Apart from being a professional actor, Ejaz Khan had a keen interest in sports. In school days he played almost every other sport he could find. Cricket, basketball and hockey were among his favourite sports. Recalling the days when he used to play hockey he said, “I am very proud to say that I play hockey myself. I used to play hockey in school. I used to play in the left out position which was one of the most difficult positions to play because you have to play with the opposite face. You have to turn the hockey stick around to play your game well. I quite enjoyed my stint with hockey,”
National Sports Day is celebrated to commemorate the birth anniversary of the Legendary Hockey Player, Major Dhyanchand. Recently the country’s most prestigious sports award, Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna was changed to Major Dhyanchand Khel Ratna.
