In an interview to Bengali daily Anandabazar Patrika, the 23-year-old wrestler hinted at her wedding plans.
“He is very supportive. He thinks my dreams are his dreams. I will gain a friend after marriage. He will help me in my preparations. I believe wrestling after marriage will not be a problem,” she told the Bengali daily, keeping her future husband identity a secret.
The Haryana resident returned home to a hero’s welcome last week. She became a national hero overnight after she ended India’s medal drought at Rio by clinching bronze in the women’s 58kg-category wrestling event.
