Article 370 scrapped in J&K: Bollywood reacts and rejoice

Article 370 was a black mark on our Indian constitution which has been abolished today and along with Jammu and Kashmir, the entire nation rejoices.

Our Bollywood celebrities like Ekta Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Vikrant Massey, Zaira Wasim, Raveena Tandon and Maanvi Gagroo among others took to Twitter to share their reactions.

Ekta Kapoor wrote, “It’s a radical desicion but need of the hour!! Only hope Kashmir stays safe !#historicalday”. Actor Ranvir Shorey also tweeted, “Welcome move on #Kashmir by the govt. It will go a long way in resolving the issues in the state and bring peace and prosperity to its people. Haters can go on hating. Hope the rehabilitation of Kashmiri Pandits will begin soon too.”

Dia Mirza posted on Twitter, “My thoughts are with #Kashmir. Praying for peace #KashmirNeedsAttention”. Zaira Wasim, who recently made headlines for quitting Bollywood, tweeted, “This too shall pass! #Kashmir.”

Atul Kasbekar also took to Twitter and wrote, “Time to unconditionally back the govt on this decision imo. A huge call has been taken n it needs everyone’s support now. I hope we also extend much love n every kind of support to the people of Kashmir so that they feel more n more connected over time. One India. Jai Hind.”

Vikrant Massey tweeted, “Never did I think I’d say this. But, THANK YOU! @BJP4India @AmitShah & @narendramodi It had to go! #Article370 Those warning of “dangerous consequences” SHAME ON YOU! #OneNationOneLaw”

Actor-politician Paresh Rawal wrote on Twitter, “Today is the true and complete independence of our motherland. Today in the true sense of the word INDIA becomes ONE !!! jai Hind.”

Vivek Anand Oberoi# This is the greatest homage to all those braves martyred for the dream of a United India.

Hats off and a big thank you to @narendramodi ji and @AmitShah ji from the heart of each and every patriotic Indian. #OneIndia#AkhandBharat#JaiHind

Sona Mahpatra# Status Quo on #Kashmir is done & dusted with. The region will ‘theoretically’ be treated like any other in #India .Growing up as a child of the Indian Armed Forces & having heard numerous first hand stories,this is a move I personally welcome.The band-aid ripped off. #370scrapped

Richa Chadha# Whatever happens in politics, let there be no bloodshed, let sense prevail. We’re one, all Indians. We are a peaceful people. We believe in compassion, not coercion. Be kind peeps! Jai Hind. …

Gul Panag, 370 gone!
That was an incredibly bold move.
Good luck @PMOIndia@HMOIndia

Zaira wasim# This too shall pass! #Kashmir                                                  

Atul Kasbekar# Coming days will be tough. A status quo that was massively expensive in terms of good men lost n financial drain had to give at some point. Couldn’t continue in the same manner forever

This is an extremely complex n volatile issue. Had to be a very tough call n it’s been taken.

Kangana Ranaut in a statement to the media, said, "Scrapping of Article 370 was long due, it is a historic step in the direction of terrorism-free nation, I have been emphasising on this for the longest time, and I knew if any one could achieve this impossible feat that is Mr Modi. He is not only a visionary, he has the required courage and strength of character to make unthinkable a reality ... I congratulate entire Bharat including Jammu and Kashmir on this historic day, we are together looking at a very bright future."
