Preity Zinta: Americans are shocked that a 65-year-old MiG 21 shot down an F16
Tensions escalated between Indian and Pakistan after Indian Air Force (IAF) launched an air strike in retaliation to the Pulwama terror attack. In response, the Pakistani Air Force targeted military installations on the Indian side on Wednesday. Thanks to the alert IAF, who gave a befitting reply to Pakistan and forced PAF to go back. During the operation, Indian Air Force’s Wing Commander Abhinandan’s jet crashed and he was arrested by Pakistani forces. But before that, Abhinandan’s MiG 21 had shot down Pakistan’s F-16 fighter jet. Isn’t it great? While it’s a great new for Indians, Americans are shocked to hear this. The news of Americans being shocked was shared by none other than our beloved actress Preity Zinta.
Taking to a Twitter, Preity said that the Americans are shocked to hear that a 65-year-old Russian MiG 21 shot down an American made F16 at the India-Pak border.
