Women’s Day is a much-needed reminder to ladies across the globe, especially in a patriarchal country like ours. While many still believe that women need to do what’s told to them, there many, many more women out there to prove otherwise. ‘Today’s girl’, as they are called, are bigger and sharper than the ideas that try to contain them. And to such girls and ladies, we take a bow and clap our hands! On the occasion of 42nd International Women’s Day, here are some ladies, the ones we see often on TV, who represent that ‘Today’s girl’ cannot be contained inside the kitchen.
We start our list with the ever-glowing and highly-energetic Samantha Akkineni. Her choice of roles in films has been extremely off-beat and interesting, lately. Having started from scratch, she is now the best of the lot. Apart from acting, Samantha is also highly involved in social service, and is soon to become a producer. While managing it all, and belonging to the first families of Tollywood, Samantha is also a mother to Hash, her four-legged love. Yet, everything seems to be only driving her ahead.
