During the exclusive interview with Pinkvilla, Kartik Aaryan was asked how much he could relate to the story of Chandu Champion on a personal front.

To this, Aaryan said, "A lot. I felt like this journey could be a journey for anyone. A person who dreams of achieving his goals and this is a very underdog story where you feel like if I think of a dream like this and want to achieve it then it's a Chandu Champion story."

He further added that we all have a Chandu Champion inside us where we feel if we play sports, we want to be a winner and try to be at the top level no matter what profession we choose.   

Continuing the same, he added, "I was so amazed by the story when I first heard the script and while performing the film, I felt so many times that I could relate to this story. It's like a small-town boy dreaming of becoming something in life."
