Bollywood celebrities express grief on Twitter over Dr. Kalam’s death


After the tragic passing away of Bharat Ratna APJ Abdul Kalam, celebrities took to Twitter to pay homage to the former Indian President. The nation is mourning the death of the ‘Missile Man of India’, who died after collapsing during his lecture at the Indian Institute of Management in Shillong.

The whole Bollywood industry descended into gloom soon after the sad news arrived.

Dr. Kalam was one of India’s most respected visionaries along with being one of the world’s best nuclear scientists. He also played a key role as operational in-charge of the 1998 Pokharan-II Tests before serving the country as President during 2002 to 2007.

A lot of people remember him as the man who transformed the Indian presidency during his tenure by making the Rashtrapati Bhawan much more accessible.

A 7-days mourning period was declared following news of Dr. Kalam’s death on Monday. Many important dignitaries including the Prime Minister are expected to attend the former President’s last rites scheduled to be held in Rameshwaram on Wednesday.
