August 15 is one of the most significant days in the lives of every Indian. This year as we celebrate the 76th Independence Day, we look back at all the struggles, blood, sweat, and toil of freedom fighters that gave us freedom. Celebs speak about the significance of the day in their lives and the one patriotic film they have seen repeatedly. They also talk about their favourite freedom fighter.

Independence Day means freedom of mind, body, and soul from all negative thoughts and deeds. It means equality to all where no one is superior or inferior to each other, there's freedom of rights and equal love and respect for all. I have seen Karma multiple times and each time it provoked a feeling of patriotism in me. I respect, love, and have heartfelt gratitude for all freedom fighters as they sacrificed their precious lives for our freedom, but I am most inspired by martyr Bhagat Singh Ji, as I find his approach very balanced. He knew when to show aggression but without causing any damage to human life.

Independence Day is a significant milestone for our country, as we gained independence 76 years ago. Compared to other developed nations, we achieved freedom only in 1947. This day holds great importance for me as it reminds me of the freedom fighters who endured jail, and brutality, and sacrificed their lives so that we could live in a free nation. It's a moment of homage and gratitude to them all. They sacrificed their lives for us. The patriotic film ‘Gandhi’ vividly and truthfully portrayed that period. Personally, I had the opportunity to play Jawaharlal Nehru in Rajkumar Santoshi’s film ‘Gandhi Godse Ek Yudh’. Studying him fascinated me. A true visionary, he knew how to handle the British and relinquished his promising career for the country. Even after independence, he contributed to the country by establishing educational institutes, hospitals, factories, dams, and other infrastructure facilities. He followed Mahatma Gandhi’s principles, and in the most non-violent manner led India to freedom. We owe a great deal to Nehru’s vision.

Honestly speaking, this 76th year of independence is very refreshing for me. If you see, everyone has new energy after Covid, everyone is talking about new growth, business, revolution, and all. So I feel now we got freedom from the Britishers. I want to see Manoj Kumar’s desh bhakti film. My favourite freedom fighter is Shaheed Bhagat Singh because whatever he did is incredible, nobody can do what he did at such an early age. I am sure all freedom fighters will be happy to see the new Bharat.

Independence Day holds deep significance. Commemorating India’s freedom from British rule in 1947, the day honours the sacrifices and struggles of freedom fighters. Lagaan stands out as a cherished patriotic film, portraying villagers using cricket to defy British tyranny. Another film is ‘Rang De Basanti’, highlighting youthful activism. As for freedom fighters, Subhas Chandra Bose’s unwavering patriotism and his role in India’s struggle for freedom have earned him admiration. His bold approach and contributions continue to inspire generations striving for justice and liberty.

Independence Day is a reminder of a nation’s journey from oppression to liberation, a testament to the resilience and sacrifice that paved the path to freedom. As we raise our flags on this day, we honour the struggles of countless freedom fighters who fought valiantly for a sovereign India. Cinematic narratives like ‘Lagaan’ and ‘Rang De Basanti’ are more than just movies, they are reflections of the spirit that courses through the veins of a nation, showcasing the unwavering courage and unity that define us. And among the pantheon of freedom fighters, Subhas Chandra Bose's legacy burns bright. His resolute patriotism and unyielding dedication serve to guide us to remember that the pursuit of liberty requires audacity and unwavering determination.

Certainly! Independence Day holds great significance as it commemorates the day when a nation gains freedom from colonial rule, marking the beginning of self-governance and sovereignty. A patriotic film that resonates with me is "Lagaan," a tale of courage and unity during India's struggle for independence! And one more I loved watching “Shershaah.” My favorite freedom fighter is Bhagat Singh, known for his bravery and dedication to the cause of Indian independence.
