“I usually avoid talking about people’s personal lives. What I mean here is that he suffered some setbacks in his personal life, but he came back really well after that. I’ve been following his personal life and reading quite a bit about it. And I really like the way he’s back. I would say do well with him. This is what attitude is all about.”


Despite the failed first marriage, Karthik remained focused on cricket. Currently, he is happily married to famous squash player Dipika Pallikal. The couple became parents to a set of twins last year.
