Mumbai, Aug 15 (IANS) India is celebrating 75 years of its freedom from British colonial rule. As the nation soaks in the grand celebrations, B-town isn't far behind in expressing their love for the nation and marking the special day on their social media.

While Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan hoisted the Indian tricolour at his residence, Mannat, on Sunday evening under the 'Har Ghar Tiranga' initiative. On Monday, global star Priyanka Chopra Jonas shared a video in the story section of her Instagram.
