India’s collective heart is full after badminton star PV Sindhu won the silver medal in the women’s singles match at the Rio Olympics. In a bravely-fought thriller of a match, Sindhu lost to Spain’s Carolina Marin. At home, stars like Rajinikanth and Amitabh Bachchan were watching and saluted the 21-year-old on Twitter.
Rajinikanth, who rarely tweets, declared himself a fan of the young player. His tweet had been retweeted over 14,000 times. Big B, who has been following the Rio Games closely, thanked Sindhu for bringing India glory.
Hats off to you #PVSindhu …. I have become a great fan of yours … Congratulations !
