This morning, India woke up to good news as the Indian Air Force pulled a surgical strike in Balakot on the camps of terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed. Reportedly, 12 Mirage 2000 fighter jets of the Indian Air Force dropped 1000 kg explosives on the camps. This surely reminds us of the surgical strike that happened in 2016. This year we saw a movie based on the strike titled Uri: The Surgical Strike. Kirti Kulhari played one of the most prominent characters in this film. The actress portrayed the character of Captain Seerat Kaur, an Indian Air Force officer. Her performance impressed one and all. She has now spoken up about the strike that took place last night and the actress feels extremely proud of the Indian Army.
Kirti said, “This air strike comes as a very pleasant surprise to me, considering the discreet nature of it was maintained amidst so much media attention and commotion. All eyes were on the government which I am sure put them under a lot of pressure to respond to the Pulwama attack appropriately without getting carried away with the emotions of the whole nation. We have managed to strike again and I feel extremely proud of the Indian Air Force for carrying out this very difficult mission successfully. Kudos to the entire team. Having said that, we are living in extremely difficult and testing times and every action is bound to have a strong consequence and so we should be ready for anything and everything, which I am are already being taken care of. I urge everyone to not just take care of themselves but do everything in our capacity as a nation, to support each other and believe in the efficiency of the government and the entire security system of this country. Jai Hind.”
We are sure just like Kirti the whole nation is feeling proud of our Indian Air Force.
