Celebs wish everyone a happy Women’s Day | The Express Tribune
On March 8, many celebrities took to their social media to honour women and wish everyone a happy International Women’s Day! From actor Yasir Hussain praising his wife Iqra Aziz to actor-cum-host Reema Khan encouraging women to celebrate their womanhood, the stars were at the top of their spirits on this special day.
Taking to Instagram, Reema posted a video to relay her sentiments about womanhood. “The creator is Allah, but the source of creation is woman,” she began, “On this day, I would just like to tell women to stay blessed, strong and celebrate your womanhood. Keep spreading love, affection and kindness. Happy Women’s Day!”
By sharing pictures of all the women in his life, the Aik Thi Laila director also penned a heartwarming note addressed to them. “Happy International Women’s Day to all the brilliant women breathing in this beautiful world and making it more wonderful. Thank you for being around,” he said.
Model-turned-actor Iffat Omar also uploaded a photo of the late former Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on her Instagram. “Happy Women’s Day 2023,” read the caption of the post.
“Much love to all the amazing women reading this! You are all strong, beautiful, and warriors,” said actor Zhalay Sarhadi, while sharing numerous photos of her mother, colleagues, and friends. “I could only have stuck 10 pictures here, but I have a zillion amazing women in my life and they all mean the world to me.
Singer Ali Zafar shared his poetry for Women’s Day. “A little something for all the women who make this world a better place. Thank you for making us better men—or rather, better human beings,” he said before reciting a few lines: “Hum paida Insan hotay hain, banday ka putar banati hou tum / Aukat se bahir hojayeen, tou meeta chittar lagati hou tum / Tum hi se hai ronaq, tum se hai rung / Mein gir jaoon agar, muhjay chalna shikhati hou tum.”
Taking to Twitter, veteran actor Adnan Siddiqui encouraged his female followers to keep fighting for justice. He said, “To all the women who have shattered glass ceilings, broken barriers, and challenged the status quo: thank you for your courage, resilience, and determination. Let’s continue to work together to create a more just and inclusive world for all.”

Ammara Hikmat also shared an Instagram Story of a child. “On International Women’s Day, Nuha began commando crawling. Perhaps she is already a feminist in the making?” joked The Legend of Maula Jutt producer.
Model Zara Peerzada, however, had a different message to share on this day. “Saying Happy Women’s Day feels so redundant,” she began. “When I think about the women in my life, country and around the globe; my heart is full of fear and worry. I worry for their safety, sanity and daily mobility.”
She further added, “It’s been difficult—the global attack on our lives, our bodies, abuse, and increasing sexual violence. the inability of the world to just let us be. The fear that if we thrive-we will disrupt the world order-which it probably will-for the better for once. Holding a prayer in my heart and wishing us all a limitless, safe life.”
Other celebs such as Sajal Aly, Usman Mukhtar, Juggan Kazim, Hajra Yamin, and Yumna Zaidi also wished women a happy day today!
