Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar, star badminton player PV Sindhu and her coach Pullela Gopichand have joined hands with the Hyderabad based CallHealth Services by investing $6.2 Mn in it. As per documents sourced from the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, the cricket icon has reportedly invested $1.88 Mn (INR 12 Cr) while PV Sindhu and Gopichand have invested approximately $625K (INR 4 Cr) each.

Besides the sportspersons, a Hyderabad-based IT services company named ‘Tetra Soft’ has invested around $1.25 Mn (INR 8 Cr) whereas Bijman Projects Pvt. Ltd has put in $1.56 Mn (INR 10 Cr). However, this particular round is fairly less as compared to last year’s fund raising which bagged about Rs 57.52 crore. Last year’s round had witnessed Telugu film actors Chiranjeevi Konidela, Nagarjuna Akkineni and Allu Arjun making a healthy investment.
