Remembering the Shaheed
Some martyrs are immortal. They live forever in the memory of the people for whom they made the ultimate sacrifice -- of life. Bhagat Singh, the Indian freedom fighter and one of the most influential revolutionaries of India’s Independence struggle against the British is still remembered even eighty years after he was executed at the gallows at the age of 23.
23rd March 1931 remains a date when three Indian revolutionaries, Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev were hanged in Lahore jail by the British. Their tale has been recreated in Hindi films time and again. Actors like Shammi Kapoor, Manoj Kumar, Ajay Devgan, Bobby Deol and Siddharth have played Bhagat Singh on the silver screen.
Today, on the 80th death anniversary of Bhagat Singh, we bring you a tribute of how the martyr has been remembered in Hindi films.
