When Virat Kohli got the Arjuna Award in 2013, I was there at the Rashtrapati Bhavan and he told me then next time I would be receiving Droancharya and he would be applauding from the audience. Rajkumar Sharma got the Dronacharya Award in 2016.
We all know that people from the hills hardly exercise and we eat a lot of rice. For me, to be a model, that was a difficult part. To eat a lot of rice was definitely hard but over the years, I have realised that, you just need to push yourself, eat whatever you want and exercise a lot but of course try to eat healthy, because there are a lot of healthy options that we can eat.

It was because of his emotional touch to the process of reminding me how much he treasured our association, and valued the role of a teacher in his life.”
