New Delhi: Badminton star Saina Nehwal told the Hindustan Times in an interview that she would like to be known as Shah Rukh Khan of her sport.

Of late, Bangalore-based Nehwal has been interacting quite a bit with King Khan on social media.

The two met during 'Dilwale' film shooting in Hyderabad recently.

“I identify with him. I want to be the Shah Rukh Khan of badminton.

Like Shah Rukh sir, who conquered the world of movies coming from an ordinary, non-film family, I too want to excel in my chosen field. My family too didn’t have any big connection with badminton. But today, like him, I can say, I am the best,” she told HT.
