National Sports Day is celebrated on August 29th, and Shershaah actor Himanshu Malhotra has shared his love of sports, especially cricket. “I played cricket. I was a professional cricketer for so many years and then I became an actor. I played badminton and table tennis for a while. I also played a little soccer. I love sports, ”said the actor, who thinks that as an athlete you have to take care of your health.
“Our country’s national sport is hockey, but cricket is considered a kind of religion in India. Everyone who played it was treated like God, ”added actor Ek Nayi Umeed-Roshni. Himanshu, who started out as an actor in the mid-2000s, believes that sports other than cricket are a little less popular in India.
“Tennis and badminton (are popular) because of Sania Mirza and PV Sindhu. Once we have a Sania Mirza or a Primary Sindhu, we will have children to follow them. Once we have a Shah Rukh Khan, we will have younger generation children to follow him. The idol creates a great path for sport and that happens in our country too. We actually follow a lot of celebrity culture. We pursue a lot of heroism that happens, ”he said.
