Swimming is his first love: Pooja Banerjee

Actress Pooja Banerjee is ecstatic as she is currently supporting her husband Sandeep Sejwal who is a national swimmer, Arjuna awardee and contesting for India in the Asian Games which is currently happening in Jakarta.

Speaking from there Pooja says,”Its a surreal feeling, a great moment for all of us. This is the first time ever I am supporting him from the venue itself, my mother in law and my brother is also with me. Rooting and cheering for my country India is a great feeling. Wearing the tricolor t-shirt and then the tricolor flag it’s an amazing feeling.

Dating and then married a sportsman is a different responsibility for Pooja as she adds,”Dating and marrying a sportsman is literally being out there all the time. Because you need to give him a lot of time, patience and mental peace to him. He is playing for our nation that I understand and I know that nation is his first love. So, as a matter of fact, I know that swimming is his first love, not me.

She also adds,”Being a swimmer myself I understand his passion, but there were times when the girlfriend and now the wife in me will react but then I used to tell myself that his priority towards swimming is main, I have to give him that space and time so he can put all his energy in swimming.
