The Great Khali mania grips India
The former WWE Champion, along with 14 other international wrestlers that include former WWE stars, are set to be in action in India.
Wrestling fans can now bear witness to the return of their favourite wrestler The Great Khali in action for the first time ever on Indian soil. Tickets for The Great Khali Return Series have gone on sale with ticketing partner bookmyshow.com. Marking the first of its kind deal for any News Channel in the country, ETV today bagged the television broadcast for the same.
As per the terms of the deal, ETV will not just broadcast the fights live but will also extend promotional support for the series through its entire network. A High Voltage ‘The Great Khali Returns Series’ Anthem and Music Video unveiled. It will feature local Uttarakhand lad and winner of ‘The Voice’ as lead vocalist.
While the Anthem ‘Zor Laga’ features a very large sound and is focused on highlighting the hardworking and never say die attitude of Pahadis in general, the music video features this spirit and way of life personified through snapshots of The Great Khali himself and The Uttarakhand Chief Minister Shri Harish Rawat. The lyrics bring out the true meaning of being a winner, which is having the power to hold on despite the most adverse circumstances.
This anthem is a means to bring out the true meaning of being a pahadi, where their single-minded focus and supreme dedication is the key to chart their own success story. The artist is telling the viewers to be stubbornly persistent cause only then can they succeed. This high definition video is packaged well with soaring drama and action.
