To mark Gandhi Jayanti, Bollywood celebrities took to Twitter on Tuesday to commemorate the man, his life and his ideals.

From Anupam Kher, Taapsee Pannu and Manoj Bajpayee to Madhuri Dixit, actors remembered Mohan Das Karamchand Gandhi, who was born today, October 2, in 1869 in Probandar. His birth anniversary is celebrated as Gandhi Jayanti in India and as the International Day of Non-Violence across the world.

Here’s how celebs remembered Bapu:

Anupam Kher: Pujniya Bapuji. Janm tithi par aapko pranam aur shat shat naman! Aap twitter par bhale aap keval aaj ya 30 january ko trend karte ho. Par aap bhartiyo ke dilon main 15, August 1947 se trend kar rahe ho! Isliye toh Mahatma Gandhi ho. Tension mat lena… Choti moti problems hain par desh acha chal raha hai.

(Dear Bapuji. Gratitude on your birth anniversary. You may trend on Twitter only today or on January 30th, but you trend in every Indian’s heart since 1947. That is why you are Mahatma Gandhi. Don’t take too much tension. We have small problems but the country is doing good.)

Madhuri Dixit: Remembering the man whose life is an inspiration not just for our country but the entire world! His vision of truth and nonviolence should always live on, through us! #GandhiJayanti

Manoj Bajpayee: Ahimsa parmo dharm, Gandhi Jayanti ke shubh avsar par bapu ko shat shat naman aur sabhi desh vasiyo ko shubhkamnaye. (My tributes to Bapu on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti and good wishes to all Indians.)

Taapsee Pannu: “Hate the sin, not the sinner” MK Gandhi. Gandhi Jayanti

Swara Bhasker: Mahatma Gandhi more relevant for India than ever before! Gandhi Jayanti.

Raveena Tandon: Remembering our Father of the Nation on his birth anniversary. Just want to wish for peace, humanity, love and happiness today! Happy Gandhi Jayanti to everyone.
