In addition to her scoring prowess, Chari also ranks fifth in rebounds and blocks, as well as double-doubles.

Furthermore, she also holds the record for the most free throws made in the program’s history.

However, the couple claims that their son is on a whole different level than them.

But, Kon disagrees as he claims that his parents, especially his mother, were ‘dominating’ the court with just her sheer presence. 

This was after he watched a video of her which was gifted by his father on Christmas.

The couple shares their love by exchanging such little gifts like these, which hold huge significance in their love life. 

Finally, they are blessed with five sons, which includes Kon. All of the boys are trying to follow in their parent’s footsteps in one way or another.
