A string of Bollywood celebrities like Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha and Suniel Shetty took to social media to salute pilots of the Indian Air Force (IAF) following reports that they crossed the Line of Control (LoC) with their fighter jets and returned after dropping a payload in Pakistan.
Earlier on Tuesday, Pakistan claimed that the IAF fighter jets dropped the payload near Balakot in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and returned in haste after the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) scrambled its war planes.
Here's what the celebrities have tweeted
