International Nurses Day 2023: 5 Memorable Bollywood Films that Spotlight Nurses as Leading Characters

Nurses play a crucial role in providing care, comfort, and compassion to patients in need within the healthcare system. Every year on May 12th, International Nurses Day is celebrated worldwide to honor the dedication and hard work of nurses. The day commemorates the birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale, who is known as the founder of modern nursing due to her pioneering work during the Crimean War.

International Nurses Day recognizes the tireless efforts of nurses in hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, and other healthcare settings, often in challenging conditions. They work diligently to provide the best possible care and support to those who are sick and vulnerable.

On the occasion of International Nurses Day, Home Minister Amit Shah took to Twitter to extend his congratulations to nurses. He acknowledged the hard work and selfless dedication of nurses who form the foundation of our healthcare system. Their extraordinary examples of sacrifice in saving lives, particularly during the pandemic, serve as a source of inspiration for humankind.

This year's International Nurses Day holds special significance due to the critical role nurses have played in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Nurses have been at the forefront of the battle, working tirelessly for long hours, often without proper protective equipment, and putting their own health at risk to care for those infected with the virus.

Here are five noteworthy Bollywood movies that center around nurses:

'Nurse' (2020): Directed by Ashok Nanda, this film narrates the story of a nurse who battles a corrupt medical system to seek justice for one of her patients.

'Khamoshi: The Musical' (1996): Starring Manisha Koirala and Salman Khan, this Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie tells the story of a deaf and mute nurse who finds solace in music.

'Mere Jeevan Saathi' (1972): This romantic drama, featuring Rajesh Khanna and Tanuja, includes a nurse as one of the primary characters.

'Ankhon Mein Tum Ho' (1997): A nurse plays a pivotal role in this romantic thriller starring Sharad Kapoor and Suman Ranganathan.

'Amar Akbar Anthony' (1977): Directed by Manmohan Desai, this classic film features a brief yet memorable appearance by a nurse portrayed by Parveen Babi.

While there may be other Bollywood movies that have nurses as supporting characters, these are some that prominently feature nurses in their stories.
