All the celebrities of Bollywood shared their heartfelt condolences for the martyred and expressed their worries for Abhinandan’s safety. At one of the events, India Today Conclave 2019, Ranveer Singh was enquired about his views on the ban that recently was put on the artistes in Pakistan. He said, “I am very cognisant that there is this school of thought that one should not mix art and sport with it, they are two different realms. But at the same time, us as artists and sportsmen, we are not sacrificing the same way that some of our compatriots are. Art and sports are different realms. The boundaries should be different. But we are not sacrificing the way some of our compatriots are. If there’s even one mother of a soldier who believes that we shouldn’t engage, we should follow that.”
