“Khel ho ya jung, jitega wohi jiska nishana kabhi chukey nahi. Kabhi desh ke liye.. kabhi khud ke liye.. iss baar javelin utha raha hu Black Panther ke liye. November 11. Don’t miss the action. #WakandaForever @Marvel_India,” Chopra captioned the post.

Talking about his involvement in the film and what he intends to do, Chopra stated – “I’m ecstatic to be a part of this adventure, and like Black Panther, I hope to encourage people all over the world to never give up on their aspirations. As a great Marvel fan, I can’t wait to see the film and learn about Wakanda’s new adventure.” 

“Black Panther is about a fierce warrior, a hero who is willing to offer everything to battle for his people and his country,” he added.

Neeraj Chopra became the first Indian to win an Olympic gold medal in athletics when he won the men’s javelin competition. It was also the country’s first gold medal in a track and field event.

Chopra, India’s best javelin thrower and the current Asian and Commonwealth Games champion, was raised in the village of Khandra in Haryana’s Panipat district and had never even seen a javelin, much less imagined becoming the first in the country to hurl one. Neeraj Chopra is now the primary cause of countless Indian teenagers’ interest in javelin.
