More Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan, who recently announced his support to the Pro-Kabaddi League, says that sport chose him. "I did not choose kabaddi; in fact, the sport chose me. It's a traditional sport and is yet to receive its due in a cricket-csrazy nation. Being a sports lover myself, I want to change the perception about the game in India. Despite kabaddi being an Indian game, it comes a long way down the pecking order of sports in our country. I want to promote it and would like to see the fan base of the game increasing tremendously with this tournament," he said.
