After the Great Khali, a new wrestler from India, Rajesh Kumar who is said to be even taller than him, is set to enter the international arena.

Meet Rajesh, alias 'New Khali', from village Dhanora in Ambala district. The 7 feet 5 inch, father of two children who until one and a half years ago worked in the fields in his village, is now set to fly to Japan to take part in the World Wide Entertainment (WWE) training. The 39-year-old, with a towering presence, weighs 152 kg.

Rajesh, who trained for almost one and a half years under Randhir Asthir in Jalandhar, said, "Once my training in Japan is complete, I will hopefully be selected by WWE to enter their international championships."

Revealing his fitness mantra, Rajesh said that his daily diet includes 40 eggs, 5-6 kg chicken, 7 litres of milk, 6-7 kg fruits and more than 30 chappatis. "I have around 7-8 meals a day," he said, adding that he undergoes training for seven hours every day.

The youngest sibling in a family of eight, Rajesh considers the Great Khali as his role model. "When Khali came to India two years ago, I had the opportunity to meet him. Khali motivated me to join this field and I haven't looked back since," said Rajesh, who had no plans of being a wrestler before he met Khali.

Rajesh was in town to seek divine blessing from two Gurudwaras. Hailing from a humble background, Rajesh is being supported and promoted by the Himachal Youth Brigade. SP Oberoi, Chairman of 'Sarbat da Bhala' NGO, has also promised to support Rajesh monetarily and otherwise, and ensure that he makes the country proud.
