Paras was very excited on this occasion and thanked his fans and well-wishers for his victory. He said, “I name this victory to my country. A sportsperson always waits for this occasion when he can make his country proud. I feel exalted that I got this opportunity.”

He further said, “I would like to thank my family and fans whose faith in me has made this impossible looking task possible. This medal belongs to India. This is not the end of the journey, rather it’s the start and I hope that your love and faith will always be with me.”

Meanwhile, Raj Mahajan, uncle of the silver medal winner and famous musician said, “It feels really special when your son achieves anything good and this is a big achievement. Many congratulations and blessings to Paras on this victory. May God keep blessing him for more.” One must know that Raj Mahajan’s name was in limelight as a probable contender of Big Boss. His name was already doing rounds in the media and now this victory of Paras is once again going to become headlines. Producer-Director Raj Mahajan is a popular name in music industry. He is also Chairman of Moxx Music Company.

Uncle Girish Aryan Gupta also delightfully shared his feelings about his nephew’s victory. He said, “Paras was always crazy and passionate about doing something no one has done earlier in the family. He was always busy in his own world. He was very lean and thin in childhood and people used to make fun of his appearance. These sarcastic comments stayed in his heart and such words always do wonders when taken positively. So, the lean and thin Paras of those days has now become a champion. His weakness has become his strength. I feel so proud that he is our son.”

Paras was the youngest participant in the senior category who won this title and silver medal. On his victory his 85-year-old philanthropist grandfather-grandmother, Avinash Chand Gupta and Indrawati Gupta said, “From his childhood Paras showed that he will do something special. I am very happy to see what he has achieved today. I along with whole country feel very proud of Paras.”

Paras’ father Sunil Gupta shared some interesting habits of Paras during his childhood. He said, “In his childhood, Paras used to stand in front of the mirror for hours staring at himself making different poses. At that time, nobody imagined that one day he will achieve something like this. It makes us feel proud when we are addressed as parents of a son who made the country’s name shine across the globe.”

Piyush Gupta (twin brother of Paras Gupta) was also very excited about his victory and said, “I always saw him doing something different. During childhood, I was more into studies while he was into bodybuilding and fitness. Though we have the same appearance our habits are completely different. Today I feel like I have won and all his achievements are mine too. I am eagerly waiting for his return. He has made our country proud. We are awaiting the return of the champion.”

The whole country, his family as well as fans are feeling proud of Paras’ victory. Paras’ family is continuously receiving phone calls and congratulatory messages since the news of his victory. Paras’ mother Kalpana Gupta, sisters Aashi, Rashi, Ritika, Khushi, Bhoomi, Mishthi and Saumya are happy to hear the news.
