Gandhi Jayanti is celebrated every year on 2 October to mark the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi and is one of the three national holidays of India. Hailed as the 'Father of the Nation', Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi is synonymous with the Indian freedom struggle. However, what distinguished him from the revolutionaries of the world was that he was also revered as an ambassador of peace - one who led the way to free his country from its oppressors without violence. Bollywood celebrities such as Shah Rukh Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, and others took to their social media accounts and extended their wishes. Take a quick look.

Meanwhile, many films on the freedom fighter after Gandhi have worked on five trajectory models - his life (Gandhi Se Mahatma Tak/The Making of the Mahatma), history (Savarkar, Bhagat Singh, Bose and Nine Hours To Rama), a flawed hero (Ambedkar and Gandhi My Father), ideological conflict (Sardar, Hey Ram, Gandhi to Hitler/Dear Friend Hitler and Hamne Gandhi Ko Maar Diya) and as a metaphor of non-violence and tolerance (or the lack of it) in the India of today (Lage Raho Munna Bhai and Maine Gandhi Ko Nahi Mara).
