February 26 began with the news of surgical strike by Indian Air Force on Pakistan’s terrorist camps in Balakot which were completely destroyed in the attack. Many Bollywood, South Indian celebrities took to social media to express their opinion on this reply by India to Pakistan in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack where more than 40 CRPF jawans were killed in a suicide bombing by a Jaish-E-Mohammed terrorist.
The attack by the Indian Air Force was done in the wee hours of the morning with 12 Mirage fighter planes that dropped bombs on the terrorist camps in Pakistan. After the Pulwama attack, the Indian Government had seen the nation’s anger and this attack was a non-military pre-emptive action by the IAF. Now, popular TV celebs right from Kapil Sharna, Divyanka Tripathi, Karanvir Bohra to Ekta Kapoor also shared their opinion on social media.

Meanwhile, after the IAF air strike news broke on the Internet, several users on Twitter used the popular dialogue "How's the josh?" from the latest release "Uri: The Surgical Strike", a cinematic take on what went behind the surgical strikes that India conducted on terror camps in Pakistan in 2016, just days after terrorists from Pakistan attacked a military base in Uri in Jammu and Kashmir leaving 19 Indian soldiers dead.
