Indian badminton stars Kidambi Srikanth and Ashwini Ponnapa, who are a part of the fourth season of Premier badminton League (PBL) pranked some kids in comical fashion.
The duo are among India’s most popular badminton players but they showed they are superb actors too. The video, which was made in collaboration with Red Bulls saw the ‘baddies’ in the makeover of old people, who were initially trying to play badminton with the youngsters but struggling due to ‘old-age ailments’ like backache and lack of strength. However, in a few minutes, the plot takes a comical twist as the shuttlers unleash their ‘real’ inner self on the court, leaving everyone watching baffled.
