Akshay Kumar supports Kabbadi

After martial arts, Khiladi Kumar feels the national sport should be given due importance

Akshay Kumar is one of the fittest actors in our country. Our poll (http://www.bollywoodlife.com/news-gossip/salman-khan-beats-hrithik-roshan-and-akshay-kumar-voted-as-the-fittest-bollywood-star/) also ranks him as one of the most physically active and fit stars in the country. So it comes as no surprise that the actor has been promoting all forms of sports over the year.

However, now Akshay feels that along with martial arts which he participates and even taught early in his career, its time to focus on the national games. In a message on his social networking site he said, “I’m a sports enthusiast, be it cricket, martial arts, hockey or kabbadi…that’s no secret. I’ve always promoted fitness and sports. Cricket is already world famous but I feel it’s now time to shift a little focus towards the sports which originated in our own country, Kabaddi! So guys it’s my request, tune into the World Kabaddi League starting in August 2014 and give it all your support.”

We wonder if Akshay will get down on the maidaan and show us some kabbadi moves!
