The Pro Kabaddi League that started back in 2014 to bring a game closest to the soil of India back, in essence, witnessed its first champions – the Jaipur Pink Panthers. The team is owned by Abhishek Bachchan, a passionate follower of sports and more closely now with his team. Looks like the men of Jaipur Pink Panthers will be seen as Sons of The Soil in Amazon Prime Video's upcoming series. Amazon Prime Video catering to audiences in more than 200 countries and territories is a great way to reach larger audiences with the intriguing concept series.
Abhishek's post on his social media too hints to the speculation. He shared, "6 years ago we started this exciting journey on a winning note. The 1st ever champions of the @prokabaddi league! We roared like panthers do! I am confident that my #SonsOfTheSoil will come back stronger @primevideoin @jaipur_pinkpanthers" A source shared that the show was in the making last year and will be released by end of 2020. A reality show featuring Abhishek Bachchan and team: Sandeep Dhull, Amit Hooda, Deepak Hooda, Saurabh Mishra, Deepak Narwal, Nitin Rawal, Srinivas Reddy, Nilesh Salunke, Bunty Walia, and others.
For the unversed, Sons of the Soil is a gripping documentary series that goes behind the scenes to showcase one of India’s most celebrated Pro Kabaddi league team called the Jaipur Pink Panthers’ struggles, pain and the ultimate journey towards success.
It will be interesting to get an insight into the team and know how the boys prepare and train for matches and tournaments ahead of the league and during it too. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting news.
