As India celebrates its 72nd Republic Day, a host of Bollywood celebrities took to social media to wish their fans and stress upon the need to understand not just our rights but our duties as well.

Rakul Preet Singh stressed upon the need to understand our duties. She tweeted, "Happy republic day to all! I hope and pray that we understand our duties rights in true sense and exercise them to make our country an even better place to be in. Jai hind."
Suniel Shetty, too, came up with a similar message for his fans. He wrote, "It's important to know your rights, but it's equally important to respect others'. HAPPY REPUBLIC DAY #RepublicDay2021 #26January #knowyourrights #respecttherights #Constitution #constitutionofindia."
Sonu Sood, who has been changing thousands of lives with his philanthropic efforts, asked his fans to do the same. "Pledge to change a life. Happy Republic Day," he tweeted.
Meanwhile, Priyanka Chopra brought attention to the role of women leaders in governance around the world. Sharing a video highlighting many such names, she wrote, "I’d like to share an interesting piece of information I came across recently and today seems to be the perfect day to post what I learned. Did you know that there were 15 women in the first Constituent Assembly of India & that they helped draft the Constitution of India?"
She further added, "So inspiring and also an apt day to celebrate the effort of all those who helped build the fundamental principles of India. Happy Republic Day."
