Legendary Tennis stars Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi are set to collaborate with filmmakers Nitesh Tiwari and Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari for a new web docu-series titled, ‘Break Point’. The series showcasing a special behind-the-scenes narrative on the duo’s 1999 Wimbledon win will stream on ZEE5.
Sharing his excitement about the project with a photographs, Tiwari stated:
“Excited and honoured to bring the untold story of tennis legends @leanderpaes and @mbhupathy to the world along with @ashwinytiwari on #Zee5.”
The first Indian pair who won at Wimbledon, will narrate stories and share anecdotes about their friendship and camaraderie; and their historic achievements and international acclaim. After a long stint of doubles partnership, the pair had a brief fallout earlier, but all seems sorted now.
A few days back Paes reminisced and tweeted their photo from the day and stated:
“22 years ago today, we became the first Indians to win @Wimbledon. As two young boys all we dreamt of was making our country proud! 🎾🌱🏆 @Maheshbhupathi #LeeHesh.”
Bhupathi in his reply to the tweet wrote:
“Hmmm ..That was special!! Do you think it’s time to write another chapter? @Leander #LeeHesh.”
This little exchange between the two created a buzz on the internet, leaving the fans speculating if the winning duo, had something of a reunion on the cards.
The makers have not confirmed the release date of the untitled project yet.
