When asked a public figure, how do you think celebrities can contribute to promoting patriotism and unity on Republic Day, Nikki responded, “Celebrities, have a special role in subtly nurturing patriotism and unity.

Sharing her special memories associated with this day, Nikki shared, “Republic Day holds a special place in my heart. One cherished memory involves my childhood when I was in school! I used to always participate in the grand parade and flag hoisting with my classmates, followed up with speeches where we used to reinforce the importance of our democratic values and the incredible progress our nation has made”.

Rajniesh Duggall said that making the country proud is a priority. He also shared his Republic Day plans which are filled with patriotism and personal connections. Drawing inspiration from his family's military background, he emphasizes how celebrities, like himself, can contribute to unity and pride on this important national occasion.

''The plan is to start by attending the Republic Day celebrations in the building, which includes flag hoisting, flowers, and a parade. Afterwards, the idea is to go for a drive to Mumbai's recently opened longest bridge to commemorate Republic Day,'' said the actor.

He also said that 26th January and 15th August hold deep significance for him. ''My maternal lineage, deeply rooted in the army and police, instilled in me a profound connection and patriotism. Representing India, whether through mannerisms abroad or any aspect, is crucial. As an actor and frequent traveller, leaving a positive impression becomes inevitable. Making my country proud is a priority, and with the current government, India is gaining global recognition as a powerhouse,'' he shared.

Sharing his special memories Rajniesh said, ''In my childhood, every 26th of January and 15th of August, we would gather around the TV to watch the Republic Day parade. Sometimes, my uncle would take us to India Gate for the live experience. After the festivities, our large joint family would come together for a special day. We'd play sports like cricket, have picnics, and create cherished memories during our family get-togethers''.
