Making India proud on Australian soil, actor Abhishek Bachchan and former Indian captain Kapil Dev will hoist the Indian tricolour at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne(IFFM). The act is to mark the 75th Independence day and what better way to see the Indian flag waving high on foreign soil. 

Abhishek, who will be there at IFFM as one of the key guests, says it is a huge honour for him to be invited to participate in the celebration of cinema. “It gives me great honour to be a part of the 75th year celebrations of Indian Independence in Melbourne. It’s a matter of pride for me to hoist the Indian National Flag in the iconic Federation Square. It’s an event where Indians from all across Australia, from all different backgrounds, will come together to celebrate India at 75. This is a mark of the friendship between Australia and India. To share this platform with Kapil Sir is momentous for me and the event is also a mark of the coming together of Cinema and Cricket, two things that have often united us Indians together. Looking forward to celebrating India, Indians and the spirit of our country amongst hundreds of people who will be in attendance to celebrate this landmark moment and event,” he said.
