On Saturday in her interview with an Indian media house after winning the medal Chanu said: “First of all, I will go and have a pizza. It has been a long time since I ate it. I will eat a lot today.”
The video of the said interview was tagged to Pratik Potathe, CEO and Wholetime Director of Jubilant FoodWorks Ltd (JFL), which operates fast-food chains Domino’s Pizza in India, suggesting him to deliver “Pizza for her – for life”.
While replying to it, Pota said: “Done! That’s the least we can do for someone who has brought so much honour for the country! #MirabaiChanu.”
Three hours later, Pota shared photos on twitter of Domino’s team in Imphal delivering pizzas to her family.
“Even as we prepare to give #MirabaiChanu a hero’s welcome and let her eat pizzas to her heart’s content, our Imphal team went to her house to congratulate her family with what else but Domino’s Pizza @dominos_india. Congratulations @mirabai_chanu you have done India proud!” he tweeted.
