Megastar Amitabh Bachchan changed the profile pictures of his social media into National flag to pay tribute to the soldiers killed in Pathankot terror attack.

Amitabh Bachchan, 73, said he did the same because when Paris attack happened, the French changed their display picture to their National flag.

Quoting a fan’s post, he wrote, “An FB follower wrote a most pertinent matter: ‘When Paris attack happened the French changed their DP to their national flag…’ I HAVE DONE TOO TODAY after our attack!!” (Pathankot: They came back to kill me, but I untied my hands and fled, says abducted Gurdaspur SP

The “Piku” star, who is currently shooting for an upcoming film in Kolkata, said the “disturbed World affairs” have affected him a lot.

“The pain of killings and death of our brave heart soldiers… Of the destruction by nature from the morning earthquake in the North Eastern region of our land, close by to where we are now… (Pathankot witness account: Terrorists spoke to commander on phone, called team leader Major

“The disturbed World affairs… The weeping and the distress of the families of those lost forever… The anger and outrage, the raised voices and concerns of the common us… The anguish of what we live in and what we shall leave behind for ours..DISTRESSING, DESOLATE AND DISMAL.. Why ..??!!!” (Pics: Thousands pay respect to NSG officer Lt Col Niranjan Kumar)

      Jai Hind! It is good of Big B that the National Flag is portra at this time when our soldiers have sacrificed their lives for our Motherland. I live in London and every time I speak to a Indian starts with Jai Hind! Our country is bigger than all of us. I respect the pion of Shri Amitabh Harivansh Rai Bachchan. The awareness of use of our National Flag must be done at all levels. We started the awareness training of Indian National Flag in Maharastra,Bihar and Odisha with school children and hope to make it a National Awareness programme. Jai Hind ! Jai Bharat !
