Controversy

On 14 June 2020, he tweeted that he was suspended by AirAsia India after he made the statement that,

Air Asia is neglecting the safety measures which they have to take for the safety of their pilots, passengers, and the aircraft.”

Later, he uploaded a YouTube video on his channel related to his suspension. In this video, he said,

In order to achieve targets, what would people do? They will do Flap 3 landings without giving consideration whether it is safe or unsafe.. “This directly impacts the passenger safety. If something happens during a Flap 3 landing, then the question would be asked to the pilot if he or she cares more about saving fuel or 180 passengers.” [2]News 18

  • In an interview, when he was asked how he developed an interest in body building, he said,

Well, I started working out when I was in school. Like most of the people even I got inspired by Salman Khan. However, at that time, my dad had a pair of dumbbells so I used them for my workouts (should be around 20-25 lbs). Moreover, my school in Kanpur use to have a gym, thus I use to reach 45 mins before my classes just to workout there. I still remember, I used to carry an extra set of clothes for my early morning gym session. In fact, since school time, I was always keen to read extensively about nutrition and bodybuilding. It was during college, when this fitness word became a part of my lifestyle and rest is history!”
