For many, it is just a public holiday for them to enjoy and plan a family outing if it is falling on a day, which is followed by a long weekend. The importance of the day, 15th August 1947, is lost on the people of our country. However, there are some mediums which still manage to keep alive the spirit of the day in their own sweet way. One such medium which showcases the patriotism flavor is television.
Many of the channels compete in the race to be ahead of each other in telecasting some of the best shows related to Independence Day. This year too is no different, with a variety of shows lined up for the viewers on various channels.
‘Life OK’ tops the list, with its celebrations already having started since 12th of August itself and to be continued till the 15th of August. It has conceptualized a special show titled “Azaadi Ka Jashn”. Various celebrities will be performing for the said show, namely, singer Mika, actress Neha Dhupia and Riddhi Dogra.
