Fitness enthusiast and actor Milind Soman’s wife Ankita Konwar, took to Instagram and called out the hypocrites for celebrating a northeasterner’s victory when they end up representing India and win medals.

She wrote, “If you’re from Northeast India, you can become an Indian ONLY when you win a medal for the country. Otherwise we are known as ‘Chinky’ ‘Chinese’ ‘Nepali’ or a new addition ‘Corona’. India is not just infested with casteism but racism too. Speaking from my experience. #Hypocrites”
