Ayushmann Khurrana, Shraddha Kapoor and Farhan Khan hail the 'equal inheritance law' judgement by Supreme Court

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court of India gave a landmark judgment for the rights of the women in our society. Amending the Hindu Succession Act, 1956, a three-judge bench gave the daughters equal rights in inheriting the property of her parents as the sons. The judgment was nationwide hailed and everyone welcomed it with open arms including our Bollywood celebrities. Actors such as Ayushmann Khurrana, Shraddha Kapoor and Farhan Akhtar lauded the decision by the apex court of the country.

 
The Andhadhun actor took to his social media handle to welcome the decision. "The Supreme Court on Tuesday held that daughters, like sons, have an equal birthright to inherit ancestral property and the amendment to the Hindi Succession Act, 1956 will have retrospective effect. A big step, a necessary step and I welcome this verdict wholeheartedly," wrote Ayushmann in his Instagram story.
 
Likewise, Farhan Akhtar too welcomed the decision and took to his Twitter handle to write about it. "In a landmark decision, the Supreme Court ensures the unconditional right of a daughter to her parent's property. It gives daughters inheritance rights to the parental property by birth. A great day in the march for gender equality," his tweet read. Shraddha Kapoor took to her Instagram story and wrote, "About time #Equality”.
