Chandigarh cueist Ranveer to feature in documentaryJanuary 19, 2022, Chandigarh
National champion Ranveer Duggal is all set to become the city’s first cueist to get featured in a documentary by news presenter Alisha Singh on world’s young achievers.
The 17-year-old prodigy recently defeated Dhruv Patel of Gujarat to win the sub-junior title of the National Snooker Championship in Bhopal.
Alisha, a United Kingdom-based news presenter, has associated with the Chandigarh Billiards and Snooker Association to cover the achievements of Duggal. “Alisha is a well-known broadcaster, who has worked with the likes of late Alex ‘Hurricane’ Higgins, Ronnie O Sullivan and others. She is expected to be in India as soon as the Covid pandemic subsides, to shoot and interview me,” said Duggal.
Duggal hogged the limelight after winning bronze in the U-16 World Snooker Championship held at Tyumen, in 2019. He started playing the game at the age of seven years. Duggal lost his father Sandeep Duggal, a national-0level cueist, in 2015 and since then his aim has been to fulfil his father’s dream of winning a professional world title.
The youngster has the honours of becoming the youngest ever pool player in India to participate in the National Pool Championship, the youngest player to participate in the 6-Red National Snooker Championship and the National Snooker and Billiards Championship. He became the junior and sub-junior champion in the Chandigarh State Snooker Championship in 2015 before becoming the Chandigarh State Champion in the U-18 and U-21 snooker categories in 2016. In 2017, he was selected for the Indian U-16 snooker team for the IBSF Snooker Championship held in St Petersburg, Russia.
