On Republic Day, Bollywood beauties tell us about their favourite patriotic songs and why it evokes a sense of pride in them.

Shazahn Padamsee
My favourite patriotic song is Ae Mere Watan Ke Logo. I love this song sung by Lata Mangeshkar. It always makes me nostalgic and I feel very patriotic every time I listen to it. The track is a constant reminder of the fact that I owe my freedom to our freedom fighters.

Kainaz Motivala
Ae Mere Watan Ke Logo by Lata Mangeshkar, who has sung the song beautifully, inevitably brings tears to my eyes. It’s a wonderful song and reminds us that we should pay homage to the soldiers who risk their lives for us every day, while we sit comfortably in our homes.

Soha Ali Khan
I love AR Rahman’s version of our national song, Vande Mataram. I think the lyrics are simply great and I feel highly motivated whenever I listen to the song. Over all, the track is a personal inspiration and is undoubtedly my most loved patriotic song.

Geeta Basra
My favourite patriotic song is Ae Mere Watan Ke Logo. It touches my soul. At a recent visit to the Wagah border, I saw the entire parade and the retreat ceremony and at that moment, this was the only song which resounded through my mind. It was a very proud moment for me.

Eesha Koppikhar
The song, Bharat Humko Jaan Se Pyaara Hai from the film Roja, is my absolute favourite patriotic number. The composition is thought provoking and it never fails to rekindle the patriotic spirit. I think the track is simply beautiful and will always continue to be my favourite.

Sameera Reddy
Ma Tujhe Salaam/ Vande Mataram by AR Rahman is by far the best patriotic song that I have heard. The composition is a soulful tribute to mother India and it helps me to connect to my roots, apart from infusing a feeling of being proud as an Indian.

Minissha Lamba
On Republic Day, one song that cannot be left out is Mere Desh Ki Dharti. Its a beautiful and lively track from the film Upkar. Whenever I listen to the song, it gives me goosebumps. The lyrics evoke a feeling of pride, patriotism and courage.
