Republic Day 2023: 5 Bollywood Biopics On Freedom Fighters

India
will
mark
its
74th
Republic
Day
on
26th
January.
The
day
commemorates
the
adoption
of
the
Constitution
of
India
on
January
26,
1950.
Though
India
gained
its
independence
from
the
British
Raj
in
1947,
it
wasn’t
until
January
26,
1950,
that
India’s
constitution
came
into
effect
and
it
was
declared
a
sovereign
and
republican
nation.
This
could
have
been
possible
because
of
some
brave
hearts
who
sacrificed
their
lives
to
protect
the
country
and
its
people.

Bollywood
has,
in
the
last
few
decades,
showcased
the
story
of
its
unsung
heroes
who
changed
the
course
of
India’s
history.
Such
films
have
moved
us
to
tears
and
sparked
patriotic
feelings
in
us.
As
we
Indians
gear
up
to
celebrate
the
day
with
much
pomp
and
pride,
let’s
take
a
look
at
5
biopics
that
are
based
on
the
glorious
lives
of
Indian
freedom
fighters
and
leaders.
