Diagonal Sudoku (Fun With Sudoku #209)

There was a time when I used to loathe Diagonal Sudoku. I could remember Times Sudoku Championship 2007 finals in which I was doing quite good and suddenly I made a mistake in Diagonal Sudoku which made me slip to the 5th spot. However later I started loving this Sudoku variation especially after creating few Sudoku puzzles of Diagonal Sudoku type. Today's Diagonal Sudoku, I created for World Sudoku Federation Sudoku Grand Prix 2016 Indian round. This Sudoku was the highest pointer in the set and of course, was one of the toughest puzzles in the set. I tried to create an arrow pattern for each of the quadrants and tried to avoid putting any numbers of the main diagonals. Solving this Sudoku in less than 7 minutes will be challenging :) 
This Diagonal Sudoku I am posting as 209th Sudoku in Fun With Sudoku Series.
