Mumbai, Sep 17 (PTI) Tennis champion Leander Paes on Friday said the upcoming non-fiction series "Break Point" will give fans an insight into his fractured but successful professional pairing with sports star Mahesh Bhupathi.

Once the poster boys for the sport in the country, being nicknamed the "Indian Express", they played together from 1994 to 2006 and reunited for their second stint from 2008 to 2011. The duo had a public fall out but have now reunited to share their story with "Break Point".

Helmed by filmmaker couple Nitesh Tiwari and Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, the ZEE5 series traces the on and off-court partnership between the two Indian tennis icons, who were the first doubles team from the country to win at the Wimbledon in 1999.
