New Delhi: Ahead of the 75th Independence Day, actor Satish Shah took to social media to post a picture of him holding the national flag. The actor claimed that the flag was the one his mother had ‘got during the Quit India Movement in 1942’. However, the Internet made a ruckus over it as they were not convinced with Shah’s details about the flag and pointed out a grievous discrepancy. The netizens stated that the flag did not exist in that form in 1942.

The actor shared the picture on Twitter where he can be seen holding the flag. Sharing the image, he captioned, “The very same TIRANGA DHWAJ my mother had got during Quit India Movement 1942.”

Take a look at the post here:

Netizens fact-checked and stated that the national flag did not exist in the form in 1942. One of the users wrote, “Who will tell him, this flag didn’t exist, in this form, in 1942?” while another wrote, “A little bit of research & due diligence would have saved you the embarrassment of being proven wrong.”

Now the national flag has Ashok Chakra, however, there used to be a charkha symbol in the middle. Just a few days before India became independent on 15 August 1957, a modified version of the Swaraj flag was chosen. The tricolour – saffron, white, and green remained the same while the charkha was replaced by the Ashoka Chakra.

Satish Shah is an Indian television and film actor. He is known for his works in Jaane bhi Do Yaaro (1983), Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi (1984), Sarabhai vs Sarabhai (2004), Main Hoon Na (2004), Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003), Fanaa (2006) and Om Shanti Om (2007).
