As billions of Indians world over celebrated India’s 63rd Independence Day yesterday (15th August), our B-town stars were also not far behind. The annual Independence Day parade held in New York saw actresses Preity Zinta and Sridevi representing their nation. Amidst thousands of screaming fans, Preity, looking pretty in a pink salwar kameez, performed her Grand Marshal duties. The actress with the million dollar smile flashed her pearly whites as she held the tri-colour aloft. Preity even tweeted, "Felt so proud 2 be Indian at d independence day parade in NYC ! It was d biggest parade ever & d people were awesome!" Besides Preity, actress Sridevi was also spotted at the gala parade. The actress, who still has a huge fan following, waved to the cheering crowd amidst loud cheers. Surely, this was one gala Independence Day celebration in the Big Apple.
