Amitabh Bachchan’s AB Corp will be one of the bidders bidding for Kabaddi players at the auction for the 4th edition of Kabaddi Premier League next week.
“Amitabh Bachchan’s AB Corp will be one of the franchisees bidding for players. The auction would take place during four-day 61st senior national men and women’s kabaddi championship in Patna, starting Jan 21,” Kumar Vijay, joint secretary of the Amateur Kabaddi Federation of India and secretary of the Bihar State Kabaddi Association, said Sunday.
This is the first time Kabaddi players are being auctioned like Cricket players in our country. Vijay added that along with AB Corp, ONGC, Air India, Mahindra and Mahindra would bid for KPL players. “In one way, it is a positive development for kabaddi and its players, who have been left neglected till date,” Vijay said.
