Abhishek Bachchan: Indian sportswomen not given their due credit

The actor, who is the owner of Pro Kabaddi’s Jaipur franchise, says he wants to promote women players in India

Abhishek Bachchan, who is busy promoting the ancient sport of kabaddi, feels that sportswomen in India are not given their due credit.

“This is a small step and I am sure our agenda is also to promote women players in India,” Bachchan told reporters during the press conference of Pro Kabaddi.

The actor is the owner of Pro Kabaddi’s Jaipur franchise.

Asked if the association with stars with different leagues adds value to that sport, Bachchan said: “It’s just a coincidence that celebrities are team holders as well but, I don’t think it adds any value to the sports. We are associated with it because we are passionate about that sport”.
