"It is our earnest desire to lift the arm wrestling leagues from the ground level and get it the same respect that other sports receive in India," the actor shared.
From cricket to kabaddi and basketball to badminton, sports has caught frenzy among several Indian actors. In 2021, actor Parvin Dabas and his wife Preeti Jhangiani showed love for arm wrestling. Together they started Pro Panja League. Since then, Parvin has been determined to support and elevate arm wrestling as a sport across India.
The Khosla Ka Ghosla actor's agenda was recognised recently at the Haryana State Arm Wrestling Championships, where he was honoured as the chief guest.
Talking about his mission, Parvin says, “The Pro Panja League has collaborated with the Indian Arm Wrestling Federation who have been conducting amateur arm wrestling competitions for years now. It is our earnest desire to lift the arm wrestling leagues from the ground level and get it the same respect that other sports receive in India."
The maiden event of Pro Panja League took place in 2021 at the Thyagaraj Stadium in New Delhi. Since then, the couple is working at the grass-root level to promote and support arm wrestling.
The Pro Panja League will play in Gwalior on April 8 and 9. Earlier this year in March, the league supported the Delhi Arm Wrestling Championship 2021-2022, where Preeti was the chief guest.
