Celebrating shuttler PV Sindhu’s feat at the Rio Olympics, leading food brand Pizza Hut has crafted a unique way to gather cheers for her.

Pizza Hut has announced that those who share the badminton player's name can walk into any of its outlets and walk-out with a free Pan Pizza across the country.

"The initiative is a small token of our appreciation for the Indian Olympians who have won medals at Rio," said Unnat Varma, Managing Director of Pizza Hut (Indian subcontinent) in a statement.

Sindhu yesterday scripted history by bagging Silver medal in the women's singles competition of the Rio Olympics. The 21-year-old settled for the white medal after being beaten 21-19, 12-21, 15-21 by World No.1 Carolina Marin of Spain.

The silver took India's medal tally to two after wrestler Sakshi Malik settled for the bronze in the 58 kilogram Freestyle category on Wednesday.

Pizza Hut had put up a similar offer earlier to celebrate Sakshi’s Bronze win over Kyrgysztan's Aisuluu Tynybekova.

The initiative received an overwhelming response with hundreds of women named 'Sakshi' in India walking away proudly with a free pizza, the statement added.
