As India celebrated its 76th Independence Day on Monday, several young celebrities from Sri Lanka extended their warm greetings to the nation.

A video was posted on Youth Celebrity Forum's YouTube account in which young musicians, actors and filmmakers from Sri Lanka could be seen marking the 75 years of India's independence by hailing the relationship between the two counties.

"We together fought against the British empire for our freedom and we won. I feel we (Sri Lanka and India) are one, we share the same roots, same culture and we are connected in all ways. We share the same spiritual brotherhood. Freedom is something we had to fight for and the time has come to celebrate the fact that we still have our freedom and we should never let go of it," singer-actor Devnaka Porage said.

Musician Hashini Wedanda thanked India for always supporting Sri Lanka.

"India and Sri Lanka are connected, We are forever grateful that you have our back...Wishing you a very happy Independence Day," she said.

Hailing the ties between Sri Lanka and India, singer Ishini Thamodya Jayathilake said, "India holds an important relationship with mother Sri Lanka. India, a very happy Independence Day."
