Ashish Singh opened up about his journey in a recent interview to Hindustan Times, "Their ridicule motivated me to do better in life. By the grace of God, my height became my biggest plus in life and took me to places that most people can only dream of,” said Ashish.

“It was painful to bear all that mocking. Now, I am happy that those people treat me with respect and dignity.
