Anupam Kher, a seasoned actor, recently paid a visit to PV Sindhu, a world-class badminton player, and was utterly floored by the abundance of trophies and medals she had amassed over the years. Sindhu is one of India's all-time most successful athletes. The 67-year-old actor uploaded a video of their encounter and gave viewers a tour of her home, showing off her huge trophy collection.
Sindhu gave a detailed account of all of her achievements and the pride she brought to the nation via sport, beginning with the medals she earned at the Olympics and Under-16 competitions.

Kher said the following in a video showcasing Sindhu's awards and medals on Instagram Reels, “One and only champion, look at this wall, I used to be very proud that mere wall pe kaafi saare awards hai par ye toh kamaal hai, (that wall has loads of awards but this is amazing) oh my god." “Yaha toh jagah hi nhi hai, bilkul jagah nhi hai (There is no space here)," he added.
As they are running out of space for trophies and medals, the actor-author also claimed in the video that he spoke with Sindhu's father about taking over another floor. The talented artist described how he was captivated by the number of feathers the badminton player had placed on her adorned headgear and felt "fortunate" to have been allowed to visit her home.
“This is AMAZING: Recently I had the privilege of visiting CHAMP @pvsindhu1’s home. She very humbly gave me a tour of her achievements! Right from the age of 8! I was completely bowled by her awards, trophies & humility! She is our daughter of India, our honour. She is our motivating hero. Jai ho, Jai hind," Kher captioned the video.
On the other side, Sindhu also posted a photo of their encounter on social media, claiming it was an "honour" to get to know the seasoned actor. “Had the fortune of spending time with one of the all-time greats of Indian cinema. The laughs, the memories and quality conversation. What an honour," she wrote.
An ankle injury sustained during the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham has put the 27-year-old Sindhu, a two-time Olympic medalist who took home silver in women's singles at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro and bronze in Tokyo last year, on the road to recovery. In contrast, Anupam Kher is currently enjoying the success of his films The Kashmir Files and Karthikeya 2 at the moment.
