Actor Nasser, who is also the president of the South Indian Artistes Association (SIAA) also known as the Nadigar Sangam, is convinced that India will win a gold medal in swimming in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
The actor, who took part in an event to launch the anthem and jerseys of the Tamil film industry’s team that will participate in the Celebrity Badminton League, said, “I am very happy that P V Sindhu’s win has drawn all our attention to other sports other than cricket as well. I see a lot of youngsters gearing up well and working hard.”
To cite an instance, Nasser said, “For instance, actor Thalaivasal Vijay‘s daughter Jayaveena Vijay is doing exceptionally well in swimming. She is making great strides in the sport and I am sure she will win a gold for us.”
Interestingly, Jayaveena had won her first gold medal at the National level swimming championships held in Kochi this year.
