The world must see our participation too. We are all proud 'Desis.' Jai Hind!"

Proud to be an Indian, today & always. Happy 71st #RepublicDay to all.— Ajay Devgn (@ajaydevgn) January 26, 2020
The difference between what our parents think of freedom versus us is that they fought too damn hard for their freedom. They will not give it up for someone else's idea of what difference means. #republicday#mindsmatter#appreciateourdifferences#freedomtobe— Kajol (@itsKajolD) January 26, 2020
