Twitterati troll Shobhaa De after PV Sindhu enters finals at Rio Olympics 2016.Wiki Commons

Badminton player PV Sindhu has entered women's singles badminton final at Rio Olympics after defeating Japan's Nozomi Okuhara. With this, she has clinched a medal at the ongoing quadrennial event. This has comes as a proud moment for India, as she is the first woman to enter the last stage at Olympics.

Sakshi Malik, Karnam Malleshwari, MC Mary Kom and Saina Nehwal are the other female athletes who won bronze medals at Olympics for India. And PV Sindhu's entry to the finals has now guaranteed at least a silver for the nation, which itself is a big achievement. She will face Spain's Carolina Marin in the finals.

Even as the nation is celebrating her success, people are mocking writer and socialite Shobhaa De, who had lashed out at the athletes over their performance at Rio Olympics recently. She had tweeted, "Goal of Team India at the Olympics: Rio jao. Selfies lo. Khaali haat wapas aao. What a waste of money and opportunity[sic]."

With PV Sindhu now entering the women's singles badminton final and Sakshi Malik winning a bronze in wrestling 58kg freestyle category at Rio Olympics, people are trolling the writer on Twitter. Below, we bring to you a few comments posted by them:
