As India celebrates Independence Day 2023, popular actors Akash Choudhary, Puneesh Sharma, and Romanch Mehta have come forward to express their thoughts on this significant national occasion. These accomplished artists, known for their impactful contributions to the entertainment industry, have opened up about their personal reflections on the essence and importance of Independence Day.

Bhagya Lakshmi actor and fashion influencer, Akash Choudhary expressed, “Independence Day means a lot to me. It brings back memories of my childhood and makes me feel nostalgic. It reminds me of my school days, especially the excitement of having half-days and getting ladoos from the school, which felt like a symbol of freedom. My family has a strong history in the army and police, making this day even more special. I’ve seen my grandfather and father’s dedication to the country, which deepens my appreciation for Independence Day. The importance of this day is huge because the sacrifices of our freedom fighters brought us to where we are today. We should always remember and honor their contributions and families as our country grows. It’s a day for celebrating, meeting friends, and enjoying activities at home.

Akash added, “This year, we’re planning a nostalgic Independence Day party that reminds us of our school and college days. Even when I’ve been abroad, I proudly display the Indian flag, showing my pride. This year, I’ll continue this tradition while traveling on the 16th. I’ll also have a nostalgic party at home, recalling school memories. Coming from a family with a strong military background—my grandfather, Nanaji, and father all served in the army and police—I’m really proud to be part of this dedicated family and our diverse and beautiful nation. Independence Day has a universal message: we should honor our nation, aim for progress, and hold onto our culture and values. Let’s not be swayed by social media and always remember the sacrifices that built our country.”

Bigg Boss 11 contestant Puneesh Sharma, who is all set to make a comeback after 2 years with his music video Haara Nahi said, “Independence Day signifies the strength of unity and the sacrifices of those who fought for our freedom. It’s a reminder that our identity is rooted in these hard-fought liberties. Every year, I take a moment to reflect on the courage of our ancestors and the responsibility we hold to preserve their legacy. This year, I plan to celebrate with my family, recalling stories of our nation’s journey to freedom. Freedom, to me, is the ability to express, embrace diversity, and contribute positively. Let’s honor our nation by working towards a better tomorrow, where every citizen is treated with respect and equality.

Actor Romanch Mehta, known for his roles in Devon Ke Dev Mahadev…, Siya Ke Ram and more is shooting for his upcoming OTT series Bhagin. Sharing his IDay celebrations, he said, “Independence Day fills me with immense pride and gratitude. It’s a celebration of the sacrifices that paved the way for our cherished freedom. I mark the day by spending time with my friends, sharing stories of our nation’s struggle for independence. This year, we’ll be watching some patriotic movies/series and remembering the old days. For me, freedom means listening to your heart and doing what it truly desires. Also, it is the power to express oneself fearlessly and to work for progress. My message is simple: remember the sacrifices and strive to contribute positively to our country. Let’s safeguard our freedom by embracing unity, respect, and growth.”

As Independence Day is celebrated today, the reflections of Akash Choudhary, Puneesh Sharma, and Romanch Mehta serve as a reminder of the significance of this day in the hearts of every Indian.
