Bollywood star Akshay Kumar urges fans to support kabaddi

Mumbai (IANS): Actor Akshay Kumar, also a sports lover, is now promoting kabaddi by urging fans to watch the World Kabaddi League when it begins in August.

“I’m a sports enthusiast, be it cricket, martial arts, hockey or kabbadi…that’s no secret. I’ve always promoted fitness and sports. Cricket is already world famous but I feel it’s now time to shift a little focus towards the sports which originated in our own country, Kabaddi!
