Following Neeraj Chopra’s glorious victory at the Tokyo Olympics this year, the javelin star has been busy attending events and appearing for several interviews – some good, some bad, and some downright cringe-worthy. After journalist Navika Kumar and RJ Malishka’s embarrassing interviews, here comes Art Historian Rajeev Sethi.
In a recent interview with Neeraj Chopra, Rajeev Sethi got a little too personal and asked the sportsman about his ‘sex life’. According to News18, Rajeev asked him, “How do you maintain a balance between your sex life and athletic training?”
In the video, Neeraj is seen being clearly embarrassed by the question. At first, he says “Sorry, Sir”. But when the historian presses for an answer, Neeraj says, “Aapke question se mera maan toh bhar gaya.”
“Neeraj would not like to answer that,” the host of the interview says.
Have a look at the video here:

People online condemned unnecessary and cheap questions being directed at the national star. Here’s how some of them reacted:
Media persons need to recognise that @Neeraj_chopra1 is a national icon. They need to treat him with respect irrespective of his age or background. The repeated instances of casual disrespect are a reflection of a deep-rooted class bias.

What are these people thinking? Don’t they have any kind of manners at all? What does it take to have a proper formal interview! This keeps getting worse and worse. Do they interview cricket stars the same way or am I missing something here?

How mannerless !
Some people feel interview hain toh koi bhi sawal pucch sakte hain !
It’s sick & disgusting how someone can ask such personal questions to anyone
There are some lines of decency which should never be crossed & this man has crossed all limits !

They are hell bent on harassing Neeraj 😡
Baap ke umar ka admi, thoda toh sharm karo
These so called English speaking city dwellers are so jealous of Neeraj’s success that they leave no stone to embarrass him everytime. This is so malicious 😖
