In the video, with Olympic medallist Sakshi Malik by her side, Nisha said that she is in Gonda, Uttar Pradesh, for the senior national wrestling championships.

“Hello, my name is Nisha. I have come to play Senior Nationals in Gonda and I am completely fine. This is fake news. I am completely fine,” she said.
