The 23-year-old cannot believe that she will be right up there with the likes of Sachin Tendulkar and Leander Paes.
"I am really honoured to be considered for this award. I had expected an Arjuna award after my achievement, but to get recommended for a Khel Ratna straight away is just fantastic news," she said while speaking to ANI.

"When I was a child I use to hear the names of Sachin Tendulkar and Leander Paes being bestowed with the honour and I would wonder if I would ever be in their place and make my country proud. Now that the moment has come, I'm thrilled that I'm joining the ranks of the greats," she added.
Talking about her coach Kuldeep Singh being possibly recommended for the Dronacharya award, Malik stated that he deserved the honour in every way, as he was responsible for her success at Rio.
