With all of India celebrating 20 years of Kargil Vijay Diwas today, Bollywood cannot be left behind.

Several celebrities took to their social media to celebrate the historic day and pay tribute to the brave-hearts who got killed in ensuring that India wins Kargil War’s Operation Vijay.

Leading the pack, Akshay Kumar shared on Instagram a video of a group of army men singing a patriotic song. “Came across this heart-warming video which made my day. When your small tribute reaches the people it’s meant for...what more can you ask for? A million salutes to our #BharatKeVeer,” he wrote alongside.

In yet another post, Akshay shared a picture of himself posing with Shiv Aroor and Rahul Singh’s book India’s Most Fearless 2. “I’m not much into books, but today as we pay tribute to our brave martyrs on 20 years of #KargilVijayDiwas, I’ve picked up #IndiasMostFearless 2 by #ShivAroor& #RahulSingh . May we never forget our soldiers whose courage and heroism lets us live in peace, day after day (sic),” he captioned it.

Vicky Kaushal thanked the Maharashtra government for re-releasing his film Uri: The Surgical Strike on the occasion. In another Instagram Story, he shared the victorious image of the soldiers clicked after they won the war.

Remembering the departed, Virat Kohli tweeted, “We will never forget all the sacrifices you made for us. Respect, Love, Salute. #JaiHind #KargilVijayDiwas.”
