Days after getting entangled in a controversy with her co-actor Babushaan's family, actress Prakruti Mishra, extended best wishes to her fans as India celebrated the 75 years of achieving Independence on Monday.

Sharing a video on her Instagram page, Prakruti wrote, “Saare Jahan Se Acha. Happy Independence day to everyone. Jai Hind. #HarGharTiranga #IndependenceDay #India.”



In no time, the video garnered over 12.8K likes and thousands of comments. Fans also extended her best wishes and posted comments on the video.

A fan wrote, “Happy Independence Day. You always looking Pretty. #Odisha best heroine.”

Another wrote, “Happy Independence Day.”

However, another user slammed her and commented, “Dikhawa.”

Worth mentioning, the actress has flown back to Mumbai and has started her work life afresh. If reports are to be believed, she has three Bollywood projects including a Nana Patekar-starrer movie in her kitty. Moreover, she is all set to entertain audience in Odia movie Draupadi.



Sharing poster of the movie in her Instagram account, she wrote “Used, abused and misused, every woman has been assaulted, harassed or humiliated, through the ages. It is time to raise our voice together and say every time it is not a woman's fault! The story of every girl with Prakruti Mishra in and as ‘DRAUPADI’.”

Speaking on the movie, Prakruti said, “The movie is a modern day rendition of an age-old story. The story revolves around a middle class girl who gets used, abused and misused by men around her. Some she knows and she loves and some just want to break her down. They try to assault, harass and humiliate women but women will always keep rising from the ashes like Phoenixes. This is a story to make a movie for women by women. We hope to make at least one woman feel empowered and give her the courage to raise her voice against any injustice.”

“This movie has Prakruti Mishra in the titular character and I think none is better suited for this. She is a tremendous performer and one who has always stood up for women and their empowerment. She is a fighter and this movie is her fight,” said Ananya Pattnaik, the director of 'Draupadi' praising Prakruti’s talent.
