There is a lot to love when it comes to javelin ace Neeraj Chopra. While his 87.58-metre throw sealed India’s first-ever individual gold medal in athletics at the Olympics, making him an instant star in India, his passionate plea to support Pakistan counterpart Arshad Nadeem made him a darling of the masses.
On Thursday, the 23-year-old Chopra laughed off suggestions of backing a biopic on his eventful career, saying these things can wait. “I do not want a biopic to be made on me now. What if it flops,” Neeraj said, leaving the crowd in splits during a media event.
