Hosted by the renowned television presenter and actor, Samir Kochhar, this series will see him converse with leading sports personalities like Sania Mirza, Abhinav Bindra, Sunil Chhetri, Robin Uthappa, and Cheteshwar Pujara. The conversations will be focused on their struggles related to their mental health and their journey to self-awareness while re-enforcing that mental issues can strike anyone and that it's ok to not be ok.

Anup Rau, MD & CEO, Future Generali India Insurance said, “We want to propel a movement to get all Indians to take their mental health seriously. With the pandemic increasing levels of anxiety and stress, people are turning to experts, and I am afraid, quacks too to seek advice. We have curated a series, inviting sports celebrities and encouraging them to share their highs and lows of their career. Our talk show - ‘Mind Matters’ brings to life a never-seen-before side of the sports personas - their struggles with mental health and how they overcame that. We hope that watching these sports stars speak about mental wellbeing will inspire the rest of us to open up, discuss their challenges proactively and seek timely help.”
