The inaugural champions of the Pro Kabaddi League, Jaipur Pink Panthers are set to launch their much-anticipated web series on December 4, named 'Sons Of The Soil'. The trailer got released recently and it depicted the journey of the Jaipur Pink Panthers in the PKL. The web series will be available on the Amazon Prime Video app.
The teaser starts with the squad's training sessions and workouts. It shows how the team had put in efforts to win their inaugural title back in 2014.
I really don't like losing: Jaipur Pink Panthers owner Abhishek Bachchan
The owner of the franchise, Abhishek Bachchan was shown saying in the 57-second teaser that he doesn't like losing.
"I like to celebrate a victory, and I really don't like losing" said Bachchan.
The Bollywood star took to Instagram a day before the release, where he posted the team's winning moment in the inaugural season of the league. In the caption, he expressed his pride at winning in the first edition itself and mentioned how he is looking forward to the launch of the series.
"Six years ago, we started this journey on a winning note. The 1st ever champions of the Pro Kabaddi League! We roared like panthers do! I am confident that my #SonsOfTheSoil will come stronger," he wrote.
In the recently-concluded seventh season of the league, Jaipur Pink Panthers had a promising start with seven wins in the first nine games. But a couple of injuries and an out-of-form raiding attack cost the side heavily as Jaipur managed to win only two out of their next 13 games. That resulted in them finishing at the seventh position in the points table.
After winning the inaugural title, the Jaipur Pink Panthers have only managed to take the runners-up spot in Season 4. Despite having a host of stars in its squad, the Jaipur-based franchise is still seeking its second Pro Kabaddi title.Published 20 Nov 2020, 21:54 IST
