Akshay Kumar, Salman and Aamir Khan have sent wishes for Indian Army. Have you?
Trust Bollywood to take the lead when it comes to sending Diwali wishes to Indian soldiers. When Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked his fellow countrymen to show gratitude to Indian soldiers by sending them Diwali greetings, some of the most prompt responses have come from Bollywood: While Akshay Kumar recorded a video message for the soldiers on Tuesday, both Salman and Aamir Khan shared the PM’s video with their wishes for the Indian army.
“This Diwali, let us remember our courageous armed forces who constantly protect our Nation. Jai Hind. I sent my #Sandesh2Soldiers. You could also do the same. Your wishes will certainly make our forces very happy,” Modi had written in his Facebook post on Monday.
Wishing a happy Diwali to all, Dabangg star Salman Khan shared his #Sandesh2soldiers on Facebook.
Akshay Kumar shared a video on his Facebook page in which he lauded PM Modi for the initiative and thanked the soldiers for doing their job. “The best way to celebrate a festival is with your loved ones and the good luck of spending festivals with our families is because of you (soldiers). Without even knowing us, you love us and keep us safe,” he said in the video.
Interestingly, this is not the first time Akshay has taken the lead in sending his wishes for Indian soldiers. Earlier this month, the Baby actor released a video to pay his tribute to the martyrs of Uri attack. He was also among the few Bollywood A-listers who spoke on the controversy around banning Pakistani artistes in India, and said we should think of the Indian Army and not the ban on artistes.
Appreciating the intiative by PM Modi, Aamir Khan shared the video and thanked soldiers.
The stars are leading the way, have you sent your wish for the soldiers yet?
