This year, India commemorates its 75th Republic Day, marking the adoption of the constitution on January 26, 1950, and the attainment of sovereignty. The theme of this year's Republic Day is 'Viksit Bharat' and 'Bharat: Loktantra ki Matruka', which symbolises the country's aspirations and its role as the nurturer of democracy. As the fervour catches up on social media, here are some of B-town’s celebs who took to the platform to extend wishes.
