Happy I-Day: From Big B To Akshay Kumar Salutes the 'True Warriors'
Every year on 15th August, we celebrate Independence Day which marks the country’s independence from British rule. The day also coincides with the Partition of the country. As India is celebrating its 74th Independence Day today and to celebrate the day, celebrities took to their social media handles to wish their fans. Over the years, the Indian film industry has portrayed different shades of patriotism on the screen. Be it Alia Bhatt’s Raazi, Vicky Kaushal’s Uri or Akshay Kumar’s Kesari, films over the years have revisited unsung heroes or incidents showcasing people’s love for the country. Also, JP Dutta’s Border, Aamir Khan starrer Rang De Basanti and many other films have become a popular watch on television.
Tollywood actor Mahesh Babu tweeted, “The day that marked the dawn of a new beginning… When Independence became our greatest victory! May this freedom lead our way. Let’s always be grateful. Happy #IndependenceDay to all my fellow Indians! Jai Hind”

Furthermore, Mohanlal, Hema Malini and others feature in the Independence Day special song
On Independence Day, patriotic songs in regional languages are broadcast on television and radio channels. Some of the all-time favourite tracks are “Desh Ki Dharti”, AR Rahman’s “Maa Tujhe Salaam” and “Vande Mataram” by Lata Mangeshkar among others. In addition, children are asked to perform or sing patriotic tracks.
Also, the day is usually celebrated with cultural programmes, flag-hoisting ceremonies, and other competitions. But this year, because of the pandemic, many restrictions have been put in place. It is, therefore, advised that you revel in patriotism from the safety of your house, maintain all safety guidelines. But do not forget to wish your dear ones on the special occasion.
Happy Independence Day!
