Bhubaneswar: After winning hearts of Odias by remembering martyr Baji Rout’s sacrifice on Children’s Day, former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag has opined that movies should be made on such persons.

The ‘Nawab of Najafgarh’ also said that stories of such young heroes must be a part of every school curriculum.

Taking to Twitter, the former explosive opening batsman, while replying to a tweet of Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan in which he had thanked Sehwag for remembering Baji Rout, said, “A hero like Shaheed Baji Rout & his friends and all such exceptional young heroes need to be known beyond the world of Social media. Films should be made on such heroes and he & many such bravehearts must be a part of every school curriculum. We need to have our heroes right.”

Worth mentioning, the ‘Sultan of Multan’ in a series of tweets had yesterday narrated about the inspiring bravery of Baji Rout, who at the tender age of 12 was courageous enough to fearlessly face the bullets of British force.
