When the Vikram Lander was just 2.1 km away from creating history, it lost contact at the ground station at ISRO. While the entire nation is applauding ISRO scientists for their hard work, a video of Prime Minister Narendra Modi hugging and consoling ISRO Chairman K Sivan as he breaks down, is going viral. Bollywood celebs took to their Twitter handles and reacted on the video. While Sonam Kapoor called the video 'heartening', Anupam Kher and Paresh Rawal thanked PM Modi for 'making us feel safe'. Anupam Kher wrote, 'Dear PM @narendramodi ji!! Your speech at @isro will remain one of the most inspirational speeches ever. Your affectionate and emotional hug to #Isro Chief K Sivan is a visual that will be etched in every Indian’s memory for years. You make us feel protected. Thank you'. Filmmaker Atul Kasbekar also took to Twitter and wrote that it is wonderful of the Prime Minister to show support.
