Surprisingly, Pakistan’s Arshad Nadeem has always had high praises for Neeraj. In a recent interview, he said, “His achievements inspire me and my goal is to emulate him one day, may beat him too.”

 

 

Neeraj Chopra’s Asian Games win has made India proud but Arshad wants to learn from his Indian counterpart more in the future. He says,

This isn’t the first time the sports star has raised an important issue. When she was ridiculed for not having a brother by haters, she said,

“Do you not have any brother?” and when I answer “No”, they say “oh” (arey). And I am like, that’s fine, it’s absolutely okay because we never felt that need.”

Sania has also openly requested her fans not to pray for a boy for her! Don’t believe it? Check out this video:
