When Gavaskar went to Bangalore for a meeting, he reached the Prakash Padukone Badminton Academy, where he met his new hero.

PPBA co-founder, director and head coach Vimal Kumar told PTI, “He (Gavaskar) had a meeting in Bengaluru and decided to meet the young budding kids of the academy. Badminton and cricket are his two favorite sports. He stayed here with us for about an hour.
