It has been 10 years since the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack happened, the dark memories of shooting and killing of innocent people by terrorists still flicker alive. The Hindi film fraternity on Monday paid tribute to those who sacrificed their lives.

Producer Ronnie Screwvala and makers of upcoming film “Uri”, based on the Uri attack of September 2016, showed their respect to all those martyred on that day by observing silence across 300 radio stations all over India on Monday morning.

As many as 164 people were killed and over 300 injured after an attack masterminded by the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba was orchestrated in Mumbai on November 26, 2008.

On the tenth anniversary of the attack, Bollywood celebrities like Abhishek Bachchan and Varun Dhawan paid tribute to the victims and martyrs and said it’s a day that can’t be forgotten.

Here’s how celebrities remembered the day via Twitter:

Abhishek Bachchan: Never forget! – ABhishekh. 26/11

Varun Dhawan: Will never forget 26/11. We have only grown stronger. Mumbaikar. Jai Hind.

Kubbra Sait: Hosted the Memorial last year for the 26/11 attacks, standing there alongside the dignitaries I felt gooseflesh as we proudly together sang the Indian National Anthem. This is a day Mumbai stood together (again) and this encapsulates the spirit of the city.

Arjun Kapoor: Remembering our heroes of 26/11. Everyone who helped each other through the tough time. My heart goes out to their courage and sacrifice and for all the innocent victims.

Vishal Dadlani: 26/11. We will never forget. What has changed since, Mumbai? Are we any safer? We were promised Police Reforms, counter-terrorism training and modern equipment for a woefully understaffed and underpaid Mumbai Police Force. Seen any?

Aftab Shidvasani: Let’s not forget the sacrifices of these brave sons of India.

Comedy is quite difficult to do: Nushrat.

Actress Nushrat Bharucha of “Pyaar Ka Punchnama” fame has some more comedy films coming up but says they’re not easy to do.

“Comedy actually is quite difficult to do. The timing, the tone, the delivery and the precise expressions are all very crucial, especially for actresses because we are not given the author-backed punches,” Nushrat  Bharucha told IANS.

“But I’m very comfortable with the comedy films that I have done because they have a certain premise and subtext. I have been playing catalyst sort of roles in the comedy films that I’ve been doing. I love what I do, I love what is being given to me, I am comfortable with it and I love the way it has been received,” added the “Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety” actress.

Looking back at her Bollywood career, which started over a decade ago, she said: “If you come to think of it, it’s been a comical journey for me.”

“But both ‘Turram Khan’ and ‘Dream Girl’ are very different from the rom-com (romantic-comedy) films I’ve done in the past. Their treatments are different and even within the comedy genre, these films explore different sub-generes. ‘Turram Khan’ is a social comedy and ‘Dream Girl’ is a unique yet a hardcore commercial entertainer.”

There are a lot of genres that she really wants to do.

“I feel it’ll take time for everything to fall into place – whether it’s scripts, roles, characters or writing. So, I guess with time, I will do other genres,” she said. (IANS)
