They say behind every successful man there's a woman. So take out some time for that woman in your life who is a mother, wife, daughter, sister or a friend... who completes you and is the core of your very existence.

​Celebrate this Women’s Day by treating that special woman with these Bollywood treats:

Dare to fight it 'Damini' way

Rajkumar Santoshi's directorial 'Damini' is a portrayal of a woman's fight against not just her family but even the society for the justice of a rape victim.

Create your own 'Fashion'

Madhur Bhandarkar's directorial flick very realistically portrays the world of 'Fashion'. It shows how every girl who wants to pursue a glamorous career strives in the city of dreams- Mumbai, to climb up the ladder of success. Yet most of them fail to see the darker side that comes with it.

Priyanka Chopra and Kangana Ranuat charismatically took the nation with their 'Fashion ka hai ye jalwa...'.

Let's 'Chak De India'

The women in this movie overpower the protagonist Shah Rukh Khan who plays a coach in the Shimit Amin flick. The movie portrays the strength of the women from all walks of life- be it Vidya Sharma (Vidya Malvade) who despite being a housewife joins the national hockey's team and becomes the captain, or the Manipuri girls who courageously give a cold shoulder to the eve teasers.

It's all about 'English Vinglish'

Sridevi who is a housewife and a mother of two kids, strives to match up to her children and husband's expectations of speaking fluent English language.

So let's compensate for all the fights that we have had with our mother and treat her with this special movie.

Yeh Meri 'Kahaani'

Sujoy Ghosh's 'Kahaani' is a powerful representation of a woman's inner strength. Here the protagonist Vidya Balan embarks on a journey to avenge her husband's death.

Be the 'Queen' of your life

It's a must watch for every woman this Women’s Day. Vikas Bahl's flick revolves around the life of Rani (played by Kangana Ranaut) who decides to go on her honeymoon alone after her fiance refuses to marry her.

The movie sends out a beautiful message that every woman is a Queen even without her man.

Be a 'Mardaani' yourself

Pradeep Sarkar's 'Mardaani' is a tribute to all women officers in the country and portrays the courage of every woman that is much more powerful in comparison to the physical strength of man.

Here, the protagonist Rani Mukerji who plays a police officer strives to fight human trafficking.

Live it like 'Neerja'

We can never forget this brave soul Neerja Bhanot a Pan Am Flight purser, who fought valiantly against the terrorists and saved hundreds of lives. She has truly epitomized women's strength.

Neerja's precious words of wisdom still gives us goose bumps- 'Zindagi badi honi chahiye... lambi nahi'.
