Sindhu then went on to talk about how she wants to come clean with her feelings and tells fans that they may be confused while reading. She further writes about the coronavirus pandemic and how it has impacted her. However, there’s a major twist at the end.

Phew! That gave me a “mini heart attack” in the first half! Got me there! But I guess many people won’t get the message you’re trying to imply! They’ll think you actually retired! Nice effort though 👍🏻
