The Pulwama terror attacks that shook the country is bringing out reactions in waves as the citizens vow not to forget and forgive this time around. While those in power plan a befitting revenge, those on the backend come together to stand up and support the bereaved families of the victims. In lieu of the emotions back home, the cast and crew of Street Dancer 3D, who are currently in London for their shoot observed two minutes of silence as they remembered the brave-hearts who lost their lives in the suicide bombing at Pulwama in Kashmir, India and claimed the lives of at least 40 CRPF jawans.
Devastated at the deadly terror attack in Pulwama district, director Remo Dsouza along with his team comprising of actors Varun Dhawan, Shraddha Kapoor and choreographers Raghav Juyal, Salman Yusuf Khan, Shashank Dogra, Pravin and others collected together, on Saturday, on their sets in London and paid their respect to those martyred. As other celebrities took to their social media accounts to express their grief and outcry, Raghav shared a picture in which the cast and crew of the upcoming movie can be seen standing with their arms folded and eyes closed as they prayed for the families of the victims. Sharing the picture from London, with the caption “Jai Hind,” the post carried another image in army colours which read “WE WILL NOT FORGET. WE WILL NOT FORGIVE – CRPF ON PULWAMA TERROR ATTACK.”
Many Bollywood celebrities have come forward to condemn the attack. Recently, actor Janhvi Kapoor has slammed a Pakistani daily that reported the attack as ‘a fight for freedom’ and hailed the suicide bomber as ‘valiant’. Taking to Instagram, she wrote a long post and slammed the propagandist article.
The Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) claimed responsibility for the horror and released a video clip of the suicide bomber, a ‘commander’ identified as Adil Ahmad Dar, which it claimed was shot before the young man carried out the strike in Lethpora, about 30 km from Srinagar.
