Video: Pro Kabaddi League Season 4 promo video and song, #AsliPanga
This is the first time the tournament is happening twice in the same calendar year.
#AsliPanga Toh Sirf Ek - Pro Kabaddi!
#AsliPanga - Don't Watch Fake, #AsliPanga Dekh
Star Sports have released two back-to-back trailers for the upcoming season of the Pro Kabaddi League. The tournament, scheduled to start on the 25th of this month, happens to be the 4th edition of the whoppingly successful venture and it is also the first time that the tournament is happening twice in a calendar year.
The first clip takes a dig at the ongoing trend of news channels deceiving the viewers with artificial debate sessions and exaggerated headlines, subsequently introducing scenes from the Pro Kabaddi League to suggest a refreshing switch to the latter. The second promo does one better by spoofing the excruciatingly perennial Saas-Bahu soaps which have stretched the limits of melodrama to unprecedented extents in the country.
With the befitting hashtag of #AsliPanga, the makers have delivered the exact message across to depict what this competition stands for. The Indian audience certainly loves a healthy mix of action and drama – precisely what this exhilarating native sport of the land offers, that too in plenty.
Live telecast of the Pro Kabaddi League Season 4 will be done on Star Sports 2, Star Sports 3, Star Gold and the Hotstar App from 25th June 2016.
The tournament will flag off at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex, Pune where the first seven matches will be held post which the whole contingent will move to Jaipur to battle it out at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium in the first week of July.
Gachibowli Indoor Stadium, Hyderabad will play hosts to the third set of matches. Matches 22 to 28 will then take place in Patliputra Sports Complex in Patna, the capital of Bihar, from where the action will shift to Sree Kanteerava Stadium, Bengaluru and Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Indoor Stadium, Kolkata for seven matches each before the last two sets are conducted in DOME@NSCL SVP Stadium, Mumbai and Thyagaraj Sports Complex, Delhi to close off the league stages.
For the remaining matches of the season to be played in the knockout format, the qualifying teams will return to Gachibowli Indoor Stadium, Hyderabad for the final leg of Pro Kabaddi League Season 4, 2016.
The eight teams locking horns this season are – Bengal Warriors, Bengaluru Bulls, Dabang Delhi, Jaipur Pink Panthers, Patna Pirates, Puneri Paltan, Telugu Titans and U Mumba. Among them, the franchises from Jaipur, Mumbai and Patna are the ones chasing the title for the second time whereas all five other teams will look to capture their maiden championship this time around.
