Join the cheer squad for Dipa!
Indian gymnast Dipa Karmakar took a fantastic leap not into just Olympics final but also, in the hearts of million of Indians. The 22-year-old from Tripura finished eighth in the qualifying stage to earn a spot in the finals, in the vaults of artistic gymnastics at Olympics. She became the first Indian to do so. So, obviously we all are going gaga over this new superstar. Also, mightily impressed are our B-town celebs.
Amitabh Bachchan, Mandira Bedi, Shahid Kapoor took to their Twitter to express their joy and congratulate the young athlete. Celebs, they are just like us.
Dipa will be participating in the finals on august 14, and guess what, it is just 5 days after her 23rd birthday. We so damn hope she wins. Would be her best birthday gift ever!
We congratulate Dipa on her qualification and further hope that she makes India proud in the finals. Til then, these words by popular Bollywood personalities should pep her up.
