Mohit Chillar’s Early life

Mohit started playing Kabaddi as a kid and played for the School Games Federation of India. His uncle was the one who first got him interested in Kabaddi, despite the fact that his father used to play the game. Since there were no training facilities in his hometown, Mohit was dependent on guidance from his seniors. Mohit solidified his place in the national team by competing for his village club, the Juniors, and lastly the Pro Kabaddi League.

In addition, he works at Jodhpur for the North West Railway and has a deep admiration for Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar. His Kabaddi idols are Rakesh Kumar and Manjeet Chhillar, while Sachin Tendulkar is a sporting idol away from his first sport. Despite his love for travelling, food cooked by his mother is Mohit’s favourite, and he’s known to look forward to coming back home after long tournaments to enjoy a home-cooked meal.
