Amazon Prime Video is all geared up to get you going ‘Kabaddi Kabaddi’ with its upcoming sports docu series ‘Sons of The Soil : Jaipur Pink Panthers’. A documentary that is unscripted, raw, unfiltered glimpse into the lives of the players, coaches and management of the franchise.

In a recent press conference, owner of the team, Abhishek Bachchan said, "Jaipur Pink Panthers has a very personal touch with me. Whatever work I do in life, I feel it should have a personal connect. When I was little, my father used to call me out saying 'Tiger' then after a few years I thought even I should call him something as an answer. One day when he came back home from shooting, he asked me 'How are you tiger? I replied,' I am fine Panther. How are you?' and I was 4-5 years old then. Since then it became like a fun thing, he used to call me Tiger, I used to call him Panther. If there was an animal that we wanted to choose, I was sure that it was Panther because that is how I used to call my father. Pink is my daughter, Aaradhya's favorite colour. So I thought that Pink and Panther would be nice. My wife Aishwarya has worked in the film Pink Panther 2 with Steve Martin, so that's a connect to Aishwarya. Jaipur was the city, Aishwarya and I came together in, so that's why Jaipur. If you see, our Pink Panther has blue-green eyes which are the same as my wife's. So there is a personal connect to everything about Jaipur Pink Panthers."

The series is produced by BBC Studios India and directed by two-time BAFTA Scotland Winner Alex Gale, following Jaipur Pink Panthers through their journey in Season 7 of Pro Kabaddi League.

The ‘Sons Of the Soil: Jaipur Pink Panthers’ is all set to release on December 4. The Amazon Original Series will launch in over 200 countries and territories exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.
