Looking at the immense potential of the Power Sportz programs, the ride-sharing agglomerate in the Middle-East, Uber-Careem has signed with the channel for content sharing.

Talking Turkey with Kanthi, the flagship show of Power Sportz
The numerous offerings from the channel are no less than pageantry, and standing out is the weekly sports debate show “Talking Turkey with Kanthi”. Hosted by Kanthi D Suresh, the founder, and editor-in-chief of Power Sportz, the show drills down to any issue that is inimical to Indian sports. Hosting an elite panel of guests, “Talking Turkey with Kanthi” has so far highlighted several burning issues of Indian sports.
Talking Turkey with Kanthi rides on Kanthi’s ability to beat anyone to the draw, which is a treat on investigative journalism. Several of the episodes have gone on to become trending news on social media, mainly Twitter and Facebook.
According to a recent #trending on Twitter, Talking Turkey with Kanthi is all set to receive a Presidential award in Dubai for being a runaway success. Many people have commented on the trending Hashtag saying that Kanthi D Suresh would be feted in a ceremony in Dubai in Mid-September.
However, this is not the first stance where Kanthi is going to be felicitated. A Cabinet Minister of Haryana government has already awarded her a few days back for achieving so much as a woman entrepreneur.
For their annual meet on entrepreneurship, the IIT Kanpur also invited Kanthi D Suresh to talk about her journey in front of a young crowd who would take the reins of the country in the future. It was a platform where many Indian greats had delivered speeches in the past.
Now, coming to the award in Dubai, it is not clear who would be that President to present the award to Kanthi. For that, we will have to wait for a few more days until the award ceremony takes place and the media covers it.
