On 14 February, India witnessed one of the deadliest attacks in recent times on its security forces in over a decade. The Pulwama attack killed 44 CRPF jawans, leaving the country shaken.

Many Bollywood celebrities, from Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan to Akshay Kumar and Dijit Dosanjh, contributed to the families of the soldiers who died in the attack.

Union minister Kiren Rijiju took to Twitter to reveal that Salman was donating to the families of the martyrs by contributing to the Bharat Ke Veer fund through his charity, Being Human Foundation.
