PV Sindhu after Olympics Silver Medal lands Rs 50cr Deals
Today While Speaking to the Press, Tuhin Mishra, managing director and co-founder of Baseline, told TOI that Sindhu’s success was there for all to see and also praised her humbleness.According to a report in the Times of India, the three-year deal is said to be worth Rs 50 crore, highest by a non-cricketer.
Sindhu became the first-ever woman silver medallist from India at the Olympics when she finished runners-up in the singles badminton at the Rio Games, losing to Spain’s Carolina Marin in the final.However, it has to be remembered that earlier Olympic medal winners such as Abhinav Bindra or Rajyavardhan Rathore met with little success when it came to bagging big-bang endorsement deals. Sindhu’s deal win has to be seen in this context.
Two non-cricketer sports women, who have managed to get a good amount of endorsement deals, are badminton star Saina Nehwal, bronze medalist in 2012 Olympics, and tennis star Sania Mirza. As per the 2015 Forbes Celeb list, Saina’s earnings from endorsements and BWF World Superseries stood at Rs 16.99 crore, while Sania, meanwhile, earned Rs 13.25 crore.
According to the magazine, Saina had inked a Rs 25 crore deal with IOS Sports & Entertainment for two years. It termed Sania as “India’s most successful professional woman tennis player”. Saina was ranked 39 and Sania 38 in the list.
