This chill between Netflix and Sunil Chhetri is all you need to go through to counter your Monday blues
New Delhi | Jagran Tending Desk: The jovially swift Twitter banter between Indian Footballer Sunil Chhetri and streaming service Netflix, has taken the micro blogging site with a storm, as surprisingly enough, a fan asked Chhetri for his Netflix password during the lockdown, and not any signed jersey or an autographed picture– the stuff he’s usually asked for.
Chhetri shared a screenshot of the post after the bizarre request from the Kolkata-based Football fan.
"Here's someone who has priorities straight and it's really making me want to consider the demand," Chhetri tweeted alongside the screenshot of the text.

Tennis star Sania Mirza and former Badminton World number two Saina Nehwal were quick to hilariously get out on Twitter with laughing emojis. Yet the limelight replies were those of Netflix-India’s, and of course Sunil Chhetri by default.
Netflix India was quick to spot the post on Chhetri's Twitter account and ended up coming with an exclusive demand of their own as a reaction.
"While we're on the topic, could we also get your autograph on a picture?" Netflix India wrote back to Chhetri on the Twitter.

Chhetri never backs down, neither on the field nor off it, he didn’t back down on Twitter either, and proposed a clear barter ahead.
"In the true spirit of a barter, how about you guys hand the kid a two-month subscription and I'll send a signed shirt and a picture your way? Do we have a deal?" Chhetri replied to Netflix India’s post.

Netflix agreed to Football superstar and decided to gift the fan a free subscription card along with a jersey of the Indian football captain. Chhetri also promised a Jersey for Netflix as well.
“How about we send him both the jersey and a subscription card? Let’s make his day. Slide tackling into your DMs so we can figure out how to do this,” California-based streaming giant responded back.

And that's the way the loop got closed with an heartwarming barter of exceptional kind, though despite that, Netflix-India couldn't get over the 'My captain' vibes of the moment.

Chhetri is part of the 28-member team chosen by FIFA for their awareness campaign to combat the Covid-19 pandemic. He will be releasing videos in Hindi to spread awareness about the same being the flag bearer of International Football in India.
