Times have changed with the lockdown in place and along with it priorities as well. While pleading for selfies or autographs does not seem alien in this age, asking for Netflix credentials sure does. India’s football star Sunil Chhetri was the victim after a fan requested the streaming platform’s user ID and password.
Chhetri proceeded to share the fan’s request after a capturing a screenshot of the message along with the caption which read:

Here’s someone who has priorities straight and it’s really making me want to consider the demand.”

Apart from requesting the credentials, the fan added reassuringly that Chhetri can change the password once the lockdown gets over.
One of the most prolific goalscorers at the International circuit, Chhetri is assisting in the country’s uphill battle against the pandemic with a contribution to the PM CARES fund along with the rest of the members of the Indian football team. He stated:
“We’ve always received more than we can give. Which is why in this time of need, all of us national team players have come together and put on the table a sum that has been sent to the PM-Cares Fund to help India’s fight with the pandemic,” said Chhetri in a series of tweets.
“It’s been heartening to see everyone — cutting across caps, goals, age and experience — give, and give with a smile. When word got out, even some who have long stopped pulling on an India shirt, turned up and asked to be counted. That’s what a team is all about. The ONLY reason we’re talking about this here is so that it can gently prod those who have been fortunate enough to get, to give back. We’re in this together.”
