Hollywood star Gal Gadot, who was recently seen reprising the titular role in Wonder Woman 1984, has called Bilkis Dadi, the face of the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protests at Shaheen Bagh earlier this year one of her "personal wonder women".
The actor shared a series of pictures on her Instagram page, acknowledging young girls and women from all walks of life across the globe.
"Saying farewell to 2020, with all my love to #MyPersonalWonderWomen Some are those closest to me – my family, my friends – some are inspiring women I’ve loved discovering, and some are exceptional women I hope to meet in the future," Gadot said in the caption of the post.
The 35-year-old actor had, in a now-deleted Instagram story, referred to Bilkis as "82-year-old activist fighting for women’s equality in India". While that was later deleted, Bilkis remains a part of Gadot's post.

Bilkis, popularly known as Shaheen Bagh Dadi, has also featured
in the Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people of 2020.
