38-year-old Chhetri is third in the list for active footballers with most international goals with 84 strikes to his name, behind Cristiano Ronaldo (117) and Lionel Messi (90).
* “The first episode takes us back to where it all started...all leading up to his India debut at the age of 20. Close associates, loved ones, and footballing colleagues help tell the tale — apart from the man himself, the man affectionately dubbed, ‘Captain, Leader, Legend’,” the synopsis of the first episode says.
* The second episode is about Chhetri starting to perform wonders for the national team, and his big dream of playing professional football for a top-class overseas club.
* In the third episode, Chhetri reaches the zenith of his professional career and his personal life. Trophies pile up and records are shattered..
