MUMBAI—As per tradition, the Sony Entertainment Channel issued a media release on their latest artistes speaking about Republic Day.

Tejasswi Prakash (Diya in “Rishta Likhenge Hum Naya”):

“From all the morals that I have been taught since my school days, I feel it is of utmost importance for all of us to respect the sacrifices of all the freedom fighters. One of the fondest memories from my school days is of the march-past, which was led by me for my class. We used to initiate the ceremony with the traditional lighting of the lamp and then hoisting the Tricolor, which was followed by us singing patriotic songs.”

Abeer Soofi (Sai Baba in “Mere Sai”):

“Republic Day is an important day as it’s a sign of our democratic rule. It signifies us being an independent country with our own constitution, wherein we have got the privilege of choosing our own government, our Prime Minister and the nation’s President as well in a way. I have been a NCC (National Cadet Corps) cadet wherein we used to be a part of the parade in Delhi at Janpath. I was selected for this parade, and those memories always make me nostalgic. Students from different states would come together and join us in the parade.”

Akanksha Puri (Parvati in “Vighnaharta Ganesh”):

“Being the daughter of a decorated police officer, I have beautiful childhood memories of watching my father hoisting the Indian Tricolor at the police station. I used to wait for this day in my school every year, so as to wear that white uniform with my favorite Indian badge on it. Participating in the school Republic Day Parade, waiting for special sweets and eating my friends’ portions as well is something that always brings a wide smile on my face. On this Republic day, I plan to start spreading awareness of ‘No Smoking,’ and it will start from our sets of “Vighnaharta Ganesh.”

Vatsal Sheth (Kabir Raichand in “Haasil “):

“I feel we should celebrate being a republic every day and not on a single day. It’s one of the most defining moments in the formation of our country. I love watching the Republic Day parade that happens at Delhi, reflecting our defense prowess. Republic Day always evokes a lot of memories from my school days, when I was always active in the school parades.”

Praneet Bhat (Persian King Darius in “Porus”):

“On the occasion of Republic Day, I would like to extend warm wishes to all my countrymen from the entire team of “Porus” and would want all of us to spread the message of love and brotherhood. This show narrates how our citizens were busy fighting among themselves over trivial topics, which made it easier for foreign powers to secure entry in our land. It is of pristine importance to maintain unity and togetherness among all of us.”
