Sivakarthikeyan meets weight-lifting champion
Indian athletes brought laurels to India at the recently held Common Wealth Games which were held in Australia. Sathish Kumar Sivalingam from Tamil Nadu brought pride to the country by winning a gold medal at the 77 kg weight-lifting category. The Prime Minister Narendra Modi appreciated his win by posting a tweet.
India’s weightlifters are also lifting our position in the medal’s tally. Well done Sathish Kumar Sivalingam for clinching a Gold in the 77 kg weight category. He has entered the history books by winning consecutive Golds in 2 CWGs, Glasgow 2014 and Gold Coast 2018: PM #GC2018 pic.twitter.com/0IjFIl0fji

Sivakarthikeyan has previously worked on sports based films like Ethir Neechal in which he played the role of a marathon runner, and Maan Karate, in which he played the role of a boxer. It was interesting to note that Sivakarthikeyan and Sathish Kumar Sivalingam bonded over a good chat. But does this mean that Sivakarthikeyan would play the role of a weight-lifting champion in his next film?
Let’s wait and watch.
