Two Olympic medals back to back only goes to show that nothing is impossible if you dare to dream... Thank you for showing how it's done and for making India so so proud."

Hyderabad-based producer Sharath Chandra, whose co-production "Major" will soon release, said: "After what Sindhu did, I really hope the one sports class per week in schools will be made one a day and sports is given the respect it deserves in our education system."
