Indeed, we cannot agree more with Akshay....
The entire country has been following Olympics this year and the credit for that goes to the three champions who have made us proud - PV Sindhi, Sakshi Malik and Dipa Karmakar. India has been cheering for each one of them where our Bollywood celebs too seem to be playing a major role in it. While celebs like Rajinikanth, Deepika Padukone, Amitabh Bachchan, Dhanush, A.R.Rahman, Alia Bhatt, Twinkle Khanna among others took to Twitter to express their wishes and support. Salman Khan too tweeted how proud he is where he even posted a picture with PV Sindhu. In fact, even Katrina Kaif who despite being busy with her Dream Tour took to Facebook to congratulate the athletes and spoke about what an inspiration they are. However, wait until you check out what Akshay Kumar has to say in addition to this.
Akshay Kumar who is currently celebrating the success of his recent film Rustom posted an image of himself along with Sindhu and captioned it saying, 'Always knew you were an achiever. You managed to convert s cricket obsessed nation to watch badminton!' True that, right? I mean, admit it! We have always been more obsessed about cricket than any other sport. But yesterday we changed that whole damn perception by following PV Sindhu's match like as if it was a cricket face off between India and Pakistan.
Not to forget, PV sindhu has made us all proud by bringing home the silver medal and putting our country's face on the map of Olympics. Despite a great match Sindhu loses the final of the women's badminton at Rio Olympics 2016 to Carolina Marin. However, this does not stop our nation from celebrating the silver medal and Sakshi Malik winning the bronze medal for women's wrestling for this is the first time women athletes are winning for India.
