Sriti Jha (Contestant of Khatron Ke Khiladi 12): On this 75th Independence Day, I pay my tribute to all those who fight at the border for the safety of citizens, to the health workers, and to all those who make the country a peaceful and harmonious place to live in.

Ankit Gupta (Essays the role of Fateh Virk in Udaariyaan): Growing up, I have always celebrated Independence Day with my friends in school. The first thing which used to happen was the flag hoisting ceremony followed by singing the National Anthem together. On the sets of ‘Udaariyaan’ as well, we celebrate the day with lot of enthusiasm, and everyone wears tricolour outfits. On this auspicious occasion, I wish everyone a ‘Happy Independence Day’.

Eisha Singh (Essays the role of Suhani Oberoi in Sirf Tum): This Independence Day free the bird inside you and let it fly higher in the sky. May we all achieve greater heights, and in return to all that the country has done for us we do something to make the place better. I am proud of how our country is achieving success in various fields and has recently won so many medals in the Commonwealth Games too. I’d also like to thank all the doctors for keeping our nation strong even during the times of Pandemic, I feel honoured to have gotten a chance to essay the role of a doctor in ‘Sirf Tum’.  I wish all the Indians a ‘Happy Independence Day’.

Sangita Ghosh (Essays the role of Swaran Bedi in Swaran Ghar): Independence Day every year holds a special significance in my life as it takes me to my childhood memories when everyone used to gather for a flag hoisting ceremony in our school.  We have a day off on the sets of ‘Swaran Ghar’ and I cannot wait to go home to my daughter, Devi, and celebrate this day with her. I would like to extend heartfelt gratitude to all our great national leaders, because of their valour my daughter, Devi, and children like her are witnessing a progressive independent nation. I believe freedom comes with responsibilities and one must respect the freedom they have; it should not be taken for granted. I wish our country takes a step forward to attain victory in every aspect this year and in many years to come. My hearty wishes to all the citizens of India. Jai Hind.

Radhika Muthukumar (Essays the role of Simar Oswal in Sasural Simar Ka 2): There’s no doubt that in India, everyone is very hardworking. Every day on sets of ‘Sasural Simar Ka 2’ I see people working hard non-stop for a better future. I am very proud of the country I live in and its people. Today, on this occasion of ’75th Independence Day’ I see people celebrating the day with zeal and patriotism. I pray our country reaches greater heights with peace and prosperity.

Anchal Sahu (Essays on the role of Parineet in Parineetii): As there is an off on the set of ‘Parineetii’, I am celebrating the 75th year of Independence by watching the splendorous ceremony at the Attari-Wagah Border on television with my family. It has been a tradition at my house since we were kids. Our parents ensured that we express our gratitude to the fighters of this nation and thank them for their bravery. I wish all my dear Indians a Happy Independence Day!
