After the government confirmed yesterday that Indian Air Force pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman is missing in action, the entire country has been praying for his safe return. Pakistan also released a video, that was highly criticised by the Indian government, showing the blood masked and blindfolded braveheart in their custody. Everyone on the mainstream media as well as social media has been condemning this move of Pakistan and demanding a safe return of the IAF pilot.
Celebrities from the film fraternity also took to Twitter to pray for the safe return of the real-life hero. Check out what Amitabh Bachchan, Ranveer Singh, Hrithik Roshan and other celebrities shared on Twitter.

The Indian Air Force conducted air strikes at terrorist camps in Pakistan's Balakot in the early morning of 26th February, after which the Pakistan Air Force responded by carrying out air strikes across the LOC. The IAF lost a MIG-21 in this retaliation. The government later confirmed that Wing Commander Abhinandan who was in the fighter plane was missing.
According to the latest updates, the Indian government is not willing to negotiate with the Pak government and want their pilot back "at all costs". We pray for the safe return of our real-life hero.
