MUMBAI: The action king of Bollywood, Akshay Kumar, is set to take the entertainment quotient a notch higher with his dazzling performance on the inaugural day of the Wave World Kabaddi League (WWKL) at London.

 

Kumar will dance on popular title tracks of his recent movies as part of the inaugural program planned to kick start the matches of WWKL. A known sports enthusiast, Kumar has been closely associated with sports and is also the co-owner of Khalsa Warrior.

 

“I am quite excited about WWKL. My performance will be dedicated to all the Kabaddi fans who come together to cheer the teams. The League is a step to promote the Indian contemporary sport and bring it closer to the fans of the sport spread across the world,” Kumar said in a statement today. 

 

Top players from across the world will be participating in the League which will commence from the O2 Arena. With a capacity of over 20,000 seats, O2 will surely see some high performance trailblazing entertainment in the form of dance and sport. “The dedication being shown by Akshay to promote Wave World Kabaddi League is commendable. As a true supporter he is making himself available to us despite his busy schedule to promote Kabaddi,” said Wave World Kabaddi League commissioner Pargat Singh.

 

WWKL is the first international Kabaddi league coming out of India and is scheduled to roll out from August in a high profile event at London.

 

It is the first Indian sports league with an international footprint and a four month long calendar. Played in circle style, WWKL will see eight teams fight for the win as the League travels across three continents.

 

Additionally, Khalsa Warriors co-owner Gurdeep Singh said, “It gives me immense pleasure to have an A-list actor like Akshay to be a co-team owner. His movies are eagerly watched internationally and am sure he can make Kabaddi look cool as a sport to play and follow. He has some very innovative winning strategies up his sleeve that he continues to share with me and my players. We will play to win and I am sure the fans will enjoy it thoroughly.”
