While entire Indian media is going gaga over India’s one of the most respected sports person, Sachin Tendulkar, behind the scene states an entirely different story.
According to the reports, as an honour to our Olympic winners, Sachin Tendulkar, Goodwill Ambassador of the Indian team at the Rio Olympics, handed over BMW keys to silver medalist PV Sindhu, bronze Sakshi Malik, gymnast Dipa Karmakar and coach Pullela Gopichand at a function in Hyderabad on Sunday. The news got hyped and went viral all over Indian media, be it print, online or electronic channels.
Now, let’s check on the real story behind the scene. The BMW was actually bought and gifted by Hyderabad-based businessman Chamundeshwarnath, who also happens to be the president of the district Badminton Association.
