Last evening, we and all of our other fellow Indians were in a state of shock when it was learned by one and all that our former Prime Minister, Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee has left us all due to a tragic kidney failure. The news in question was confirmed by AIIMS shortly after the tragedy took place.
And now, in order to pay their last respects to the now heaven-departed statesman, many of our beloved celebrities, such as the likes of Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Rajinikanth and many others took to social media to express their grief.
Check out what they all had to say about the incredible wordsmith right here:
