Dipa Karmakar

23-year-old Dipa Karmakar became a rage after she became the first Indian woman gymnast to have qualified for the Olympics, and scored an average of 15.066 points, 0.15 less than the eventual bronze winner Giulia Steingruber (15.216) of Switzerland. She might not have got the medal, but has sure made the country proud. Our Bollywood celebs too are all gaga over the young athlete, and they took to Twitter to express their gratitude and happiness, and heaps of praises for Dipa, for making India proud.


Here are some of the b-town celebs who gushed over Dipa’s determination and hardwork.
