It has been over a week now since the Pulwama terror attack took place. The incident is being touted as one of the worst attacks in Jammu & Kashmir since 1989, which costed the life of around 40 CRPF jawans and injured several others. While the entire nation is in a state of anger and pain, B-town celebrities are also standing up against this inhuman act. Several Bollywood stars donated money for the welfare of the families of the martyred soldiers. In the meantime, several filmmakers withdrew the release of their films in Pakistan. And now, actress Vidya Balan has opened up about the same and has said that a strong stand should be taken now.

As per a report in Times of India, the ‘Parineeta’ actress said, “Though I have always believed that art should be kept away from all boundaries and politics, I think we have to take a stand now. Enough is enough.”

The actress further added, “As an individual, I believe that there is no better way to bring people together than arts, be it music, poetry, dance, theatre, cinema or any other art form. But this time I think we should just take a break from this practice and see what can be done for the future. As I said, some tough calls have to be taken at some point.”

Previously, actors including Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan and others took to social media to condemn the attack and pay tribute to the martyred soldiers.

On the work front, Vidya Balan will be seen next in ‘Mission Mangal’ along with other films releasing down South.
