    Republic Day 2023: 5 Bollywood Biopics On Freedom Fighters

    India will mark its 74th Republic Day on 26th January. The day commemorates the adoption of the Constitution of India on January 26, 1950. Though India gained its independence from the British Raj in 1947, it wasn't until January 26, 1950, that India's constitution came into effect and it was declared a sovereign and republican nation. This could have been possible because of some brave hearts who sacrificed their lives to protect the country and its people.
