After the legendary Prakash Padukone and Pullela Gopichand display in badminton, Parupalli Kashyap can definitely be regarded as the one who brought back glory to Indian Badminton in Men’s Singles.

 Kashyap’s Asthama

Suffering from Asthma which could have ended his career to becoming the first Indian Male player to reach the quarter-final stage in Olympics, Kashyap has seen it all.

Similar to many other cases, Kashyap’s badminton story started with a badminton training camp conducted by S.M Arif in Hyderabad. He started training at the age of 11.

His father had a transferable job which affected his health as he had Asthma and also his badminton training. After they finally settled in Hyderabad in late 2003, he started training at the Gopichand Academy.


The worst thing that happened to Kashyap was prior to the 2016 Rio Olympic Games where he had to go through surgeries due to his knee injury. Due to this injury he had to back out from tournaments which resulted in lowering of his rankings.

Kashyap was totally disappointed as he was in good form and definitely had a good chance to win a medal at the Olympics. His dream was literally shattered into pieces.

Playing Style

Kashyap is known for his aggressive game especially deep, fast and accurate smashes which definitely threaten the opponent.

Kashyap’s Personal Life

Kashyap has a liking for music and he listens to them in free time as well as he wants relaxation.

Parupalli Kashyap is married to Badminton Star Saina Nehwal.

He is the recipient of the Arjuna Award for his contribution in badminton.
