Abhishek Bachchan has bought the Jaipur franchisee of the Pro-Kabbadi League similar to IPL which is going to be held in the months of July and August. Junior Bachchan has tweeted about the same and asked for the best wishes.
Bachchan said in a media conference “It is a matter of huge pride. Over a year ago Charu pitched pro kabaddi to me. It overwhelmed me. It is a cheap sport but the amount of skill required is immense. Having been a sportsman and being a sports enthusiast, it’s very exciting to be able to be part of this endeavour”
