Bollywood celebrities pray safe return for Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman
Indian Air Force on Tuesday early morning took the revenge of Pulwama terror attack that claimed the lives of 40 CRPF jawans. Indian Air Force crossed the border and dropped 1000 kgs of laser explosives on terror camps in Pakistan’ Balakot and eliminated around 300 terrorists of Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM). After facing massive humiliation across the world, Pakistan responded to India’s counter-terror strike and targeted military installations on the Indian side. Alert IAF gave a befitting reply and shot down one Pakistani fighter jet. Unfortunately, during counter operations, due to the technical snag, one fighter jet crashed and Pakistani forces arrested Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman. While Indian authorities warned Pakistan and demanded Abhinandan’s safe release, Bollywood celebrities prayed for his safe return.
Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman
Bollywood actors and filmmakers including Arjun Kapoor, Karan Johar, Diljit Dosanjh, Swara Bhasker, Emraan Hashmi, Anupam Kher, Sushmita Sen, Arjun Rampal, Taapsee Pannu, Huma Qureshi, Renuka Shahane, R. Madhavan, Vishal Dadlani, Nimrat Kaur, Kriti Sanon and Ranveer Singh took to their Twitter and wished for the safe return of the IAF pilot.

यह असीम, निज सीमा जाने,
सागर भी तो यह पहचाने
ईस मिट्टी के पुतले मानव ने कभी न मानी हार,
तूफानों की ओर घुमा दो नाविक निज पतवार।

Heartbreaking yet thought provoking the images of our #WingCommanderAbhinandan captured by Pakistani army. Yes emotions run high, yet all one can wonder, Is war really the road to peace here? Just pray that Abhinandan returns home peacefully and safe.
