Kolkata: Her father is a former world No. 1 in badminton, sister a Bollywood heartthrob, but 17-year-old Anisha Padukone does not have any inclination to take up the racquet or dance around the trees in films.
Inspired by Tiger Woods, the youngest Padukone, however, aspires to be the world's finest woman golfer and wants her family to be recognised as Anisha's family, not Deepika or Prakash Padukone's.
"I want to reach a place where people would know me as my name. But not as Prakash Padukone's daughter or Deepika Padukone's sister. Obviously, it will be nice if they are known as from Anisha Padukone's family. Besides, it's an advantage to have both of them in the family... It makes me work even more harder and with more passion," Anisha said.
"Everyone's idol is Tiger Woods. Woods is a lot like (Roger) Federer at the top of his game. There definitely can only be one Tiger Woods. People may get close to it but I don't think anybody can match up to him... In ladies golf, Annika Sorenstam is one of the best the circuit has ever seen.
"She dominated over 10 years. It's easy to win but to be consistent and keep winning is really tough and she has done that."
She is also a big fan of "captain cool" Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
"I like his temperament a lot. He is someone who is very calm. You don't really see much emotion from him. It really helps the team as well because the captain needs to have a calming influence on everyone. Dhoni is my favourite cricketer at the moment."
