“I HATE MY TEACHER, Gopichand,” says India’s badminton star PV Sindhu in a tweet posted And while her tweet may say she hates her coach Pullela Gopichand, it’s actually her way of honoring the man behind her success. With everyone celebrating Teacher’s Day today, the 2016 Rio Olympics silver medallist has paid a moving tribute to her coach through an ad film that is now viral.
The commercial opens with Sindhu saying she hates her teacher and lists all the reasons why. “He is the reason for my scars, he shouts at me, he likes it when I sweat…” are some of the reasons listed. She then goes on to reveal the biggest reason why she “hates” him – “because he believes in me.”
I HATE MY TEACHER, Gopichand. Watch the video to know why! #sweatforgold @GatoradeIndia https://t.co/dBN4dDtRqT
