Chandrayaan 2 setback Bollywood celebs like Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Sonam Kapoor and many more express 'hope' for the mission
It was a historic day for India and its scientists as Chandrayaan 2 was all set to complete the final phase of its task in space. The lander Vikram glided down towards the moon surface but sadly 12 minutes before touchdown it lost contact with ISRO. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) lost communication with the lander when it was about 2.1 km from the surface of the moon. ISRO chairman K Sivan confirmed the news in a statement shortly after.
The ISRO scientists were hailed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and many leaders across the world. Even Bollywood celebrities like Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and many more took to their social media handle and not only applauded the scientist’s in ISRO but also expressed their pride in their efforts.
Here’s what they had to say:
T 3281 – ” Moon is 3,84,400 kms and we failed at 2.1 KM
that’s 0.0005463% of margin.Even this failure is a foundation for new beginnings.
Even this failure has a taste of success in it.
Kudos to our Scientists and ISRO 🇮🇳 ”

Shah Rukh Khan,
Sometimes we don’t land or arrive at the destination we want to. The important thing is we took off and had the Hope and Belief we can. Our current situation is never and not our final destination. That always comes in time and belief! Proud of #ISRO

There’s no science without experiment…sometimes we succeed, sometimes we learn. Salute to the brilliant minds of @isro, we are proud and confident #Chandrayaan2 will make way for #Chandrayaan3 soon. We will rise again.
