Commenting on judging Renault MTV Roadies X4, Sushil Kumar said, “TV for me is but a medium of communication and this is a good platform to engage with the youth, share my views and experiences with them. I follow strict discipline in my sport and I would expect the same on the show.” Speaking about being aggressive on the show, he adds, “One can be aggressive and gentle at the same time. Use aggression to win tasks.”
