Happy Independence Day 2018: Mohammad Nazim, Adaa Khan, Vahbiz Dorabjee, Vivian DSena Reveal Their Favourite Freedom Fighters

Independence Day 2018 is here and the nation is soaking in patriotic fervour. Telly stars tell us who their favourite freedom fighter is. They also reveal what freedom means to them and what can citizens do to make India progress. 

Pooja Banerjee
Pooja Banerjee & Subhash Chandra Bose

Pooja Banerjee: I feel patriotic every day. I am free to walk, free to say what I want to and do what I want to, this means I am part of a free country. But yes, to make our country the best country in the world, I think education is most important. The day literacy rate goes higher, most of the national issues will be resolved. Subhash Chandra Bose is the freedom fighter, whom I like the most. He was a very dynamic freedom fighter, even at that time. My favourite patriotic song is Aye Mere Watan Ke Logon by Lata ji.

Vahbiz Dorabjee
Vahbiz Dorabjee & Mahatma Gandhi

Vahbiz Dorabjee: Patriotism should be felt on all days and not only a selected few. We can work towards keeping the country clean as well as look into our infrastructure and finish corruption. Be a responsible citizen in paying your taxes. I cannot name any one freedom fighter. Right from Gandhiji to Bhagat Singh, everyone had an equal contribution in India's independence. We must respect them. My favourite song is Vande Mataram by A.R. Rahman -- I just love it.

Shashank Vyas
Shashank Vyas & Bhagat Singh

Shashank Vyas: It’s not that we just show patriotism on 15th August and 26th January. These are the official days on which we share the feeling of independence and togetherness with each other, like Holi or Diwali. I am a great fan of Bhagat Singh. He was so young when he fought in the freedom struggle and gave his life for the country. He showed everyone what real patriotism is. My favourite patriotic song is Mere Desh Ki Dharti.

Mohammad Nazim
Mohammad Nazim & Mahatma Gandhi

Mohammad Nazim: Patriotism is not just about singing patriotic numbers, it has many other aspects. India has progressed so much over the years, but we have a long way to go. There are still some fundamental problems like poverty, illiteracy and unemployment that plague the country and we need to work on these. If I have to choose one freedom fighter who has really motivated me, it will have to be Gandhi Ji. He followed the path of truth and non-violence and his teachings are so relevant. My favourite patriotic number is Har Karam Apna Karege Ae Vatan Tere Liye from Karma. I love the lyrics.

Ssharad Malhotra
Ssharad Malhotra & Bhagat Singh

Ssharad Malhotra: My love for India cannot be restricted to just these two days in a year. I am proud to be an Indian. As far as helping my country is concerned, I feel we should eradicate corruption. That will really help India progress. I remember studying about the freedom struggle when I was in school and I was the most inspired by Bhagat Singh. He did so much for the country, I don't think anyone can even think of doing so much today. My favourite patriotic song is Mera Rang De Basanti Chola.

Adaa Khan
Adaa Khan & Subhash Chandra Bose

Adaa Khan: I love my country and days like Republic Day and Independence Day give me opportunities to show this love. I am aware that India is not perfect, but no country is. Rather than looking at all that is wrong with our country and the government, let us concentrate on what is right here. We have such a diverse culture with different languages and different cuisines. This is something that we can appreciate about India. We have such a rich history too. I remember I used to love studying about the freedom struggle and Subhash Chandra Bose was my favourite freedom fighter. My favourite patriotic song is Aye Mere Watan Ke Logon.

Vivian DSena
Vivian DSena & Chandrashekhar Azad

Vivian DSena: I want to salute all the freedom fighters because of whom we roam around freely in our country, we have the liberty to express ourselves and are the biggest democratic country. We as Indians, should respect the struggle that they went through, be it Chandrashekhar Azad, Bhagat Singh or Gandhiji, they fought for our freedom and made India the strongest and one of the popular countries in the world. We should stand together and have the feeling of patriotism inside us. We should have the feeling of equality among us. So that India can blossom more in the future. Dil Diya Hai Jaan Bhi Denge, Aye Watan Tere Liye, is my favourite patriotic song because of its quality of bringing out patriotic feeling inside anyone's heart.
