Dipa Karmakar from Tripura, the first Indian female gymnast to qualify the final vault in Rio Olympics and who narrowly missed out on the bronze medal won many hearts in the country. While the entire nation expressed their pride over her talent, when asked if she is a fan of someone in Bollywood, she replied that it was Hrithik Roshan.
When contacted Hrithik Roshan he said, "I am honored. But I think I am the bigger fan her. The spirit with which she played, she won all our hearts. At the same time she seems so unassuming sweet and vulnerable in her demeanor. She helped me drive home the point I keep making to my kids that the most important thing is not to win but to give your 100% which she did."
