Abhishek Bachchan travelled to Kargil to pay tribute to the war heroes ahead of Vijay Diwas on July 26 and met with the soldiers. He surprised the soldiers with ‘Gajar Ka Halwa’ and ‘Aam Ras’ cooked by his wife Aishwarya Rai and mother Jaya Bachchan.
Abhishek recited the famous poem ‘Agnipath’ composed by his late grandfather Harivansh Rai Bachchan to the gathering of soldiers. He also told them that he acted in the film “LOC Kargil” and so he has a fair idea of the hardships and courage of the soldiers in the Kargil war.
The actor was taken around some of the actual locations where the actual war was fought. He assured the soldiers of the continued support of the entire Bollywood to them and their welfare.
