This Martyr’s Day, Zee TV actors talk about the sacrifices made by India’s freedom fighters- Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev Thapar and Shivaram Rajguru

This Martyr’s Day

On March 23, 1930, Bhagat Singh, Shivaram Rajguru, and Sukhdev Thapar were hanged to death by the Britishers in Lahore Jail. The trio’s bent towards revolution was markedly different from Gandhi’s nonviolence-related policies. But their work was crucial in achieving freedom from the hands of the Britishers. Martyrs’ Day is celebrated on every March 23 of the year to remember the brave, young freedom fighters. Appreciating the sacrifices made by these freedom revolutionaries, Zee TV actors- Manav Gohil from Main Hoon Aparajita, Aishwarya Khare from Bhagya Lakshmi, Ashi Singh from Meet, and Namish Taneja from Maitree shared their thoughts on the same.

Actor Manav Gohil who essays the role of Akshay in Zee TV’s Main Hoon Aparajita mentioned, “Remembering the brave hearts of India has always been rejuvenating for the youth of our country, and to learn about the sacrifices made by the revolutionary freedom fighters- Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, and Rajguru. Their monumental contribution towards the freedom of our country, and stories, still inspires one and all and makes us proud. On the occasion of Martyr’s Day, we pay our respects to these great martyrs’ supreme sacrifice, and I am sure every citizen of this country will always remain indebted to them for attaining the freedom.”

Aishwarya Khare who essays the role of Lakshmi in Zee TV’s Bhagya Lakshmi mentioned, “Since childhood, we have been learning about the independence and what all people had to go through to be free after all. In every India’s freedom story there are three fighters who are always mentioned, and they are the iconic- Bhagat Singh, Shivaram Rajguru, and Sukhdev Thapar. Their contribution to the country inspires many of us and make us feel grateful for it even today. All our nation’s heroes’ sacrifices have led us to live this democratic life and it still give me goosebumps thinking about what all they had to go through. When I was a kid, I used to sit with my family, every now and then and watch all the patriotic movies. And we should always celebrate and remember the contribution of the fighters who have fought for our freedom against the Britishers.”

Ashi Singh, who essays the role of Meet Hooda in Zee TV’s Meet mentioned, “Every year,23rd March is remembered as the day when three brave freedom revolutionaries- Bhagat Singh, Shivaram Rajguru, and Sukhdev Thapar, were hanged to death by Britishers. This day is basically celebrated in memory of freedom fighters who laid down their lives to navigate India to be independent.  We have been taught about this day since childhood, and I believe it that we are able to live freely only because of all the sacrifices and struggles they have gone through. And I feel every Indian will always be grateful to them.”

Namish Taneja, who essays the role of Ashish in Zee TV’s Maitree also mentioned, We celebrated this day in the memory of Bhagat Singh, Shivaram Rajguru, and Sukhdev Thapar because they sacrificed their life for India’s freedom. Their immolation helped galvanize the Indian independence movement. When I was in school, I have studied a lot about them, but of course we understand their sacrifice much better after growing up. I feel it’s important for everyone to remember all the valiant warriors who fought and sacrificed their lives for our country.”
