It's Kargil Vijay Diwas today on July 26, 2018, and a lot of Bollywood celebrities took to Twitter to salute the Indian soldiers for their hardwork and sacrifice in securing our border and also paid a tribute to the martyrs. On this day, in 1999, the Indian soldiers successfully took command of the high outposts, which had been lost to the Pakistani intruders and hoisted the tricolour on a cliff and defeated Pakistan in the war.
Bollywood stars such as Hema Malini, Abhishek Bachchan, Preity Zinta, Taapsee Pannu and various others marked the success of Kargil Day and held the Operation Vijay in high regards. Here's what they tweeted...
