And amidst all the happiness, Sindhu was visibly excited after her win.
“I could not hold back my passions when I saw the National flag flying high and heard the National anthem,” she replies, adding, “There’s zero like making the nation proud. That my performance could give hope and inspiration to many is a wonderful feeling. Hard work is the key to success. Also, the support of our parents is important. One enjoys the sport; it should not be a need.”
And this win has got Sindhu, who won the silver medal at the Rio Olympics in – 2016, a lot of love & praise. “In life, you constantly win some and lose some. When you lose, you don’t let that failure bog you down, but you work on yourself and come back more powerful. Every time I lose a match, I examine what performed wrong & work in that area. But things are changed when you get. This win has given -me a lot of courage. It was overwhelming to receive so multiple messages from people. I want to maintain making everyone proud,” she says.
However, there is no success without sacrifice, and Sindhu’s journey so far has been no separate. Apart from supporting rigorous training keeping a strict diet, shuttler stayed away from her phone possible. So, when she finally use it lately, Sindhu made sure that she replied to everyone who wished her, especially her fans.
Meanwhile, her gold medal has opened Sonu Sood, who is producing a biopic on her life, the perfect climax moment for the film. “Yes, he said to me. But I could only talk to him for a few minutes. He is going… So I’m yet to find -out more about it. All I can tell is that the film is in safe hands and I am positive he will do everything is best for the film. He has my support.”
Does she believe that Sonu should wait till next year as she is training for gold at the 2020 Olympics? Sindhu laughs softly before adding, “I don’t understand what to say, but if we meet, I will tell him this.”
PV Sindhu wants DeepikaPadukone, There are also considerations about who will be performing her coach Pullela Gopichand, in the movie. While Sonu had first told us that he would be representing the character, the latest news suggests that Akshay Kumar might be roped in.
“I don’t know much of it at the moment. Once I meet-Sonu Sood, I will get more transparency… Much like others, I am also watching forward to the film,” Sindhu shares.
So which character does she think is best suited to play her on-screen? “Would want Deepika Padukone to play the character. She had performed the play and is a great actor too. But then the authors would take the final choice, and I trust their decision,” she replies.
