Shah Rukh Khan feels 'eternally grateful' as he welcomes back IAF Pilot Abhinandan


The tension between India and Pakistan reached a breaking point three days back. On Tuesday, India conducted air strikes in Pakistan’s Balakot as a response to the Pulwama terror attack on February 14. The next day, the Indian government confirmed that an Indian Air Force MiG-21 was shot down by Pakistan, and the pilot, Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, is currently in Pakistan custody. But now, Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman is returning home and the entire nation awaits his return.

Amidst this, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan welcomed him home by tweeting, "There is no better feeling than Coming back Home, for home is the place of love, hope & dreams. Ur bravery makes us stronger. Eternally grateful."
