As India waits with bated breathe to welcome their hero, Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, Bollywood celebrities have already started celebrating and cheering his return.
Indian Air Force (IAF) Wing Commander, Abhinandan Varthaman was held captive by the Pakistan Army since Wednesday, after his aircraft crashed on the other side of LoC during aerial combat between the two countries.
Since then, the nation has been praying for his safety and for him to come back home, as Bollywood's King Khan, Shah Rukh Khan said, "There is no better feeling than coming back home."
Looks like people's prayers were finally heard on Thursday, when Pakistan PM Imran Khan announced that Varthaman will be released today as a 'gesture of peace'. People have already gathered in huge crowds at the Attari-Wagah border to welcome their hero, who is expected to return to India shortly.
From Shah Rukh Khan, Varun Dhawan, Karan Johar to Preity Zinta; everyone is praising Varthaman for his valour and courage and praying for his safe return.March 1, 2019
