In Wake of Pulwama Terror Attack, ‘Total Dhamaal’ Won’t Release in Pakistan, Team Donates to CRPF Families

Bollywood is not keeping silent over the recent terror attack in Pulwama that has left the nation fuming.

Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi have cancelled their impending visit to Karachi, Ayushmann Khurrana has written a heartfelt poem for CRPF jawans and several other Bollywood celebs have come forward to financially help the situation in Kashmir and the families of the slain soldiers.

Now as an act of protest, the team of Total Dhamaal has decided to not release the film in Pakistan. Ajay Devgn took to Twitter on Monday to share the decision. “In light of the current situation the team of Total Dhamaal has decided to not release the film in Pakistan,” he tweeted.

The entire crew of the film, including the actors, has also pledged to donate Rs 50 lakh for the cause.

“In the light of the recent attacks, the makers and the actors got together to help out the families of the Pulwama martyrs. It is a sad thing to see the Indian soldiers suffer through this event and the team was keen on doing their bit to support them,” a spokesperson of the film unit said in a statement.

From Shah Rukh Khan to Aamir Khan, Indian film fraternity has condemned the “dastardly and cowardly” suicide bombing in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district on February 14 that killed 49 troopers.

Vicky Kaushal, who was last seen in URI: The Surgical Strike—a movie about India’s surgical strike in Pakistan in response to the terrorist attack in Uri in 2016, tweeted, “Deeply saddened and shocked to hear the news of the terror attack in #Pulwama. My heart goes out to the families of the brave CRPF soldiers we lost today and praying for the speedy recovery of those injured.”

Amitabh Bachchan’s spokesperson confirmed that the megastar would donate Rs 500,000 each to the families of 40 CRPF troopers.

Meanwhile, starring Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit and Arshad Warsi in pivotal roles, Total Dhamaal is slated to release on February 22.
