Delivering a chance punishment to Budhia Singh, makes Biranchi Das discover the former’s ‘god-gifted’ talent to run relentlessly without an ounce of tiredness. There after he starts coaching Budhia, with a sole aim of creating a world record. And when the news of Budhia’s athletic talents reaches the media, he, not only becomes an overnight sensation, but also the toast of the entire Bhubaneswar state.
