One fan posted: “This is a good decision taken by #SanjayLeelaBhansali. Glorifying the bravery of our armed forces is a good thing. I say do not distort the original story and not put any songs like other ordinary movies.”
“That’s great. Please don’t put any songs in the movie. Just a suggestion,” read another post.One fan wrote: “#SanjayLeelaBhansali Good decision, Sanjay ji… my best wishes.
“Modi ji giving employment to Bollywood for sure… Bollywood biggies… go & grab topics… Article 370, Ram Mandir, Triple Talaaq, Citizen Amendment bill, Balakot… Topics milte rahenge.”
One Twitter user was, however, not amused over the issue. He wrote: “This just shows how desperate Bollywood is in making money by stirring hot topics. Looks like Bollywood producers are always waiting for a disaster to happen, waiting for our soldiers to die so they can get cash out of it. Utter shame.”
Following the killing of 40 CRPF personnel on February 14 in a bomb attack in Pulwama in then Jammu and Kashmir state, Indian Air Force undertook an airstrike in the early hours of February 26 on a Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist camp in Balakot in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
