However, when at a time the entire nation is welcoming Dutee for her brilliant performance on tracks, her parents, on the other hand, are still stuck at her relationship status. As Dutee has announced it just a couple of months ago that she is in a same-sex relationship, her parents have expressed total displeasure and unacceptance at Dutee’s decision. However, her parents are happy at her achievement, but at the same time has strongly expressed their displeasure for being in a lesbian relationship.
This will have to be mentioned here that despite the repeated negligence and unacceptance of her parents, Dutee Chand has been able to earn such feats.
