New Delhi:

Bollywood veteran Amitabh Bachchan on the Friday Karamveer episode of "Kaun Banega Crorepati" played host to champion sprinters Dutee Chand and Hima Das and cricketer Virendra Sehwag.

On the show, Big B asked: "Just like the studio audience present here cheered for you and gave you a standing ovation, do a lot of Indians come for your athletic meets to cheer for you?" Dutee was quick to respond: "No Sir, there are very few Indians who attend our events."

"Sir, in my opinion, there is only one sport which is religiously followed in India and that is cricket. No matter wherever people play cricket, it automatically attracts a crowd. However, that is not the case with athletes. We barely find this support.


Dutte revealing how being an athlete is different from being a  sportsman with a team said, “When you play as a team, the teams' victory is your victory. But as an athlete, in case we suffer an injury, we don't get to participate at all. Therefore, when the public cheers for us, we feel motivated and inspired to perform better. We play for the country and our only motive is to make our country proud," 

Big B then urged people to motivate athletes, saying: "I feel that when our athletes represent our country in a foreign land, more and more Indians should visit these events to cheer for them, because it only adds to their confidence and motivates them further."

Meanwhile Twitter extending their support to the players called the episode most inspiring this season.  Here are some of the tweets.
