Having represented India in the squash circles for the past two decades, Saurav Ghosal is excited to take up a new role and help inspire the younger generation through his new web series.
"Its an absolute pleasure, it’s exciting to speak with each top athlete from various fields, to understand their stories and get into their minds, and basically figure out what they did when they were bringing glory to India," Saurav Ghosal said in an exclusive interview with Sportskeeda.
I’ve been inspired listening to them and hopefully that kind of translates across when everyone watches the web series and it inspires kids in India to dream for the stars and hopefully produce more champions in the future" he added.

Saurav Ghosal himself is one of India's most respected athletes, having won seven medals at the Asian Games apart from bringing India accolades from the Commonwealth Games and the South Asian Games.
Having played a major part in India's sporting folklore thus far, Saurav Ghosal hopes that the show will, in a way, help youngsters carve out a career for themselves.
"The point of the show in essence was to extricate the secrets behind these athletes who have gone on to become world champions or Olympic medallists. It was a lot of pride but there's also so much to learn from all of them. Hopefully people will be inspired to achieve great things," the veteran squash player said.
The first episode of 'The Finish Line' will release today (28th August, 2020) at 6 PM, and will feature Indian shooting legend Abhinav Bindra as the first guest of the show.
