What is heartning being, the city has accepted them too. I saw people taking selfies with the kabaddi players in the mall too. The people are in the know of the sport and it is lovely,” the 40-year-old actor said. Pink Panthers won the inaugural season of the Pro-Kabbadi League but went on a downward spiral in the successive seasons and the team owner said it wasn’t due to the pressure of expectations. “I would say, we were unlucky. The players picked up a lot of injuries and towards the end of the league phase, we were playing with a squad that was just 10% fit. These things do happen in sport and we had the time to regroup and rethink our strategies for the new season,” he added.
