chamak challo," "munni badnam hui," " and "sheila ki jawani." Yeah, hard to see your concern, Bollywood people. Spare us the hypocrisy.

All of the comments are terrific but I do agree with Shreya and Anurag the most! She's right about how it's ingrained in our culture that men show and maintain their dominance over women and Anurag is absolutely right in saying that women need to stop being objectified in TV shows and films. TV shows and films often give a pathetic picture of what a woman is or what it means to be a woman, especially with the TV serials that show mostly the lead heroines being subjected to all kinds of torture and bearing it all. Where are all the portrayals of strong women, without making a mockery of women and feminism? Ekta Kapoor had said in an article once that she shows strong women in her shows. What BS! When Ekta? If anything, she has successfully showed viewers her skewed vision of feminist power.
