Mumbai, July 17 (IANS) Actor Abhishek Bachchan’s Kabaddi team Jaipur Pink Panthers is gearing up for the second season of the Pro Kabaddi League and he says it received much-needed motivation to perform from his daughter Aaradhya.
“Aaradhya supports us with a hi-five,” he said at a press conference here.
Aaradhya was often seen at matches last season in the arms of mother Aishwarya Rai Bachchan during the last season and that might have surely motivated the team as the they went on to win the inaugural title.
About the prospects of his team this time, Abhishek said: “Along with hard work, luck also plays a decisive factor. This time the players are of a bigger stature, and even I’ll try to contribute my best for the team. And I’ll also ask my father to help in the kabaddi.”
The second season is slated to begin with an opening ceremony on Saturday.
“My father gives his 100 percent for everything that he does. Before the first match, he’ll be singing the national anthem and from then on, the national anthem will be played at all the matches,” he said.
Amitabh, who had also sung the national anthem for a special video during Republic Day, has seen his association with sports has gone up recently having done commentary at the India- Pakistan match at the Cricket World Cup.
