India's star gymnast who's made the cut at the Rio Olympics Dipa Karmakar has a strong support in Bollywood in the form of Sapna Pabbi. The KHAMOSHIYAN actress who's currently garnering much praise for her role in Season 2 of '24' is thrilled with the gymnast representing India at that level and has been rooting for her back home.
Not many know that Sapna shares a deeper connection with the sport as she has been a gymnast herself. In fact the sassy young star has trained in the same club in London that trains the Olympics team there.
Talking about it, she says, “Sometimes, I do wish I had gone on to become a gymnast and played for my country. There's no bigger high than to represent your country at an international level.”
“I wish many more young women come ahead and get a chance to reach those levels. It's a leap for Indian women,” she adds.
"As for her, Sapna shares that she is getting back to training for gymanstics. “I have been out of practice but am getting back to training rigorously. It's a great sport,” says Sapna.
How there was a hope to see Sapna also perform some gymnastics at the Olympics, but well!
