Sunny Leone’s BCL team Chennai Swaggers are quite a classy bunch. A team in a league of its own, they know the value of woman and womanhood in this world. When asked about the special woman in their life, here’s what each one of them had to say:
Pooja Banerjee: For me, my mother is my inspiration and the most strongest woman I have ever seen in my life. She is special for the obvious reason that she is my mother but other than that she is the reason for my hard work and my success.
Rithvik Dhanjani: Always and always my mom, because I have seen the hardships she had to go through to bring us up in a city like Dubai with a nuclear family and financial constraints. She is genuinely the hero of my life and she is the reason why I am and who I am today.
Mansi Sharma: The woman of substance for me in my life is my Mother not because she has given me birth but because the kind of persona she has, that in any situation ,good or bad ,she handles it very gracefully and calmly. Even if the situation is too tough on her, not by any chance would she exhibit that degree of criticality on her face. I have also learnt from her that whatever happens in life is for our own good and infact this is the only and best philosophy I do follow in mylife too.I can go on writing books about ‘Why I consider my mom to be the best woman in the world’ ,last but not the least this woman of substance tells me that you should never turn and look back in the past because if you turn your neck to look anything behind you, It will cause pain in your neck meaning when you visit your past it only gives you pain and nothing else. Learn from your past, march forward and live in the present.
Abhishek Verma: My mom because she is there for me in every phase, like my friend, my brother, my sister, my dad. She is the only one who has been very supportive and still supports me in every situation and every bit of life . All I can say is that she is my inspiration. What matters to me is only her happiness.
Rafi Malik: My mom means the world to me. She is my mom and I think that is enough for making her special. She has been a great human being and a great teacher who taught me all the good lessons in life to lead my life as a good human. She has been an anchor to the ship of my life in my hard times and when I am sad or left all alone by myself. I always talk to her to come out strong in all difficult situations. She has been the guiding light for me in the dark and I guess words are not enough to express my love and respect for my mom. She’s the reason why I respect all the women in the world. Love my mom and Happy Women’s Day to her and all the women in the world.
Mayank Gandhi: Women of substance for me is Ekta Kapoor and she is special because she got me in the industry for which I’ll always be grateful to her.
Mrunal Thakur : As there’s a Jewish proverb, ”God could not be everywhere and therefore god made mothers” and since my mom cannot be around all the time so my destiny gave me 2 more moms I guess. A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us, when friends desert us, when trouble thickens around us, still she will cling to us and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate all our troubles and morosity.So I have 3 women of substance in my life.My mumma who gave birth to me, nurtured me with good morals and values, sacrificed her wishes to fulfill my dreams. Second one Supriya maa who taught me professionalism of this industry and most importantly cooking. The one with whom I can share all my secrets.The third one my rockstar Madhu Raja, she is my buddy, the
dude of my life who taught me to be tough independent and practical in this world.
Kunal Pant : My mother Reeta Pant who came into the family as the eldest daughter- in- law 30 yrs back. Being part of a big family from Pithoragarh who is trying to make a mark in a city like Delhi. She supported my father, his family, took care of me and did all the household chores single-handedly . Doing all this she also enhanced her skills and joined a school next to our place as a teacher and now she is a principal in one of the top schools in Delhi. She is special because she always gives me courage to fight back, helps me in understanding human relationships and how true one should be in his
intentions towards his goals and people in this world. My mother is beautiful, sensitive, tolerant and yet a woman of conviction. I love her, admire her and respect her.
Riya Deepsi : Woman of substance for me in my life is my mother not because she is my mom but my idol, my support, my shield and my everything. I tag her my superwoman, a woman to learn from, a woman to lean on, a woman who is my best friend before and then my mother.She is one woman army. Yes playing varied roles and trying every bit of her to keep me and my family happy and fullfilled before herself and at last if you ask me who that one person is on whom you can fall whole your life and ask for anything and everything then that’s my mother for me . And personally I feel that every mother is a woman of substance in everyone’s life. Wishing everyone a very happy women’s day.
