With Independence Day around the corner, our favourite TV actors talk about their favourite freedom fighters.
My favourite freedom fighter is Bhagat Singh because his journey has been the most thrilling. I have learnt so much from the films that I have watched on him.
My favourite freedom fighters are Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad and Subhash Chandra Bose. I have always loved freedom fighters’ life stories. They are so inspiring and really make you realise how much they loved the country.
My favourite freedom fighter is Bhagat Singh. At the age of 23, he gave his life for his country. We can’t even imagine that. At that age, we are studying, searching for a job and thinking about our future. But he did not think even once and gave his life, so he is my favourite. I feel everyone should learn about his life journey, he is amazing.
Anupama Solanki I really cannot choose just one freedom fighter as all of them are my favourite. Every freedom fighter has contributed in the same way to get us the freedom that we enjoy today.
I always have had the highest respect for all the freedom fighters of our country. When I was in school, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and his life used to inspire me the most.
Subuhi Joshi My favourite freedom fighter is Bhagat Singh. He was a synonym for bravery, patriotism and revolution. He was a combination of great intellectual and was an activist working at the grass-root level.
Rahuol Lohani My favourite freedom fighter has been Dr Subhash Chandra Bose. He has contributed a lot to our independence. But I feel, we have not given him the amount of importance as much as we should have. My favourite patriotic song is ‘Ae Watan’ from the film Raazi.
Rohitashv Gour My favourite freedom fighter is Bhagat Singh because he was the one who decided to make our country independent at a very young age. The stories of his bravery have always inspired me.
Malhar Pandya My favourite freedom fighter is Bhagat Singh because I am somewhat like him. I don’t believe in speaking, I believe in doing it and getting the results.
Arif Zakaria My favourite freedom fighter has to be Bhagat Singh. He started working towards a unified India when it all seems impossible!
Amal Sehrawat I was always fascinated by Rani Laxmi Bai. As a kid, I used to imagine the entire war scene and how a woman is fighting with a child tied to her back. And that poem we had in our syllabus- Khoob ladi mardani woh toh Jhansi waali rani thi.
Arun Mandola Bhagat Singh is my favorite freedom fighter. At the age of 23, he died for the nation. It is so inspiring and it makes you think what you were doing at 23.
Ira Sone My favourite freedom fighter is Sarojini Naidu. She was called the nightingale of India. She was the first woman to become the governor of an Indian state. She was an inspiration and played a leading role during the civil disobedient moment.
Reyaansh Vir Chadha
For me, Bhagat Singh will be my all-time favourite freedom fighter. He is my lifetime hero, the great Indian revolutionary. He was a great personality. He inspired the Indians to fight against the British. He led the armed revolt of India against the British. I must say he was very courageous.
Ansh BagriMy favourite freedom fighter Mahatma Gandhi, the way he stood for his principles and followed and advocated non-violence was amazing. His photo is there on every currency note so we always remember his contribution in Indian Independence.
My favourite freedom fighter is Indira Gandhi because she was a visionary and a true warrior. As prime minister, she did whatever she could which wasn’t easy being women in those days.
Ssharad MalhotraMy favourite freedom fighter was Subhash Chandra Bose because he is one of that hero’s who have given it all for our country. I was highly inspired when I read about him in textbooks.
My favourite freedom fighter was Gandhiji because I totally believe in non-violence. His teachings and principals still hold value and must be followed.
