The Pro Kabaddi League was launched in India in 2014, influenced by the popularity of the kabaddi tournament at the 2006 Asian Games. The professional league elevated game to the level of professional spectator sport.
Hailing from India’s Pink City, Jaipur, the Jaipur Pink Panthers, a team owned by Abhishek Bachchan is the subject of Prime Video series Sons Of The Soil. The actor himself has been very vocal in supporting his team in media appearances and on social media.
Check out the official teaser for the sports docuseries from the Prime Video twitter account here:
