Star Sports has announced the launch of the national campaign for season VI of VIVO PKL. The campaign speaks the language of Indianess, bravery and fitness, that is core to kabaddi. The truly Indian sport epitomises bravery, when a raider enters the court to challenge seven opposition players. It makes a strong statement that only the fittest can conquer and the campaign brings to the forefront these attributes that are intrinsic to the sport.
In India, kabaddi has been a great childhood sport, however, professionally it is no childâs play. Arising from this insight, the creative adaptation of the campaign âBachpan Ka Khel Hai, Bacchao Ka Nahinâ builds on the key insight that the homegrown sport is a part of our collective childhood, a local sport we played as kids in every nook and corner, however, to play at VIVO PKL you need to be the best.
The campaign film depicts the insight with impeccable cinematic display, portraying the daily regime followed by players and the tireless hours that go into training, to excel on the mat. Every player that approaches the mat trains differently, the film opens with Pardeep Narwal who is seen running and then moves into other players Rishank Deavdiga, Anup Kumar and Monu Goyat who are training their best to prove themselves this season. The players through the film depict the sheer dedication, skill, physical and mental grind that goes into playing the sport.
Commenting on the launch of the campaign for the sixth season of VIVO Pro Kabaddi, a Star Sports spokesperson, said, âVIVO Pro Kabaddi has taken a homegrown sport to new heights of fervour and popularity. The Season VI campaign, focuses on the skill, dedication and rigour required to play the sport. Kabaddi is tough and played by some of the bravest and fittest athletes today. The film takes you through their everyday journey as they prepare for the upcoming season.â
The category defining sporting league has transformed kabaddi in India, raking in record viewership figures and laying the groundwork for the phoenix like rise of Indiaâs home-grown sport across the globe.
