In a video which he shared on his official X (formerly known as Twitter) account, he expressed that Indians are typically seen in conventional roles such as engineers, doctors, lawyers, and so on. He said:

What people forget is that we are actually warriors at heart. For centuries we had to fight out invaders and protect our homeland. That’s why I fight to feel like going back to my roots and doing what I was born to do.

He further said:

Navigating cultural and societal expectations about your life is a complex task, but I’ve chosen to stray from the common path and devote myself to the violent art of fighting. Some of us fight for fame, recognition, and money. I fight because it’s in my blood.”
