Bharat Ratna, Missile Man and People’s President, APJ Abdul Kalam, passed away following a massive heart attack in Shillong on Monday.
Bollywood stars took to Twitter to pay their heartfelt tributes to the former President of India, a man who didn’t want his presidency to be extended because he wants to teach, educate and interact with the youth of the country.
RIP no longer meant ‘Rest in Peace’, but was now the short form of ‘Return If Possible’ for a man whose presence will forever be missed.
Before the celebrity tweets, do read what the President, Pranab Mukerjee, and the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, had to say about the late Dr Kalam.

a person’s dead … huge shame …!!
We people are in huge loss …. to be
really straight forward person ….
if we are really what God wants us to be
then we can expect a life without problems and pain ….!!
but unfortunately not only non muslims,
but also some Muslims do big sins which
can’t be forgiven….!!!
I assure all of indicine users we all will burn in hell forever including myself …
huh can’t write any more …!!
next world is too dangerous for the those people who never did right deeds …
but for those who always do the right things will be a comfortable place endlessly …..!!!
Rip his soul.

Salman ke twitter me kuchh to locha hai bosss…..cause after the yakub menon incident……suddenly how his english become so correct….. I think some one else is handling is account aftr tht incident….
Huge loss to our country….
One of the finest human beings
Immensely loved person.. Bought a great respect to the president post. May his soul rest in peace…
Sir we are inspired by your words…
One of my most loveable man Dr.APJ ABDUL KALAM sir.felling very sad.RIP
@ javed – why should Aamir write on his death? it is his choice. how many who tweeting are really sad. will they don’t eat today? no. so if aamir didn’t like write what’s your problem?
We love you Kalam sir.You will always be a true inspiration for the world.
APJ Kalam sir, May Almighty guides your soul to heaven !!!!!!! RIP
I request all fans (specially @javed and @Romance) to stay away from any off topic on this page.
So sad that we missed one of the greatest presidents of our country as well as a great human being. RIP his soul and god bless him in heaven. He was the inspiration for many many people for so many things and a true legend of India.
Aamir khan received a padma shree award from missile man of India Dr. Apj Abdul kalam. So Definitely aamir will twit soon.
@javed if you have little bit of common sense than you shod understand that its not possible for everyone to tweet at the same time. Aamir has received padma shri award from Mr. Abdul Kalam so why would he not mourn him? He has great respect for him and he will do it so just shut your nonsense and just wait. He has always tweeted and mourned any celebrity or legend’s demise in the past. So apply some common sense, all you know is making senseless predictions and mindless childish comments.
when she re-shaped her lips it was like a traumatic condition of her so she is unable to do a right thing. how silly is that.
A true bharat ratna in every sense A LEGEND…RIP SIR…I m quit impressed with d book WINGS OF FIRE…AWESOME ONE …MUST READ FOR A YOUTH….
