Badshah khan feels greatfull  for being trained  by a coach who himself is a world famous wrestler – The Great Khali. It was not easy for Badshah to get direct training from the Great Khali.He was trained for test trail after that. His test trial were taken twice to check his potential,only then he was able to get training from the The Great Khali.
Pro-Wrestling is an independent sport.It costs a lot. Badshah khan is spending all the training expenses till date from his pocket. Due to weak economic condition, many boys of Badshah’s village and neighborhood could not come in this precious field of wrestling. Although the Great Khali’s academy is training about 100 boys from different states and regions. Badshah Khan feels that if the government pays some attention to this, then their struggle can be reduced to a great extent. Every player does not play only for himself but plays for his country as well . Due to financial instability, many wrestlers were not able to continue their training and make J&K proud by representing them at National and International levels. Badshah feels that just like Haryana government is encouraging it’s native players of their state, similarly the government of Jammu and Kashmir should also pay attention towards it.
Regarding diet, Badshah khan said that balanced diet is very important for sound health and physique  , for that he take non-spicy food, good amount of protein,boiled chicken, eggs, soups, fruits  and much more healthy food.He ignore any kind of greasy foods and sweets because they cause the most adverse effects on the body.
Badshah Khan miss his family, his childhood friends a lot but due  to his very strict scheduled  training he is not able to visit his home. But he is fine with it as he knows a person have to lose something to gain something.To become a world Champion wrestler he has to be focused.
The happiest moment in the life of Badshah Khan was when Krish Master, a famous wrestler of the world, came as the chief guest in the wrestling event . Krish Master  praised him in front of about 80 performers and said that he has been impressed with the king’s fight and the king has that potential and courage of becoming world champion wrestler.
Baadshah khan said that he had never cheated himself , he has always kept learning with  honesty. Many people go to the club ,pub, disco, drink wine and party,but I have never done this. I am sure that the hard work will never go away. From school times  Baadshah Khan  started watching wrestling on TV and develop intrest towards wrestling and wanted to become a wrestler.
