Indian men's singles shuttler Parupalli Kashyap has urged people suffering from asthma to open up about their condition like actor Priyanka Chopra did.

Yesterday, Kashyap in a series of tweets, said: "Hats off to @priyankachopra for opening up about asthma & encouraging more people to open up against the stigma surrounding the condition. I have had asthma since I was a teenager. At the age of 16, while I was training in Bangalore, I kept on falling sick every 2-3 weeks. The general physician did not suggest that I go see a chest physician. Since this kept on occurring I thought it was the air & weather in Bangalore that wasn't right for me & I shifted to Hyderabad.

"I was given proper medication, such as inhalers. I noticed an instant change in my lifestyle. I was suddenly fitter, faster & healthier. I have overcome the situation eventually and gone on to do better. I would like to call out to all the asthmatics & tell them that it IS NOT a condition that stops you from living life. It's just a speed bump that can be surpassed if taken care of correctly."
