PV Sindhu from Biryani to Silver

Here is Biryani connection of PV Sindhu who won a silver medal for India in Olympics women’s badminton for the first time in 92 years. In an interview with a TV channel after Sindhu won the silver medal, her mother said that they would celebrate Sindhu’s victory in a big way since she has created history. When asked about Sindhu’s favourite dish, mother said that she is much fond of Biryani and they would include this tasty dish during celebration meal.

the 21-year-old Hyderabadi girl is more interested in watching the latest Bollywood movies that she had to miss and the ice-cream and biryani she could not eat in the lead-up to the Rio Games. A movie buff and a foodie, Sindhu is like any other young girl, growing up in a metropolitan. (BAI announces cash reward for Sindhu, Gopichand)

Sindhu, the toast of the nation, after a brave effort against world number one Carolina Marin, wants to return home and watch Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘Rustom’ and feast on Hyderabad’s famous biryani.

“Sindhu has been asking me about all the new Hindi movies – Rustom and Mohenjo Daro. She also wanted to eat ice-creams and biryani before that but her mother refused to indulge her then,” Sindhu’s father PV Ramana told India Today. (I’ve done it, says Sindhu after winning Olympic Silver)

BiryaniRamana, himself an Arjuna awardee, said he ensured his daughter did not eat food that was not cooked at home after repeated warnings from the World Anti-Doping Agency. Narsingh Yadav, it maybe recalled, ate food that he alleged was spiked at a Sports Authority of India (SAI) hostel and was eventually banned for four years by the Court of Arbitration in Sports (CAS) at a hearing in Rio, 12 hours before his scheduled bout.

“We had to be strict because it was the question of her whole career,” he said.

Sindhu herself would not have complained. She has now done what no other woman in India has ever done – won a Silver at the Olympics. She is only the fifth Indian woman to win an Olympic medal and only the second shuttler after Saina Nehwal (who won Bronze at the London Games) to wear a medal around her neck.

Sindhu said she was elated and that it was now time to celebrate. And it looks like a lot of her celebrations would spill over to Hyderabad, where the champion’s parents would be waiting to take her out for a well-deserved family evening.
