Personal Agenda with Heena Sidhu: “One myth about shooters is that we don’t need to go to the gym and that it’s an easy sport”
If not a shooter, what would you have been?
An interior designer.
What’s the last thing you googled?
Special drinking bowls – that help dogs drink water without making a mess!
One myth about Indian shooters that you’d like to bust…?
That shooters don’t need to exercise or go to the gym and that it’s an easy sport.
Who has been your biggest inspiration?
Earlier it was my father and now it’s my husband Ronak Pandit, who is also a shooter and my coach too!
If you woke up as a man one day, what would you do?
I actually hope that this comes true. I love solo travel and want to visit the interiors of the country without any fear. As a man I may be able to do that at any time without any fear about my security.
A sports-inspired movie you enjoyed watching...?
What’s the theme song of your life?
Waka Waka by Shakira. Some of its lyrics resonate well with my life.
Define modern love.
It’s all about instant gratification. WhatsApp rules over all emotions now.
And the best way to handle trolls is…?
Ignore them. People are just looking at ways to find fault.
An actor you are crushing on right now?
The best thing about marriage is…?
You have a partner for life with whom you are building a life together. It’s a very calming experience.
When you are not shooting or practising, you are…?
Training my pup or doing something related to interior designing. I also love reading and travelling.
So, what’s your favourite travel destination?
Finally, what’s your advice to people with mental health problems?
When things that made you happy no longer give you joy, seek professional advice.
