Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan, who recently attended the 2012 London Olympics, says countrymen should be proud of all Indian sports persons who have made it to the world's biggest sporting extravaganza, irrespective of whether they bring back any medal or not.
Abhishek Bachchan tweeted:
The actor flew to London to be a part of the sporting event as the brand ambassador of Omega watches, the official sponsors of the Games. Abhishek was vexed when a journalist asked him if he was"angry" with India's performance at the Olympics.
He believes it is important to encourage sportspersons rather than demoralising them.
When Indian boxer Vijender Singh lost out in the quarter-finals earlier this week, Abhishek's father, megastar Amitabh Bachchan, was among those who egged him on.
