I think more kids should be encouraged to play sports, says Sonakshi Sinha

Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha was recently seen remembering her best days at the school and she said that she loved all the sports that she played at school.

On the eve of National Sports Day on August 29, she has urged the kids to play more sports.

Sonakshi Sinha, the daughter of the famous Bollywood actor Shatrughan Sinha and Poonam Sinha said that more kids should be encouraged to take up sports.

Sona also revealed that her best memories from the school time came from playing different types of sports that she loved.


Her favorite sports items included tennis, volleyball, basketball and throw ball. Sonakshi Sinha has the opinion that if you keep on playing sports, it will help you in being fit and healthy. It will also help to build a strong character among the kids.

"I think more kids should be encouraged to play sports. I have the best memories from school while playing all the sports I love, like volleyball, tennis, basketball and throwball. It not only keeps you fit and healthy, but also builds character and I feel so fortunate that I was able to play while growing up.”

Sonakhi Sinha considers herself lucky enough that she was able to play all the sports that she liked while growing up.

29th August is celebrated as the National Sports Day in India and it was also the 114 birthday of Indian hockey legend Dhyan Chand.


He was one of the most prolific hockey players that India has ever seen and was well known for his extraordinary goal-scoring skills. He was part of the Indian team that won the Olympic gold medals in 1928, 1932 and 1936 and during that time, the Indian hockey team dominated the field hockey.

When Dhyan Chand was playing for India, the team had won seven Olympic medals from 1928 to 1964. After India's victory in the 1936 Olympics after defeating Germany by a margin of 8-1, the great Adolf Hitler offered Dhyan Chand a senior post in the German Army. But, Dhyan Chand gracefully refused the offer.

In the meantime, Sonakshi Sinha will be seen in her upcoming movies "Dabangg 3" and "Bhuj: The Pride of India".
