In Just 60 Seconds, Badminton Champ Saina Nehwal Smashes Those Who Discouraged Her Dream

How many times has your career choice been questioned by your neighbour, relative, friends, even your parents? How often have loved ones questioned your ability to succeed in your chosen field just because it wasn’t mainstream? Aunties who wonder what artists really do, or friends who think you don’t work because you’re a musician or parents who call the online platform you work for an ‘online magazine’.

With this new ad by Savlon, Saina Nehwal smashes (literally) all those who told her she wouldn’t be able to become a badminton player, and with that, drives home a very important point we all need to remember – discouraging a child to follow their dream would hurt them more than any bruise or cut.

As Saina gears to represent India at the Rio Olympics, show her your support!

Win or lose, @NSaina we are proud of you! #CheerForIndia
