Aparshakti Khurana was seen on screen in a sports-based movie like Dangal, based on professional wrestling, but in real life, he has been roped in for Ultimate Kho Kho League 2022, which will be telecasted by a major television network.

Although Kho Kho is a homegrown indigenous sport, not many stars seem to be associated with the game. The actor is more than happy to lend his support to this game to shine more light on it and wants to continue doing his bit to bring to the forefront the game and the many players behind it.

Aparshakti, whose latest movie Dhoka Round D Corner’s teaser, starring R. Madhavan, Darshan Kumar and Khushali Kumar, was recently released, and who has given remarkable performances in several films like Stree, says, “Sports have been a very integral part of my life, right from childhood. Sports do not just help in physical health, but also help develop one’s mental strategy. I have been a part of the Haryana U-19 Cricket Team and I still play football with the All Stars team. Also, my first film was based on wrestling. Now it is an honor to host Ultimate Kho Kho Leagues’ opening season.”

He goes on, “The league has so many talented players, and as the championship goes on, I am sure people are going to be hooked till the finals. It is important that we support homegrown sports, take them to new heights and build a great audience base for them. We must take pride in our culture and homegrown sports such as these are part of the community at large.”

The championship, which has six teams, is being hosted in Pune. The names of the teams are Chennai Quick Guns, Gujarat Giants, Mumbai Khiladis, Odisha Juggernauts, Rajasthan Warriors and Telugu Yoddhas. The league will go on till September 4.
