Apart from cricket, none of the other sports in India get the much-deserved attention and adulation. Kabaddi is a sport that originated in our very own country and so, with the intention to make it famous, Pro Kabaddi league was established. Some of India's wealthy businessmen and actors brought able kabaddi players from the domestic and national circuit, formed a team, and took part in the tournament. Pro Kabaddi League is partly inspired from the very successful cricket tournament, 'Indian Premier League'. The season one of this league went on to become a huge success and so the makers came up with season two.
