Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma made the entire nation proud when he scored his third double hundred in ODI career as team India defeated Sri Lanka in Mohali, Punjab, on Wednesday, December 13. But the moment that captured the eyes of the spectators, was Rohit kissing his wedding ring and dedicating his success to wife Ritika on their second anniversary touched the heart of millions of viewers. Applauds poured in and amid all, his ex-girlfriend Sofia Hayat weighed down on his efforts and rather brought in the angle of ‘gender discrimination’.
While congratulatory messages popped in from all corners of the cricketing fraternity, Sofia weighed down on his efforts while peaking to International Business Times India and berated the cricketer by saying, “I am happy that Rohit is gaining success. But wondering how people are discriminating things on gender. Rohit should understand it is just a ‘bat-ball’ game. Just that he is a man, so people are clapping.”
Speaking about Rohit’s third double ton in his ODI career, ex-girlfriend Sofia Hayat exclusively told International Business Times India, “I am happy that Rohit is gaining success. But wondering how people are discriminating things on gender. Rohit should understand it is just a ‘bat-ball’ game. Just that he is a man, so people are clapping. No one went this crazy when Kanchanmala won the Olympics with her disability. That was something more encouraging and should have been more praised as per my opinion. I would be celebrating for something better or social cause, not on this for sure.”
Sofia even went a step ahead to talk about Rohit’s gesture to wife Ritika which was sort of a wedding anniversary present from the cricketer. The actress said, “He (Rohit) has this old habit to credit his partner. When I was in his life, I used to be credited but I use to cry only when he played bad. I’m happy that Rohit has finally found someone who is trying to make him move on from me.”
Earlier this year in June, Sofia had posted a picture on Twitter showing her blocking Rohit on the social media site.
While Rohit is happily married to Ritika for over two years, Sofia, who had turned a nun, found love in model Vlad Stanescu and got married in 2017.
