PM replied to Tweets of Bollywood celebrities in support of ISRO

India's second installment of its moon mission, Chandrayan 2, failed to have a successful landing at the moon's surface after the communication was lost with Vikram Lander. In these disappointing times, everybody stood solid with ISRO and congratulated the team for its efforts. Like PM Modi said there are no failures and only experiments in science.

In these moments of disappointment Prime Minister's gesture to console ISRO chief K Sivan while the latter broke down melted our hearts. Madhur Bhandarkar tweeted the clip of PM consoling ISRO chief and wrote Touched to see@narendramodi ji comforting & encouraging everyone at@isro. As an Indian we are all super proud of our scientists, engineers and technicians involved in the #Chandrayaan2 project. Jai Hind. Replying to the Tweet PM Modi wrote “Don’t we often say India is a family? Warm words and support is what a family is all about. Indeed, we are proud of @isro and our scientists.”

Sonam Kapoor termed the picture of PM consoling Sivan as 'heartening', replying to Sonam's tweet the Prime Minister wrote ‘Hardwork and dedication has made @isro a pioneer in space technology and the same passion will continue to ensure they scale newer heights.”

He also replied to filmmaker Shekhar Kapoor's tweet of the picture where PM is seen giving a warm hug to Sivan

Reverting to a Tweet by Anushka Sharma, in which the actress admired the hard work, perseverance, and achievements of ISRO, PM Tweeted    “Indeed, we are proud of our scientists. @isro has inspired thousands of young minds to take up science and that is a victory on its own. @AnushkaSharma.  

The communication with lander vikram was lost at 2.1 km from the lunar surface. After it was successfully separated from Chandrayan 2 orbiter on September 2. Chandrayan 2 began its journey to moon on August 14
