Bollywood actor Vicky Kaushal who rose to fame with his performance in his latest venture 'Uri: The Surgical Strike' reacted to the dastardly Pulwama terror attack on CRPF and condemned the cowardly move of the terrorists. During a media interaction recently, the actor expressed his views on the same and said that 'it should not be forgotten or forgiven'.
When asked about what he thinks should be done next, he said, "I think I don't have enough knowledge to comment on what our nation do next. It's very easy to say do this or do that, but there are also reparations to it. So, I think let's wait for our government to take the best move. I am sure serious talks on the same are going on somewhere, and people having more knowledge than me are discussing the issue, so we should rely on them. But the pain and anger we are feeling unitedly it should not be forgotten or forgiven."
