Incidentally, Sangram was wheelchair-bound when he was a kid. Says the wrestler, “I was born underweight and I also suffered from arthritis. My hands and legs were paralysed. But with my will power, I got better and became a wrestler.”

The wrestler wants to promote the cause of spreading awareness about sports for the physically challenged. Says Sangram, “I will promote this cause without any personal benefit.”
