Shilpa Shetty wishes citizens on India’s 75th Independence Day: May we continue to grow and become stronger

India is celebrating its 75th Independence Day. On August 15, 1947, India got sovereignty from the confinement of the British colonial power. On this day, celebrations are not just limited to a certain religion or caste, but an occasion for the entire country. It also serves as a reminder for the citizens to appreciate the fact that we’re living in a free nation, thanks to the sacrifices of our ancestors. On 15th August, the country's citizens hoist flags while singing the national anthem and cultural parades take place all over the country. The Prime Minister also hoists the national flag and gives a speech at the Red Fort. It is a tradition started by the first prime minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, who raised the national flag above the Lahori Gate of Red Fort in Delhi in 1947.

Meanwhile, on the auspicious occasion, actress Shilpa Shetty took to her Instagram handle and shared a video wishing the citizens and the families of martyrs on Independence Day. Sharing a short video montage, Shilpa wrote, “Happy Independence Day. May we continue to grow and become stronger over the next 75 years to come. #HappyIndependenceDay #75yearsofindependence #freedom #grateful #blessed #ProudIndian #VandeMataram #JaiHind.”
