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," he tweeted on Friday.
The league will be played across four continents from August till December.

Akshay is also a martial artist and always enthusiastic about sports. He has also hosted two seasons of Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi
