Gandhi Jayanti : On Mahatma Gandhi’s 148th birthday, Bollywood celebrities took to social media and gave their remembrance to the iconic national leader. While various B-town actors have had the privilege to play Gandhi on screen, even the ones who didn’t, were active enough to post their wishes.

Anupam Kher, who starred in the gripping drama, ‘Maine Gandhi Ko Nahi Mara’ where he played a man who hallucinated that he killed Gandhi by accident shared a clip where he can be seen helping the cleaning department pick up the garbage from the streets. All his life, Gandhiji stood up for the mantra that ‘Cleanliness is Godliness’ and Anupam is remembering it by linking it to PM Narendra Modi’s ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan.’ The 62-year-old actor captioned the video as, “On Gandhi Jayanti Sharing few videos with you all for #SwachhataHiSeva campaign by Prime Minister @narendramodi. 1st Video is what I saw!!” The ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan.’ was launched on October 2, 2014 by the PM with the vision to have a cleaner India by 2019.
Shah Rukh Khan also tweeted a beautiful quote by Bapu and wrote, “‘Where there is love, there is life.’ Let’s spread love & warmth the way Bapu would’ve liked us to… #GandhiJayanti.”
Baadshaho actor Ajay Devgn also posted his wish on Twitter. He wrote, “There couldn’t be a more apt way to celebrate #GandhiJayanti than to mark it as Rashtriya Swachhta Divas.” His wife Kajol who was last seen in VIP 2 said, “It’s a good day for peace. Happy Gandhi Jayanti !”
Jab Harry Met Sejal actor Anushka Sharma also had something special to say, she posted “His greatness was & is about understanding this & speaking it out to millions. May you all find that greatness in you. Happy #GandhiJayanti.” Actor Riteish Deshmukh was also quick to pay his tribute to the father of the nation, “Humble tribute to the father of our nation. His core values are as relevant today as they were during our freedom struggle. #GandhiJayanti.”
