Leading food brand Pizza Hut is celebrating the success of Sindhu by offering free Pan Pizzas on Saturday to those who share the badminton player's name.

Pizza Hut earlier announced a similar offer to celebrate wrestler Sakshi Malik's bronze win.

The initiative received an overwhelming response as hundreds of women named Sakshi walked away with a free pizza.

"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.

Pizza Hut also tweeted out a message for women who were named Sindhu.

The fast food chain also tweeted something similar out when Sakshi Malik, India's bronze medal winner achieved her accolade in the women's 58kg wrestling.
