With the 66th Republic Day right around the corner, a few celebrities have shared their thoughts on the occasion, and have pledged to make India clean and green, in tune with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's campaign.

Here is what they gushed about for Republic Day:

Vishal Singh: On this Republic Day, I want to thank all those soldiers who sacrificed their lives for our nation. We actors are called 'heroes'' but according to me they are the actual heroes. I sincerely want to acknowledge and salute them and their families for all that they've done for our nation. I pledge to give credit to those who deserve credit in their respective fields.

Meghna Malik: The ceremonious parades, the Beating Retreat fill my heart with pride. But is it just another day of festivities on the calendar? Where does the pride go when we see our leaders misbehave in the parliament?  We as a country have very many challenges to meet before we can be a true Republic. Our hope lies in staying united and being responsible and I pledge for the same.

Ssharad Malhotra: The Republic Day reminds me of school parade. It also reminds me of the struggle of our warriors for freedom. I pledge never to jump signals and never litter the road. India should be a clean country.

Aniruddh Dave: It reminds me of college festivities in Jaipur. The NCC parade used to be the highlight. I pledge to never contribute in noise pollution be it on the road or at home and I will not tolerate any injustice in front of my eyes.

Sudhir Sharma (producer): The march on Rajpath reflects great harmony. I pledge to keep my city clean and not to create any noise pollution.
