With all sporting events cancelled around the world due to the ongoing pandemic, Sunil Chhetri decided to help out a fan when he requested the Indian football team captain for his Netflix ID and password. The fan even suggested to the football star that he could change the password after the lockdown.
Taking to Twitter, the 35-year-old player shared a screenshot of a message he received from a fan along with a caption that read, “Jerseys. Autograph on picture X. Reply to the post X. Video wishing the neighbour’s son’s pet dog X. Here’s someone who has priorities straight and it’s really making me want to consider the demand.”

With a following of over one million, it did not take long for Chhetri’s post to go viral, prompting reactions from many, including Netflix India.
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? https://t.co/Ub0WaMcutg

The exchange between the two soon resulted in the fan not only getting a signed Jersey from Chhetri but also a free Netflix subscription.
“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,” read the final tweet from Netflix to Chhetri.
