Bollywood has the ability to bring about a change. And when our actors take up the task of endorsing something relevant, it surely has far-flung consequences. While Diwali is all about togetherness and celebrations, our Bollywood stars know how to do things differently. After Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Aamir Khan, it was Shah Rukh Khan who came forward to send a message for the Indian soldiers on Diwali. The video clip shared by King Khan on Twitter was a part of #Sandesh2Soldiers initiative, kick-started by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. But what makes SRK’s message special, it a self-written poem he recited.

More from the world of Entertainment:


PM Modi had a few days back launched a campaign asking people from across the country to send messages for our soldiers on Diwali. The initiative attracted attention because of the emotional connect towards the soldiers who are miles away from their families, protecting the nation so that we can celebrate the festival in peace. And while wishes kept pouring in from all over the nation, including several Bollywood actors, Shah Rukh Khan is the latest to join the list. Through two Twitter posts, he shared a video clip captioned “Wishing everyone a Happy Diwali. May the Festival of Lights bring with it brightness and goodness in all our lives. Be safe and enjoy” and “I sent my #Sandesh2Soldiers. This Diwali let us all remember our soldiers!”

The video will surely leave you teary eyed!

Here is the complete text of his poem:

“I’ve written a little poem for them. Hope it reaches them.Our feet on

Our feet on carpet, their boots on ground.

Our days are steady, theirs, new challenges unravel.

Our nights blissful, theirs, stressful.

It’s our life to live because it’s theirs to give.

The heroes should not remain unsung because we can’t imagine their plight.

We grow stronger and bolder because theirs is the fight.

The fight of a soldier.”

The #Sandesh2Soldiers initiative is a follow-up of the ongoing tension between India and Pakistan. We saw how Bollywood industry remained divided on the issue of banning Pakistani actors in Indian films. But looks like when it is about supporting our jawans at the borders, it is all about consensus. They are the true heroes. Even our film heroes accept that!
