“I think such leagues help in promoting the sport. I am happy that the ratings of the league is great and the number of viewers are increasing which is really positive,” he said.

Apart from Diljit, southern actors Rana Daggubati and Puneeth Rajkumar are also the brand ambassadors for season four of the Star Sports Pro Kabaddi League.
