Akshay and Sindhu were partners during a match for the Premier Badminton League in the capital earlier this year.  As a team, they played against Abhishek Bachchan and Jwala Gutta."Always knew you were an achiever. You managed to convert a cricket obsessed nation to watch badminton. PV Sindhu. Proud," Akshay captioned the image which he posted on his Twitter account on Saturday.

Hailing the sportswoman, Akshay also tweeted: "Every cloud has a silver lining indeed! First Olympic silver in Badminton for India! Thank you. Huge respect".

Sindhu bagged the silver medal in the women's singles competition of the Rio Olympics.
