Just like the rest of the country, Bollywood stars too wished Paralympians Avani Lekhara, after she became the first Indian woman to win an individual gold medal in the Paralympics or Olympics, after winning the women's 10m Air Rifle Standing SH1 event, at the ongoing Tokyo Paralympics.

From actors Akshay Kumar to Vicky Kaushal, several celebrities took to social media to congratulate the 19-year-old.

 She's the fourth Indian athlete to win a Paralympics gold after swimmer Murlikant Petkar (1972), javelin thrower Devendra Jhajharia (2004 and 2016) and high jumper Thangavelu Mariyappan (2016). 

 

Several Bollywood celebs also wished other Paralympians including  Yogesh Kathuniya, Devendra Jhajharia, and Sundar Gurjar who won two silver medals and one bronze medal, respectively at the sporting tournament.

After Sumit Antil created a new world record and won the gold medal in men's javelin throw event India's medal count has risen to eight, including two golds, three more than the four secured in the 2016 Rio Games.
