Twitter Rips Apart Journo Navika Kumar For Repeatedly Asking Neeraj Chopra If He Has A Girlfriend


Twitter Rips Apart Journo Navika Kumar For Repeatedly Asking Neeraj Chopra If He Has A Girlfriend

The Indian sportspersons have returned from the Tokyo Olympics and they have been welcomed in a grand manner for putting up a great show. The only Gold medal that India attained in this Olympics was won by the track and field athlete Neeraj Chopra in Javelin Throw. With this Gold medal, Neeraj Chopra has become the second Indian sportsperson to win the individual Gold medal after Abhinav Bindra who won the Gold medal in shooting in 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Neeraj Chopra became a household name after making history in the Olympics and some online users also predicted that now Bollywood would make a biopic on the athlete and even started a debate as to which actor would be suitable to play the lead role. However, many are of the opinion that Neeraj Chopra can play his own role in the biopic and there is no need for any other actor to portray him.

All the medal winning athletes including Neeraj Chopra were interviewed by various news channels but one interview of Neeraj Chopra is going viral for all the wrong reasons and it has left many Indians angry.

We are talking about the interview taken by Times Now senior journalist Navika Kumar. A video clip has been shared by Times Now on its official Twitter handle and it is evidently apparent that the entire focus of Navika Kumar is on talking about Neeraj Chopra’s fan following, especially among the females and how he feels being a superstar.

While the athlete kept on repeating that his focus is completely on his game and training, Navika Kumar wanted to know whether he has a girlfriend or not and she repeatedly laid emphasis on the same.

What made people angrier was the caption used by Times Now while sharing the clip on Twitter as it read,

“#Exclusive BIG REVELATION by Neeraj Chopra | Good news for girls!

No, I don’t have any girlfriend. My only focus as of now is sports: #Olympics #Gold medalist #NeerajChopra, tells Navika Kumar”

Here is the video clip that will leave you furious too:

Netizens were utterly disappointed with such low level of journalism and they slammed Navika Kumar mercilessly, calling her the aunt who is more interested in knowing Neeraj Chopra’s relationship status so that she can start gossiping on the same or begin finding a suitable match for him. Many others slammed her for not knowing what kind of questions should be asked to an athlete who has made the country proud by winning the gold.

Check out some of the selected reactions:



















Hopefully these journalists will understand what type of questions they should ask to an international athlete instead of such rubbish and not make him uncomfortable on the national TV or the news channels should hire more deserving candidates who actually know what they should question and what not while interviewing the legends.

RIP journalism!
