Superstar Amitabh Bachchan has lent his voice for the theme song to season 2 of the Pro Kabaddi League that starts on 18 July. He has used his singing talent to promote the game of Kabaddi. The song titled 'Le Punga' is rather catchy.

Pro Kabaddi League is a professional kabaddi league modelled on the format of cricket's Indian Premier League. The first season started in 2014 and Abhishek Bachchan's Jaipur Pink Panthers were the winners that year

A total of 8 teams will take part this season. Star Sports has spent a lot of money on marketing the game around India and season 1 was well received. It was the second most viewed sporting tournament in the country after the cash-rich Indian Premier League. The viewership surpassed the FIFA World Cup and Wimbledon's Men's final last year.
