The congratulatory wishes from Bollywood flowed for the team of Indian Space Research Ogranisation (ISRO) on the succesful launch of Chandrayaan 2 on Monday. Appaluding the scientists for their hardwork, superstar Shah Rukh Khan recalled his song Chaand tare…" from his film Yes Boss. "Chaand taare tod laoon. Saari duniya par main chhaoon! To do that requires hours and hours of painstaking work and integrity and belief. Congratulations to the team at ISRO for Chandrayaan 2," he tweeted. The Project Director and the Mission Director of India's second moon mission are women, and filmmaker Karan Johar hailed girl power. "Each one of us is lucky to be alive to witness this historic occasion! Chandrayaan 2 is the first mission by ISRO which is headed by two women – Muthyva Vanitha and Ritu Karidhal. Women are indeed taking over the world… And beyond," he wrote.
