I think a lot of athletes when they get in their mid and late 30s, they focus more on kids, on family.
It is not fair; we live in such a hypocritical society where only film stars are supposed to dress up. It is almost like the shabbier you look, the more focused you are in your game.
I’m a competitor and that’s what I love to do more than anything.
Physically, when you are fit, mentally you are more alert and confident.
I want to go out there and show the world I can stretch my legs even more and exhibit more talent.

I feel we need more quality badminton players; I will put in the best efforts to inculcate discipline in those who are keen to make a mark both in sports and in the society.
Doubles does not have adequate support, promotion and sponsorship and budding shuttlers are more keen to take up singles.
The consistent support that singles player are getting is way more than doubles, it is 100:1. We hardly get any support, the only support we get is from the government but it is not enough if we have to perform consistently at the highest level.

I worked on my playmaking and versatility, so that I could play more minutes at more spots on the court – power forward, point forward, center, whatever it takes.
I’ve already engaged in talks with the textile sector, where we hope to create tens of thousands more jobs.
I’m the biggest Laker fan. Probably more of a Kobe fan.

I mean, I’m learning more than I could from any acting teacher just by working.
They treat kid actors more like an object than persons.
