Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan, who recently attended the London Olympics, says countrymen should be proud of all Indian sportspersons who have made it to the world’s biggest sporting extravaganza, irrespective of whether they bring back any medal or not.

“I’m very ‘proud’ of each and every Indian Olympian! It’s a huge matter of pride and honour for the nation to simply qualify for the Olympics,” Abhishek tweeted.

When Indian boxer Vijender Singh lost out in the quarter-finals earlier this week, Abhishek’s father, Amitabh Bachchan, was among those who egged him on.
