Talking to Maharashtra Times that she said, “Many people in the film industry always help soldiers who sacrifice their lives for the nation. Even now, people from the industry are helping out. I have also announced something from my end.”

Earlier, Lata Mangeshkar took to Twitter to pay her condolences for lives lost after the Pulwama attack.
“Earlier, on the occasion of my birthday, I had appealed to people that instead of sending me bouquets, gifts, spend that money for jawans. People positively reacted to my appeal.
