March 8th 2021: The quaint town of Sangli in southern Maharashtra is where international cricket icon, Smriti Mandhana calls home. On women’s day, season 4 of ‘Asian Paints Where The Heart Is’ takes you into Smriti’s home, a peaceful pavilion that draws a striking contrast against the bright lights of the stadium.
The core of the house is the shared living space that the family spends time in together: card games are a staple and there’s a projector to watch cricket matches on. Smriti has been paving the way for women, aspiring to play cricket professionally from a very young age through sheer grit and determination. She shares a personal anecdote about how the town didn’t have a proper cement wicket that was curial for training, and how with the support and encouragement from her parents she invested most of her earning as a 16-year-old, to build one for herself and others who wanted to practice their game.
There is a clear focus on Smriti and her career: a TV room that is now a home gym, a textured wall that has been cleared to create a simple studio for shoots and a trophy wall that takes up the entire length of a wall in the living room. It’s a thing of beauty to see the pride her family takes in her achievements and how they are united in her vision for her career.
Smriti Mandhana’s home is a true testament not just of her discipline and skill, but of the love and affection between her and her family. Catch an exclusive tour of Smriti’s home given by the ace cricketer herself, in the 2nd episode of Asian Paints Where The Heart Is – a most awaited, admired and original web series, as it returns with Season 4.
