The skipper of the Indian national football squad feels that lack of funding is one of the main reasons why football has not found its due place in country, “ If I do reach the final, it will show that people do love other games apart from cricket as well".
He justifies the absence of any controversies by saying, “Dance is not my bread and butter and I don"t hope to become a professional dancer or do an item number after the event . If I win good, but if I don"t I will still go back to my first love i.e Football. So why say anything bad about anybody. I am here to have fun and learn some dance in the bargain."
Baichung who does not get sufficient time to practice due to his foot ball commitments does not feel bad when judges pin points his flaws, “It"s not about my football so it"s cool. One of the high point of Jhalak till date has been getting the money from Sarojji," he ends.
