Gandhi Jayanti 2022 EXCLUSIVE: Aasif Sheikh and other TV celebs pay tribute to Bapu's ideologies

October 2 marks the birth anniversary of India's renowned leader, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, fondly called Mahatma Gandhi or Bapu. He struggled for India's freedom and inspired the world with his simple living and high thinking. Remembering the ‘Father of the Nation’ and his teachings and ideologies, here are a few actors paying their tribute to him. 

Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hain actor Aasif Sheikh exclusively told Pinkvilla, "Mahatma Gandhi once said, ‘Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.’  That is something I have internalized. It means don’t be afraid to live life and try something new. Let life be the reason you are living. It teaches us that one should live life to the fullest and there is learning throughout our journey, and we must not be afraid to live our lives. Do things that one always wanted to and learn throughout the years you live. So whenever I feel bogged down, I step back and start focusing on things that make me happy –travel, yoga, spending time with family or even going out and meeting friends. That way, it helps me find a balance and live my life to the fullest."

Sapna Shikarwar, who is seen as Bimlesh in the comedy television series, Happu Ki Ultan Paltan, shared, "I have been a supporter of Gandhiji’s swadeshi ideology. I am a strong supporter of small-scale industries and local produce. Kiranas are an essential part of our economy. If local sales flourish, they can potentially replace the goods we buy from foreign-based companies that import their goods to India. It will also create more employment opportunities and encourage small and medium businesses. I encourage everyone to promote and support our Indian brands and their products and contribute to making our local brands popular globally."

Mohit Dagga is a part of the newly launched show, Doosri Maa, and speaking about Gandhi Jayanti, he said, "Mahatma Gandhi has inspired us in numerous ways. His life lessons are the most important ones anyone can have. One thing that I learned from Bapu and have applied in my life is the art of forgiveness. Mahatma Gandhi once mentioned, 'The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. I also believe in forgiving others because it allows them to grow and makes us feel lighter. Everybody should try to let go of their feelings of rage and vengeance and clear their minds of all negative emotions'."
