B-Town welcomes the real HERO

Indian Pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman was taken into custody by Pakistani forces. The commander was lynched by a mob before the Pakistani Army took him into their custody.

Celebrities from various sections of music industry expressed their delight over Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot’s safe return. The international singing sensation who is not only popular for her contribution to the music industry, but also for being vocal about various social issues paid tribute to the real life ‘Hero’ by dedicating a beautiful self-writen poetry tittled “Welcome Home Brother” on the auspicious occasion.

Eternally grateful. He was handed over by Pakistan at Wagah Border Yesterday. With the rest of India, Bollywood celebrities like Shah Rukh Khan, Ranveer Singh, Varun Dhawan and Dia Mirza and others also welcomed Abhinandan.

Here's what the celebrities have tweeted.
