I have a document library, and a folder inside it.

When i modified a document inside that folder or add a new document to that folder, the modified date of the folder should change(update).

Originally it wont change as i am not making and changes to the folder but

Is there any simple way to achieve this?

A simple hack could be to add a separate column (custom_modified_date) to the document library and whenever a file is added/updated execute a workflow (Microsoft Flow if you are using SharePoint online) and update the date in your custom modified date column.
