Jr. Bachchan also admitted at the event that it is because of his father, megastar Amitabh Bachchan, that he has knowledge about Kabaddi. "I came to know about Kabaddi when I first saw dad play it in his movie GANGA KI SAUGANDH and I thank him for it," explains Abhishek.

Quiz him whether he himself has played the sport and he reveals, "When I was small, I used to play it for my school. Also I used to play it with my cousins."
