Badminton star PV Sindhu has appreciated all those people who have come forward and spoken about their ordeals as part of India’s #MeToo movement.
Veterans such as Nana Patekar and Alok Nath have been accused of sexual misconduct. The journalist-turned-politician MJ Akbar, who is a junior foreign minister in the NDA government, was also accused of misconduct by many journalists.
At a promotional event, Sindhu said, “I appreciate that people have come forward and spoken about it. I respect it. “
When asked if she was aware of any such incident in sports, Sindhu replied, “I don’t know about seniors and coaches. As far as I am concerned, I have been on sports circuit for years and it has been good and fine with me.”
Earlier, Jwala Gutta alleged mental harassment by a coach but did not disclose any name.
