Additional Information

In 2010 both he and his older brother Chirag moved from their family home in Almora, India, to live and train at the Prakash Padukone Badminton Academy in Bangalore. The brothers spent more than six years away from their family, before their parents moved to Bangalore. "It's helpful to have my parents here with me, especially in terms of food. My father comes to my training sessions and to tournaments as well. Chirag helps me a lot during practice and during tournaments, but he plays a much bigger role off the court. We are close, because he has seen me from the start of my badminton journey. After matches he takes me out and we have a good time together. That way I get to enjoy a normal teenage life." (sportstar, 21 Jan 2019)

He looks for ways to improve his game by paying attention to what professional athletes from other sports do. "I watch a lot of sports documentaries and watch closely how professionals improve their game. I really liked the one on [Jamaican sprinter] Usain Bolt." (forbesindia, 21 Feb 2022)
