Dipa Karmakar may have missed out on winning a medal by 0.150 points, but the 23-year-old gymnast from Tripura sure created history with her performance at the Rio Olympics.
Not many know that Dipa is a huge fan of Hrithik Roshan “for the way he dances”. She is also “keen on watching his latest release”, which has been directed by Ashutosh Gowariker.

“Dipa won the nation’s hearts with her undying spirit. Even though the entire nation is rooting for her, and is extremely proud of her achievements, it came as a surprise for Hrithik when she spoke about how she is a big fan of his work,” says an insider.
When HT contacted Hrithik, he said, “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.”

Hrithik is “super proud” of Dipa’s achievements at the Olympics. “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,” said Hrithik.

Yusra Mardini thanks Hrithik Roshan for extending support to her and the team

Swimmer Yusra Mardini, part of a team made up of refugees at the Rio Olympics, has thanked Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan for extending support to her and the team.
"Hrithik, thank you so much for supporting Team Refugees. It means a lot for us that one of the most successful actors is supporting us," Mardini wrote on Friday in response to the actor's last week's post.
Hrithik had posted a thought-provoking tweet to support a team which was representing no nation.
The actor had specifically expressed his support to Mardini, who competed for the 100 meter butterfly and freestyle heats.
He had tweeted: "It's incredibly cool to have included displaced sportsmen in Olympics... This time as refugee Olympic team. They don't have a nation. Let's all cheer for them."

"I cheer for Yusra Mardini, a real life hero who saved lives through her swimming and is part of refugee Olympic athletes team," added the Mohenjo Daro actor.Welcome to EditPad.org - your online plain text editor. Enter or paste your text here. To download and save it, click on the button below.
