New Delhi, Sep 26: Following the stellar display of talent by the Para Athletes at the Rio Paralympics 2016, the Paralympic Committee of India arranged for a ceremonial send-off to the contingent for the Asian Para Games.
The event was attended by film star Shah Rukh Khan, who shared a few words of motivation and spent time interacting with the departing contingent.
In a short speech, Shah Rukh Khan said that all individuals are "incomplete" in their own way despite any amount of "power and stardom", as he wished the Indian Paralympic Contingent for the Asian Para Games 2018 at their send-off ceremony.
The 52-year-old actor, who was in the national capital, said people have to battle with their weaknesses to "fulfill their incompleteness". Shah Rukh told the athletes that whenever they win at the Asian Para Games the "medals would be lucky to have you and not the other way around."
Also present at the event were President, PCI, Rao Inderjit Singh, and Paralympic medallists Devendra Jhajharia, Mariappan Thangavelu and Varun Bhati, among others. (UNI)
