Ustad Amjad Ali Khan:  “Lataji’s Ae mere watan ke logon is my favourite patriotic song.”

Shabana Azmi:Kar chale him fida jaan-o-tan saathiyon is the most definitive of all the patriotic songs. It gives me gooseflesh every time I hear it. It’s written by my father Kaifi Azmi. My favourite patriotic film is Haqeeqat.”

Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra: “My favourite patriotic song is Woh subah kabhi toh aayegi from Phir Subah Hogi. My favourite patriotic film is V Shantaram’s Do Aankhen Barah Haath.The film showed social change and that’s true patriotism for me.”

Jackie Shroff: “My favourite patriotic song is Nanha munha rahi hoon desh ka sipahi hoon  from the  film Son Of India. My favourite patriotic film is Haqeeqat.

Shankar Mahadevan: “The song Ae mere pyare watan by Manna Dey from the film Kabuliawala  never fails to move me.”

Bhushan Kumar:Vande mataram is my favourite patriotic song. My favourite patriotic film is The Legend Of Bhagat Siingh.”

Apoorva Lakhia:Lataji’s Ae mere watan ke logon makes me cry. I believe it had made Pandit Nehru cry when he first heard it. Not that I am comparing myself to him…. My favourite patriotic film is J.P Dutta’s Border.”

Priyanka Chopra: “My favourite patriotic song will have to be Mile sur tera hamara.Ever time I’d see all the stalwarts of the country from Lataji to Pandit Ravi Shankar to Shabana Azmi come together on television to sing that song, I’d get goose bumps.My favourite national figure is Rajiv Gandhi. He was a lovely man and a truly remarkable visionary. He dreamt of taking India into the new millennium but couldn’t live to see that dream come true.Believe me, we haven’t even realized ten percent of our full potential as yet.”

Raveena Tandon: “I love Bharat (Manoj Kumar) in Purab Aur Pachchim and that song in the film Hai pree jahan ki reet, specially the line Jab zero diya mere bharat ne.

Boman Irani: “Without doubt my favourite patriotic song is Ae mere pyare watan by Manna Dey. I sing it all the time. It just makes me cry.It’s a song dedicated to the country. To HOME.”

Divya Dutta: “Favourite song Kar chale hum fida. Favourite film is Haqeeqat. My national hero would be Manoj Kumar for acting in and making films that represent the true spirit of India.

Alka Yagnik: Lataji’s Ae mere watan ke logon is my all-time favourite song.
Malaika Arora: “Sare jahan se achcha�.I don’t know what happens to me when I hear that song. It fills with pride for being Indian. My favourite national figure: all the freedom fighters who brought us where we are today. No doubt they’re the true heroes.

J.P Dutta: “My favourite patriotic song is Hum laayen hain toofan se kashti nikalke iss desh ko rakhna mere bachcho sambhal ke from the film Jagriti. My favourite patriotic film will have to be my own Border. And I’d say the true national figure is the The Soldier of the armed forces. He represents the true spirit of India.

Hema Malini: “My favourite patriotic songs are the antional anthem and Lataji’s Ae mere watan ke logon. And Bapuji is my favourite national figure.”

Himesh Reshammiya: “Favourite patriotic film Upkar and song Ae mere wanr ke logon. National figure? Gandhiji of course

Rahul Khanna: “I thought Chak De India was incredibly patriotic. My favourite song is predictably our national anthem. It’s a truly beautiful piece of music and verse. My favourite national figure is the Indian soldier who toils selflessly at the border to protect our country.

Diya Mirza: “My favourite song is Hemant Kumar’s Insaaf ki dagar pe from Ganga Jumna because it addresses itself to children and tells them their responsibility as Indian citizens.

I also love Vande mataram. Richard Attenborough’s Gandhi is my favourite patriotic film. I watched it when I was very young.

I realized for the first time what love for the country Bhavna Talwar: My favourite song is Ae mere pyare watan from Kabuliwala. Though many great patriotic films have been made I’d choose my own Dharm for its message of national integration at a time when rappers are singing about hatred. My favourite national figure is APJ Abdul Kalam.

Dino Morea: “Favourite patriotic film and song is Border and A R Rahman’s Ma tujhe salaam. Favourite national figure? Ummmm. Subhas Chandra Bose.Don’t ask me why. is. The national figure who evokes a deep sense of patriotism in me is Mahatma Gandhi.

Satish Kaushik: “Manoj Kumar’s Upkar�.and favourite patriotic song is Kar chale hum fida. National figure is Shah Rukh Khan in Chak De India.

Anant Mahadevan: “Kar chale hum fida from the film Haqeeqat which is also my favourite patriotic film on the Indo-China war. Very relevant to today’s politics.Will China pull the rug on us again?
