Ranveer Singh is a good sport. Reports say he will be backing the women’s final squash tournament, following a small request from his school friend Pia Bhattacharaya,��a squash enthusiast, mentor to budding players and wife of five-time national squash champion, Ritwik Bhattacharya.

According to Pune Mirror, Bhattacharya got in touch with Singh as she felt it would do the team and the sport good to get a celebrity endorsement. Bhattacharya sent a text asking Singh to��be a part of a women�۪s final match and felicitation program hosted by the Indian Squash Circuit (ISC).�ʉ��We went to school together. I�۪ve known him for 14 years. I figured I�۪d have to go through a certain number to people to get to him but Bollywood hasn�۪t managed to change Ranveer,�۝ said the squash mentor. As the saying goes a��friend in need is a friend indeed couldn’t be more truer.

Ecstatic about Singh’s decision Bhattacharaya went on the say, ���Our squash players really need the publicity and Bollywood has a great influence on Indians. When a superstar endorses a sport, it changes the entire game. Ranveer is always helping friends, family, and is the kind of man who�۪d walk out of his car to help someone on the street.�۝

World Rank 10, Joshna Chinappa, and World Rank 19, Dipika Pallikal, were over the moon to hear the news too. It’s been said��Ranveer who is as equally excited about the whole thing, will also play a friendly match with the young women.

The ‘Bajirao Mastani’ (2015) actor said, ���In a year when Indian female athletes have done the country proud at both the Olympics as well as the Para Olympics, I believe women squash players have it in them to be at the top. With some of the world�۪s best players leading the way, I�۪m sure there is a significant and untapped opportunity to generate interest and engagement of potential women players with this sport through such tournaments.”
