Independence Day: Celebs Share What Independence Means To Them

Ahead of Independence Day On August 15, celebrities have shared what being independent means to them.

Here’s what they said:

Actor Hasan Zaidi:
Not in the context of the nation, independence should ideally mean free expression, free speech, the freedom to practice one’s religion freely. The freedom to be able to meet, express, and be all-inclusive with each other. That to me is Independence.
I’ve always believed in nonviolence because I think violence is a very negative and useless emotion or practice nothing good ever comes out of it so for that reason Mahatma Gandhi is my favorite freedom fighter.
Saare jahaan se acha Hindustan humara is my favorite patriotic song.

Actor Sharad Malhotra:
Independence day means doing what you love and loving what you do. I believe in living life on my own terms. My favorite freedom fighter is Maharana Pratap. I got to play his role in tv show too. He was a real warrior. He inspires me always I love the song rang de Basanti Chola. The feeling of patriotism is always heart-touching. Pandemic has made us value life more. We should all celebrate Independence day in our respective buildings.

Actor Himanshu Malhotra:
Independence means following your heart and standing for what is right. My film Shershah has just been released. I feel fantastic being part of such a film. We all must value our independence. My favorite patriotic song is the Ae Mere Vatan Ke logo sung by Lata Mangeshkar. My favorite freedom fighter is Subhash Chandra Bose. He was a man of principles who set an example and as a child to his story fascinated me.

Actor Harjinder Singh:
According to my, freedom is being transparent and not being scared of judgmental eyes and social acceptance of who you are irrespective of race, color, and caste. Even after seven decades of freedom, I feel that we are still trapped by social acceptance and social anxiety. Accepting the true version of yourself is real freedom. My favorite freedom fighter is Bhagat Singh who fought at such a young age and sacrificed his life for the nation. He was a warrior and was fearless. My favorite song is “Maa Tujhe Salaam” as it is very heartwarming.

Actor Zohaeb Farooqui:
This day means a lot to me. It’s an emotional as well as a proud day for us. Today whatever freedom we are enjoying, we are enjoying because of this specific day. Because this was the day when India gained its independence and was established as a free and independent nation. History does make us understand that there are so many people who contributed to this day. Picking one won’t be fair. Hence, from the bottom of my heart, I value and salute all those who made this day possible for us.

Chat show host Mahreen Khan:
Independence means living your life your own way where you can breathe and think, where you can do things that you want. It’s not about boys or girls, it’s about everybody. My favorite freedom fighter is Subhas Chandra Bose.
