Abhimanyu Dassani has chastised those who claim to be “glad of athletics when they win.” Abhimanyu referred to them as “bandwagon clout” on Twitter on Tuesday. He also stated that they do not have “the right to be proud of them” if they do not clap for the athletes when they are working very hard. His remark emerged when Mirabai Chanu of Manipur won a medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

He Tweeted, “To all the bandwagon clout chasing sports fans that come out of their holes to be ‘proud’ of athletes when they win. Here is the meaning of proud. feeling deep pleasure or satisfaction as a result of one’s own achievements, qualities, or possessions or those of someone with whom one is CLOSELY associated.”


Abhimanyu further wrote, “If you werent cheering for them when they were grinding blood sweat and tears on their fields or in their gyms You dont have the right to be proud of them, you can be happy for them. Start investing directly/indirectly into thier journeys to earn that right. Be a real fan.”

Some user replied, “So if a person is a taxpayer in this country his tax goes to union govt. the union government is running the TOPS scheme for olympic podium finishes..and the money used there comes from the tax payers in the country ..so they have the right to feel proud of their nations players.”

For which Abhimanyu said,  “You clearly haven’t been a competitive level athlete anywhere. And with that arrogant thinking I don’t expect you to understand what sportsmen/women go through. Carefully read the definition of proud, again.”

Furthermore, Abhimanyu will star alongside Sanya Malhotra in Karan Johar’s Meenakshi Sundareshwar. He’ll also star alongside Shilpa Shetty Kundra in the action-romance comedy Nikamma.

With Ramesh Bala’s Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota, Abhimanyu made his Bollywood debut in 2018.
