Who doesn’t know Dipa Karmakar, She is the first Indian female gymnast ever to compete in the Olympics, and the first Indian gymnast to do so in 52 years.
She missed out on her medal at Olympics by 0.150 points but the number of hearts she has won are countless. She is not less than a champion. Her courage and spirit are inspiring for all of us. But one thing you must know about Dipa is that she is a die hard fan of Hrithik Roshan. She had also expressed her wish to watch his latest film Mohenjo Daro.
“I am honoured [to learn that Dipa is my fan]. But I think I am a bigger fan of hers. The spirit with which Dipa played has won our hearts. She has a fantastic spirit, and at the same time, she seems very unassuming, sweet and vulnerable in her demeanour. She helped me drive home the point that I keep making to my kids (Hrehaan and Hridhaan) that the most important thing is not to win, but to give something your 100%, which she did!”
