Last evening, Badminton star PV Sindhu stormed into the finals after giving a smashing performance on court defeating Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara 21-19, 21-10 in the semifinals. Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is religiously following Olympics 2016 and tweeting his heart out in support of our Indian athletes.
When PV Sindhu reached finals, Indians were in the celebratory mode. Amitabh Bachchan too joined the bandwagon and well, he was nothing short of witty. Readers may recall that Shobhaa De received flak over her comment that read, “Goal of Team India at the Olympics: Rio jao. Selfies lo. Khaali haat wapas aao. What a waste of money and opportunity.” So, Mr. Bachchan congratulated Pursala Sindhu on her win and took a dig at Shobhaa De with some witty tweets. He wrote, “Never ever underestimate power of female gender ! #PVSindhu you have destroyed so many ‘naysayers’ .. you are the PRIDE of INDIA!#PVSindhu .. aap “khaali haath” nahein, medal leke wapas aa rahein hain .. aur hum aapke saath ‘selfie’ nikalne chahate hain !!”
While PV Sindhu aims for the gold medal, she is receiving entire nation’s support. The final match will be held today at 6:55pm.
