'Ur bravery makes us stronger': Shah Rukh Khan welcomes Abhinandan to India
New Delhi : IAF Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman has been returned to India at the Wagah-Attari border, two days after being captured by Pakistan during an intense aerial. The Wing Commander’s family reached Delhi from Chennai last evening. The nation is welcoming Abhinandan homecoming and Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan shared a tweet about his welcome.
