If you’d imagine an ace cricketer to host a television show, you can be sure it will be a sports related series. And, Umeed India makes a compelling case. For the first time, versatile cricketer Virender Sehwag will host a television show.
Umeed India will showcase groundbreaking stories of diversified, intrepid athletes aiming for glory at Olympics 2020. For the 13-part series, Virender reinstates the fact that Olympic stars never ‘just’ appear at the Games. Their stories start in small villages, where they train every day – with one aim in mind – bringing home that Gold.
Watch Virender travel to their training bases, chronicling exciting moments in the home environment besides interviewing the athletes’ families and coaching staff. The episodes feature inspiring stories of OP Karhana, Suyash Yadav, Avtar Singh and Dutee Chand along with Sakshi Malik, Vinesh Poghat among many other Olympians. Can we find the 2020 medallist for India in 2017?
