Actress Neetu Chandra believes sports must be given due importance in children’s life since a very young age.
Neetu has been involved in three different sports in India — taekwondo, basketball and now kabaddi.
“Sports must be inculcated in children at a very young age in school. It is important that marks should be given for participation in sports. It’s only then that India will be able to take part as a major force in the international arena, with confidence and positivity,” Neetu said in a statement.
“With our huge population, if the kids are trained from their school time, we have the capability of creating Olympians,” she added,
Neetu is supporting the Kabaddi team from her hometown Patna in the Vivo Pro Kabaddi League. She also is the brand ambassador of Taekwondo in India with fourth Dan black belt and has been closely associated with the National Basketball Association (NBA) besides being an avid sports enthusiast.
