On Friday, Ireland voted in a referendum — whether the Constitution should be changed so as to extend civil marriage rights to same-sex couples. From early Saturday, large crowds gathered at Dublin Castle to hear the final official result.
Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny also welcomed the results, saying that Ireland has become the first country in the world to vote for equal marriage.
Bollywood celebrities took to Twitter to show their support. Here is what B-Town has to say:
Hrithik Roshan: A worlds first. Live n let live.

Anubhav Sinha: And Congratulations Ireland!!!
