Here's what they have to say.

A belligerent Bollywood has lapped up Indian claims of carrying out ‘surgical strikes’ across the Line of Control — assertions categorically rejected by Pakistan.

Industry heavyweights Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan were among the scores of Indians who jumped on the bandwagon. Read what they had to say here.

Akshay Kumar, Farhan Akhtar, Ajay Devgn, Sidharth Malhotra, Varun Dhawan, Sajid Khan, Raveena Tandon, Arjun Rampal, Riteish Dehmukh, Preity Zinta and Sunny Deol also fell for the Indian Army assertions.

Seems Bollywood is in no mood to cross check facts. “India’s claims of surgical strikes are baseless,” DG ISPR Asim Bajwa said in a recent statement. “There has been no surgical strike by India, instead there had been cross border fire initiated and conducted by India,” it reads. The military’s media wing added, “As per rules of engagement same was strongly and befittingly responded by Pakistani troops.”

“This quest by Indian establishment to create media hype by re-branding cross-border fire as surgical strike is fabrication of truth,” the statement said. “Pakistan has made it clear that if there is a surgical strike on Pakistani soil, same will be strongly responded,” it went on to warn.

    Actors from across the border are saying the same thing . these people should show restraint . they have millions of fans and followers who listen to them blindly. On both sides , they let loose their tongues carelessly. Recommend

    When you use the words “laps up”, it sounds as if they were fooled. Well, readers everywhere lap up what they read in the papers, right? Or guys actually need to see everything first hand in order o “lap up” stuff? Did the Pakistanis not “lap up” cross border firing? Think about it! Ans I sincerely hope Indians continue the good work; and our enemies “lap up” cross border firing.Recommend
