When asked he said, "At 17 only, I started training in the gym. The gym was more like desi style where for the first time I learned weightlifting and bodybuilding exercises. The gym here is not a fancy one, but it’s completely like an Akhada.

The equipment is desi but all the types of equipment are there. It's great to be in a situation where you train in a complete old style environment. We are getting personally trained by Sandeep and Bikramjeet, we are also getting trained with the main exercises required for hockey in the same gym. It’s different but it is something new to learn and I am enjoying every bit of it."
