‘It’s Very Disappointing’: Sakshi Reacts to Javed Akhtar’s Comment

India’s star wrestler Sakshi Malik said that she was very disappointed with athletes being called illiterate. Screenwriter Javed Akhtar had called wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt and cricketer Virender Sehwag “hardly illiterate” after they mocked Gurmehar Kaur’s campaign against war on Twitter.

The Rio Olympics bronze medallist said that an athlete has to be intelligent because he or she has to make decisions in a split second in any sport.

She added that, it’s very saddening to hear something like this since the athletes work very hard to win medals for the country.
