Farhan Akhtar on Monday celebrated boxer Satish Kumar’s gutsy performance at the ongoing Tokyo Olympics, where he fought with the reigning world champion Bakhodir Jalolov despite multiple stitches on his forehead and chin.

Kumar, who had sustained two deep cuts on his forehead and chin during the pre-quarterfinals, decided to fight his next bout against Uzbek superstar Jalolov.

Kumar, a two-time Asian Games bronze winner and multiple-time national champion, had scripted history by just qualifying for the Games as he was the first super heavyweight from India to achieve the feat.

In an interview, Kumar–who is on medication right now– said his phone hasn’t stopped ringing, with people congratulating him as if he won.
