New Delhi: 

Bollywood mega star Amitabh Bachchan is all praises for Gymnast Dipa Karmakar after her stellar performance at the FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Challenge Cup in Turkey.

The 'Paa' actor, proud of Dipa Karmakar's achievement, tweeted, "T 2861 - CONGRATULATIONS to @DipaKarmakar .. she has won Gold in the World Championships for gymnastics on the Vault  .. you proved to the World that what was wrongly denied to you in the Olympics, you won it here .. !! Proud of you .. we are proud Indians because of you ! ????"

The gymnast, who was out of action  due to an Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury, made up for the gap by winning a gold at the event.

Apart from Mr Bachchan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb also took to the micro-blogging website to congratulate the gymnast.
