PV Sindhu popularity graph is soaring high these days and the latest or we can say the biggest feather in her cap is the 50 crore deal that she has signed with Chinese brand Li Ning. It will be a four-year deal and Sindhu will get 40 crores of the deal money for the sponsorship and the rest 10 crores will be for the equipment.
The Chinese brand Li Ning also signed a 35 crore deal with Srikanth, another ace Indian shuttler in January this year. PV Sindhu is the only Indian badminton player to have won an Olympics silver medal and a world championship silver medal. After her success at the Olympics, Sindhu signed a deal worth more than 100 crores with Baseline Ventures, a sports management company. This will be the 14th product that Sindhu will be sponsoring under the management deal.
Speaking to the media Sindhu said, “I’m happy to be associated with Li Ning again“. Sindhu and Srikanth were associated with Li Ning earlier also for a couple of years but moved to Yonex. It is speculated that the deal with Yonex was for 1.5 crores a year.
