Dance+ 6: Neeraj Chopra tells Raghav Juyal what he calls his javelin, why he cut his hair. Watch

]

Olympic gold medalist javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra featured as a special guest in an episode of Dance+ 6. During one segment, host Raghav Juyal asked him to answer some oft-googled questions about himself.

The first question was, “Why did Neeraj Chopra cut his hair?” Neeraj, who used to have long hair until a few months ago, said that his hair got in the way when he was practising for the Tokyo Olympics. He added that he did not want to ruin his first-ever shot at an Olympic medal just for the sake of a hairstyle.

“Where does Neeraj Chopra keep his javelin?” was the second question. He said that he keeps his personal javelins with him, while the ones he trains with at the National Institute of Sports (NIS) in Patiala, are kept in a locked room.

Fans also wanted to know what Neeraj calls his javelin. He said that he simply refers to it as ‘bhala’, the Hindi word for javelin, but his coach has nicknamed it ‘Sweety’.

“How to match kundali (horoscope) with Neeraj Chopra?” was the next question. He blushed and said that he did not have any knowledge about horoscopes and found it strange. He also described his ideal woman. When Raghav jokingly asked if she should be like a javelin, he replied, “Nahi, nahi, nahi. Itni lambi ka kya karein, woh toh bohot lambi ho jayegi (No, no, what would I do with such a tall woman?).” +

Neeraj said that his ideal woman would be another athlete, someone who is focused on her career. There should be mutual respect between them and she should respect family, he said.

The final question was, “What is Neeraj Chopra’s phone number real 2021?” He quipped, “Har saal number badalta hoon, iska matlab hai (Do they think I change my number every year?” He then revealed that when he embarked on a career in sports, his uncle gave him his own number, which he still uses. He added that he has not checked his messages in over a year because he would like to reply to every message but that is no longer possible.

Neeraj Chopra’s name has been forever etched in every Indian’s heart. That one historic throw and there we were, ready to catch it safely into the palm of our hands and closer to our chest. Ever since his momentous win, we have seen him take the plunge as an artiste too and designer Rohit Bal saw potential in him to invoke the stylish man under the national jersey. Neeraj Chopra was styled in many suave looks from the designer’s label and we must say that this sportsman has another talent up his sleeve. He ditched his sporty looks for a textured bandhgala tailored to perfection that he admitted would happily be part of his ethnic closet with minimal embroidery on the sleeves making this admittedly a “less is more” favourite. With the upcoming wedding season, we won’t be surprised if many believe he is in fact a very suitable boy with his suitable ethnic looks in place.
