Unfurling the National Flag and singing the National Anthem, 'Jana Gana Mana', is a matter of pride for every Indian.
Today on August 15, starting from the public figures to the common man, everyone hoisted the tricolour with respect and pride following the government's call for Har Ghar Tiranga initiative to commemorate the country's 75 years of independence.
Different social media platforms were flooded with pictures and videos in which people showcased their responsibility and patriotism with filled hearts.
Moreover, the government's 'Har Ghar Tiranga' campaign motivated all to unite and become a part of the festival of democracy.
Political leaders, sportspersons as well as actors pan-India posted their pictures and videos on social media to share about the moment of pride and patriotism with their followers and well-wishers.
Popular actors, enjoying fandom across the globe, like Shah Rukh Khan and Yash also shared pics and videos in which they were seen celebrating Independence Day with their families.
In the video shared on August 14, Bollywood actor SRK is seen with his sons, Aryan and AbRam, and wife Gauri hoisting the tricolour together. The caption for the video reads, "Teaching the young ones at home the essence and sacrifice of our Freedom Fighters for our country India, will still take a few more sittings. But getting the flag hoisted by the little one made us all FEEL the pride, love and happiness instantly."

On the other hand, Rocking Star Yash shared beautiful pictures of holding the national flags. While Yash is seen holding his son Yatharv up in his arms with a national flag, his wife Radhika Pandit carried their daughter Ayra along with the tricolour.
He captioned the post, "The unparalleled pride of watching our Tiranga - the embodiment of courage, truth, and progress - Soar High 🇮🇳 Here's wishing all my fellow Indians a Happy 76th Independence Day."

Though nothing seemed to be wrong and the actors along with their family portrayed their patriotism in their own style, SRK's approach didn't go well with some of the netizens.
Some Twitterites compared his style with that of Yash and brutally trolled the Bollywood actor.
While Yash and his family were seen barefoot while holding the tricolour, SRK and his family were seen with shoes.
One of the trollers captioned, "Difference between South and Bollywood"
While another wrote, " Different Between Bollywood & South Indian Actors "

This is not the first time that some of such trollers have been targeting Bollywood actors.
Earlier, as a part of movie promotions, Yash, Ram Charan, Jr NTR, Allu Arjun, Prabhas and several other south Indian actors were seen at temples to seek blessings of the Almighty for their project's success, and pictures of some Bollywood actors went viral in which they were seen partying and showing inappropriate/offending gestures publicly.
