Gossips and discussions don’t seem to stop anytime soon about India’s Pride PV Sindhu and the miracle done by her!
The first Indian to have won a gold at World Badminton Championship!
Now that’s something! These Indian athletes are taking the competition to a whole other level these days! Be it, PV Sindhu or Dutee Chand.
This is nothing but the roar of our Lionesses for the world!
Anyway, since PV Sindhu has suddenly become a social media sensation and most searched celebrity, we have brought to you some of the ‘Inside Information’ about her just for you!
Thank me later!
PV Sindhu celebrates her birthday on 5th July, is 24 years old and 5’10 in height. Her parents were National Level Volleyball Players and her sister was a National Level handball player, who later on dropped sports and went on to become a Doctor.
Interesting fact: Even PV Sindhu wanted to become a doctor in her childhood. Nevertheless, she has done an MBA.
Her favorite pass time like any other millennial is to watch movies! Chalo at least this made me believe she is human just like us!
On that note, she loves having biryani, ice cream, pasta, and pizza on one of her cheat days!
She is a huge fan of Mahesh Babu, Prabhas (Who isn’t?!), Hritik Roshan, Ranveer Singh, and Deepika Padukone. Elite choice, I must say!

In 2018, Forbes ranked her at seventh position in its list of “Highest-Paid Female Athletes.” whereas, in 2019, she was ranked thirteenth for the same.
Diet and Workout
The glory comes at a price. PV Sindhu works out for at least 6-8 hours every day! Damn girl, you’re setting some high standards!
Her workouts include 100 push-ups, 200 sit-ups, running, yoga and swimming as well.
To maintain the caliber of such extreme routine, she takes carbs and proteins.
Milk, eggs, and fruits are breakfast staples for Sindhu.
For lunch, she enjoys meat with some vegetables and rice.
For dinner, there is the no-carb approach and Sindhu eats grilled meat and veggies.
Hard to believe she enjoys only one cheat day in a month or two when she can eat whatever she wants! Guess success and fame do require a lot of sacrifices.
So these were some of the unknown facts about PV Sindhu. We congratulate her on her achievement and wish her luck for the future!
