Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan is definitely hands on when it comes to supporting his football and kabaddi teams. The actor reportedly ensures that his players are taken care of, a probable reason for the success of Jaipur Pink Panthers at the inaugural kabaddi league this year. Junior B was present at all the games then and continues to do so for his football team, the Chennaiyan FC, as well.
The Pro Kabaddi League tournament started in Mumbai on July 26 and a host of celebrities like Sachin Tendulkar, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Tina Ambani and Kabir Bedi, attended the launch of the eight-city franchise. Tendulkar pledged his support to kabaddi and said he was amazed to see the agility and speed of the players on the inaugural day of the Kabbadi League.
Abhishek Bachchan, who has invested in the Pro Kabaddi League, said that although he is an avid football fan, kabaddi was a sport that people in India have all played as children. He said this is the reason why he wanted to be associated with the sport as soon as he got the opportunity to help it grow.
