Dipa Karmakar may have failed to bag a medal at Rio 2016 Olympics, but the daredevil gymnast has certainly won millions of hearts. After impressing the world with her first vault stunt, Dipa's Produnova stunned everyone in India and she received widespread appreciation from all quarters.

In sync with the entire country, Bollywood celebrities too praised Dipa for her courageous act. Several B-Town celebs took to Twitter and congratulated the gymnast for making India proud. After she became the first Indian to have qualified for the Vault finals at Olympics, fans were hoping that Dipa might bring the first ever gold medal for India.

Although Dipa performed the risky Produnova magnificently, she missed the bronze medal by a whisker, securing the fourth ranking at Rio 2016.
