As far as Indian tennis is concerned, the name of Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupati continue to be on the top. The pair remains the most successful doubles pair in Indian tennis.

As a result, it makes sense to showcase their journey on the Big Screen. In the same light, ZEE5 would be launching a web series titled ‘Break Point’, slated to premiere on October 1.

On Friday, the trailer of the same was launched. It is a documentary-based web series, consisting of other tennis legends giving their views, like Sania Mirza, Bryan brother and others, offering their thoughts on the legendary pair.

Although it would depict their love story, at the same time, it would predominantly focus on their controversial break-up. Watch the trailer here:

During the launch of the trailer, Paes said, “It feels surreal to see myself on screen, laying my life out there for the world to see. But I realize that a lot has been said and speculated, and there’s no better way to put it to rest than by addressing it head-on. So, I am happy that we are getting a chance to tell our story firsthand and hope that the audience continues to admire our on-court partnership and respect our reasons to break up.”

Meanwhile, Bhupati reckoned, “All partnerships go through turbulence and highs and lows, and so did ours. While the world knows about our on-court partnership, this is the first time that they will get to know about our off-court lives and relationship. However, that should not take away our victories and achievements as, despite our differences, Lee-Hesh made history, and we are proud of that.”

‘Break Point’ has been directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari and Nitesh Tiwari. It would be a seven-episode series, available in four languages (English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu).
