Bollywood star Aamir Khan interviewed him on television. International clothing brand Bjorn Borg raised money for his group.

Formula 1’s launch season is well underway, with just over a month to go before the 2019 season kicks off in Australia, and McLaren is the latest team to pull the covers off its 2019 car.
McLaren’s iconic papaya orange colour continues to dominate the Renault-powered MCL34’s livery, with the car now featuring new blue elements, which McLaren states are a nod to the team’s broader racing heritage. The car will make its on-track debut at the first pre-season test at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Spain next week.
This year, McLaren will field an all-new driver line-up for the first time in 12 years. Carlos Sainz has joined the team, after previously driving for Renault, with F1 rookie Lando Norris partnering him.
“The MCL34 is the result of an immense amount of hard work and dedication throughout our team. We’re all committed, motivated and united in our ambition to return McLaren to competitiveness, and the MCL34 is only the start of this process,” said McLaren Racing’s CEO Zak Brown.
“We have a fresh driver pairing, who together represent the new generation of Formula 1 talent, and are an integral part of the team and our collective effort to advance McLaren forward.”
In an effort to re-establish itself as a contender for race wins, McLaren has made some key new signings – former Toro Rosso technical director James Key will now serve as McLaren’s new technical chief, while former Porsche World Endurance Championship boss Andreas Seidl has been appointed as the team’s new managing director.

Audi has revealed the first official sketches of its Q4 E-tron concept ahead of the car’s unveiling, which is due in March at the Geneva motor show.
It has not yet been made clear if this concept directly previews the same Q4 (expected to launch later this year) which has already been spotted in camouflage undergoing winter testing. It does, however, provide some insight into the next generation of Audi's electric models following the E-tron SUV and E-tron GT sports sedan.
The sketches show a compact SUV with coupé-like styling, an expansive front grille and illuminated E-tron branding on the front bumper and side sills. The car seems to have traditional door mirrors instead of the system of digital cameras and interior touchscreens which were offered on the E-tron SUV. Audi’s Matrix LED headlights seem to be featured as well.
A sketch of the car's interior shows a driver-focused dashboard that borrows elements from the new and recently launched Q3, with buttons largely removed in favour of touch-sensitive screens and panels.
The production of the Q4 E-tron is expected to begin in early 2021 – a year after the standard Q4 model is due to go on sale.

Killed, jailed and bullied, journalists are under growing pressure worldwide. Brave individuals such as Maria Ressa in the Philippines need our supportThe arrest in the Philippines of the courageous journalist Maria Ressa, founder and head of the news organisation Rappler, is a disgrace. It is also one she foresaw. Rodrigo Duterte and his supporters have shown little tolerance for anyone attempting to hold him to account, as Rappler has done, in particular over the “war on drugs” which has killed thousands. Ressa is accused of cyber-libel under a law introduced months after the alleged offence. She previously had to post bail over tax fraud charges which she said were trumped up to harass and intimidate Rappler. Its licence has been revoked and its political correspondent barred from presidential palace briefings.Ressa has called the campaign against Rappler a kind of back-handed compliment: it shows that the president sees it as a threat. Powerful interests at all levels, and those who bolster them, have reason to bully critics into silence. The Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi was one of 80 journalists killed last year, while hundreds more were locked up. A Ghanaian journalist who exposed football corruption was shot dead in January. Two Afghan journalists were murdered in their radio station last week. Many more are silenced by violence, threats, harassment or jail. In Myanmar, Reuters journalists Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo have lost their appeal against seven-year sentences for reporting on a military-led massacre of Rohingya Muslims in Rakhine state.
