As India is celebrating its 76th Independence Day today, superstar Salman Khan took to Instagram to extend warm greetings to everyone on the historic occasion. He shared a picture of himself hoisting the national flag while he posed with Indian Navy officers. “Wishing everyone a very happy 75th Independence Day( 75 years of Independence).. Jai Hind,” Salman wrote. For the occasion, the actor donned white shirt and paired it with black trousers and black cap.
A few days ago, Salman took a day off from work to spend some time with the sailors in Visakhapatnam. From hearing about their lives, training, time away from loved ones, seeing the state-of-the-art vessel, cooking on the ship to doing push-up challenges, signing autographs, and hoisting the Indian flag, Salman had a fun-filled day with the members of the Indian Navy.
This is not the first time that Salman visited the Indian Navy. In 2014, Salman spent Independence Day with the Naval officers in Goa. Talking about his love for the armed forces, he even played the role of a naval officer in his movie ‘Bharat’ in which he starred opposite Katrina Kaif.
