"Wow 3 pointers. Visible you had played basketball at some good level. Gradually Sports culture is now building in country. If all schools make mandatory for all students to play 1 sports for 1 hour in school under a professional coach than it will be great," another user wrote.

Thakur also tried his hands at Badminton and shooting after the inauguration of the Men's Hostel at Netaji Subhas Southern Centre on Saturday.
