Coach Gopi Misses Saina's Wedding, Courtesy Sindhu

Other day India's ace badminton stars Saina Nehwal and Parupalli Kashyap, who have tied the nuptials couple of days ago, have hosted a grand reception party. Whether it is at the wedding or the reception, the one person they missed badly is none other than their coach.

Yes, the absence of legendary coach Pullela Gopichand, who has made gems for the country in the field of badminton, is clearly visible at the reception of these two badminton stars who have got wedded after 10 years of courtship. And then, the reason behind Gopi's absence is due to PV Sindhu.

No, it's not the rivalry between Sindhu and Saina that stopped Gopi, though there was a buzz that Saina hasn't invited the former and her family to the wedding. Owing to this buzz, PV Sindhu's parents are also not seen at Saina's reception.

Actually, the popular coach booked his return tickets from Ghanzhou to India, in a bid to attend the reception, but suddenly Sindhu surprised everyone by winning the final of BWF World Tour. That made Gopi cancel his flight and stay back in China as media and everyone want to talk to him. That's why Gopi missed the wedding.
