World Champion shuttler PV Sindhu will soon be featured in a sports series titled The A-Game.  The series will be the third instalment of  Double Trouble and The Finish Line, IANS reported. With this show, Sindhu marks her OTT platform debut.


"I would like to congratulate Baseline on conceptualising shows that allow athletes to go back in time and relive those monumental moments that shaped their careers," said the Olympic silver medallist Sindhu as per a media release. Sindhu, the first Indian woman to win a silver medal at the Olympics, said that the show will feature five athletes across episodes.

Expressing that she is honoured to be a part of the show, Sindhu further added that it "will take a deep dive into how elite athletes think and react in high pressure situations." Five Indian athletes, who scripted historic achievements in Indian sport, will share their stories to find the top spot, the release noted.

The show will document a series of interviews and biopics on various Indian sports stars. In each episode, the athletes will narrate a particular moment that will be captured through pictures and video footage to help the audience relate to how they brought out their victories at crucial moments.

High on Olympics dream

The badminton star, who scripted history by becoming the first Indian to win a World Championships gold medal last year, claimed silver at the Rio Olympics in 2016. After making her debut in 2009, in 2018, she made it to the Forbes List Of 30 Under 30 Asia list. The Hyderabad-based badminton player is among India’s favourites for another Olympic medal at the Tokyo 2021 Games. The 24-year-old has recently laid the foundation of her own badminton academy in Chennai.
