Actors pay tribute on anniversary of freedom fighter Bhagat Singh’s death : The Tribune India
Bhagat Singh was 23 when he was hanged in Lahore prison on March 23, 1931. He is not only celebrated for his contribution to the freedom movement but also for his courage, manhood, sacrifice and intelligence . Remembering him on his death anniversary, these actors share what Bhagat Singh means to them.
Punjabi actor Jobanpreet Singh, who was in the police force before entering the entertainment industry, said: “For me, from my childhood, he was the real superhero that India had, but unfortunately he did not get his due. In fact, it was he who transformed the romantic idea of freedom into a real movement. The actor believes that one way to imbibe Bhagat Singh’s teachings into our lives would be to support families who lose their sons at the country’s borders.
Having played real roles on the big screen, Dev Kharoud’s inspiration is Bhagat Singh. “He is my role model. I am sure all Punjabi will say so. I have been a fan of Bhagat Singh since childhood. There are pictures of him on every wall in my house. His thinking was revolutionary.
Actress Pranati Rai also has immense respect for Bhagat Singh. “I grew up listening to my mother’s Bhagat Singh stories. I idolize him for his intelligence and bravery. His act of bravery, patriotism and selfless love for the country will be remembered until the end of time.
For Jagjit Singh, who was last seen at Paatal Lok, Bhagat Singh embodies responsibility. “If you can’t tell right and wrong just because you’re not accepted into a group, that’s no way to live. I understood this through Bhagat Singh,” he says.
Bhagat Singh’s sacrifice, as Lucky Dhaliwal says, “was the greatest turning point in India’s freedom struggle. His passion for the good of humanity is unparalleled. There is only one Bhagat Singh and he is my hero.
As for Anjana Sukhani, “Bhagat Singh was for many limited only to books…until his story was told in the cinema. He will be forever remembered and read about.
