Independence Day is here, and our fav celebs are all over social media with an awesome new trend! The #SaluteSelfie movement started in honour of India’s 69th Independence Day, and as a way to pay tribute to the selfless and brave Jawans of our country.
And we have to admit that we love this! It’s a sweet gesture, yet filled with so much respect. Let’s join in and offer our own salute too!
1. Amitabh Bachchan
Senior Bachchan, after inspiring actors for many years, kickstarted yet another trend, and we totally love him for this!
2. Shah Rukh Khan
SRK impressed us when he played an army man in Jab Tak Hai Jaan, but he stole our hearts all over again with this selfie!
3. Sonakshi Sinha
The always-awesome Sonakshi was one of the first B-town ladies to follow the Big B in this trend, with a salute that is SO on point! Like everything else about her!
4. Shahid Kapoor
Trust Shahid Kapoor to make a trend like this look patriotic yet SUPER hot!
5. Priyanka Chopra
A proud “Army brat”, Priyanka just had to post an epic salute selfie of course! And while looking totally amazing too!

That smile of his is not something we can ever get over! Add this patriotic gesture, and we’re sold, all over again!

The super-cool Anil Kapoor pays a tribute to the Jawans with this super-cool picture! (Can you tell that he’s actually Sonam’s dad?! Because we still find that hard to believe!)
9. Sushmita Sen
You know when you run out of reasons to love Sushmita? Yeah...us neither. This gorgeous woman sure knows how to click a brilliant selfie!
10. MS Dhoni
The cricket legend looked nothing less than a handsome Jawan himself in his tri coloured #SaluteSelfie!
11. Sania Mirza
If it wasn't for the salute and her totally intense expression, we would have been totally obsessing over that super cool jacket! Oh, who are we kidding? We still are!
12. Aditi Rao Hydari
Aditi Rao is all smiles in her sun-kissed salute selfie! We’re totally digging how she carries off that cap too by the way.
