Neeraj Chopra has made the entire country proud with his historic win at the Tokyo Olympics. The gold-medalist now has several eyes on him, curious to know what the future holds for him.
However, a recent interview of Neeraj Kumar left fans disappointed. Journalist Navika Kumar interviewed the athletic sensation and asked him questions on his female fan following, whether he is enjoying the female attention, and whether or not he has a girlfriend.
She keeps asking him questions on this topic and calls him the country’s most “eligible bachelor”. But all Neeraj Chopra answered was that right now, his entire focus is devoted to his sport and training. Have a look at the video here:

Some people cannot see the success of a man or woman without asking his/her relationship status . Arey bhai he is bringing laurels to India , let him to that .Doing marriage or being in relationship isn’t an achievement , that’s a personal matter . Jab maan chahega karega

They’re all asking him ridiculous questions like getting married, his girlfriend, and making him uncomfortable on television instead of asking him about his training, challenges, and exposure to the game.

You had the chance to meet the sportsman who created history in Olympics 2021 and this is what you ask him . Stop promoting this mentality, he is focussed let him focus on his game. Career comes first. Be sensible next time madam . 🙄

First rule of Journalism : if someone is uncomfortable don’t dig more about personal life it’s unprofessional imagine someone asking you about your relationship status and not sport you play. If he says no just move on
Wait but Navika Kaha Journalist hai

How to make a 23 YO feel uncomfortable? Learn it from Navika.
Bull Sh*t journalism. Send someone more capable and professional to interview a Gold medalist of India. And ensure to ask appropriate questions in the interview as kids and families will be watching together.
