Rahul Gandhi says marriage will happen when it does, reveals has black belt in Japanese martial arts

New Delhi: When it comes to getting married, Rahul Gandhi says he is all for destiny. An otherwise confident-looking Rahul Gandhi seemed stumped when boxer Vijender Singh asked him at an industry event on Thursday when he planned to tie the knot.

"This is an old question. I believe in destiny. 'Jab hogi, tab hogi' (It will happen when it does)," he replied when Singh quizzed him about his marital plans. Asked what importance he gave to sports, the 47-year-old scion of the Gandhi family stressed sports would always be important to him.

"I do sports for at least an hour every day, though I have not been able to do so in the last three or four months," he said, adding that he did not go public with his sports. But when Singh urged him to post a video on his sporting activities, the Congress vice president said he would do so if it helped encourage the youth to take up games.

Gandhi revealed he played several games, exercised, ran and swam. He added that he was a black belt in Aikido, a form of Japanese martial art involving traditional weapons.
