Actress Neha Dhupia tweeted: "Throwback to the time I was fortunate enough to take a trip to #Kargil and the #lineofcontrol ... remembering our heroes who laid their lives down to save the Nation and us... nothing makes me more proud than being the daughter of a fauji."
Taapsee Pannu wrote, "21 yrs and the memories are clear. Sitting in front of the TV for hours to know if it's all over or no if we have our soldiers safe or no if we have redeemed our land or no. What followed was a victory for our country and irreparable loss for the families of martyrs #KargilVijayDiwas."
