Ali Fazal is one actor who is personally fond of the Urdu language and can read, write and speak it fluently. He hails from Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh and has grown up seeing the rich culture of Urdu at his home and around his hometown. Recently, the actor was invited to talk about the use and promotion of Urdu language in Hindi films at the 5th edition of Jashna-E-Rekhta, an annual three-day festival held in Dubai. However, owing to the recent horrendous attacks in Pulwana, Ali decided to pull off from the event to show his solidarity towards the Indian jawans.
Ali was in utter shock of the inhuman attacks and reached out to the organisers to express his displeasure of what transpired, and withdrew from the event.
In lieu of the attacks and the sad state of affairs in Kashmir, my heart goes to every family of the jawans. I have already called out for help whoever is out there, to not just pray and look for a better time but to be able to help the family of those jawans who lost their lives in this terrible attack. And of course to not be part of this event, at least not in these time because our country is in mourning.
A number of Bollywood actors expressed their anger and grief on Twitter and many have also donated for the families of victims.
