Hi Haris,

This is a common thing.  Everyone prefers one side to receive.  It is a matter of giving yourself more opportunity to receive using your forehand.  Try moving a little to your left in your receiving position.  This will allow you to reach the ball better with your forehand.  Then make a rule for yourself during training that you only receive with your forehand if the serve comes to the forehand box.

You will start to develop the touch that is required.
