In a candid chat with Gaurav Kapoor, KL Rahul talked about the adorable bond he shares with his girlfriend's father and actor, Suniel Shetty. He had shared how Suniel is an avid fan of cricket and fitness and had given some valuable tips to him about the same. Rahul had stated:
"He's not just a fan. He understands the game really well, he's borderline obsessed. We do have some conversations and arguments. He talks sense every time because he understands the game. 'You're not fit enough, you're getting injured, you're not eating healthy'. He's all about the healthy lifestyle and training. If you look at 60, he is as fit as anybody else. If he can do it at 60, I don't see why I can't do it."
