Abhishek Bachchan dreams big for basketball in India

The actor who is associated with several sports, be it his team in the recently concluded Celebrity Classico 2016, or his Jaipur Pink Panthers in the Pro Kabaddi League, is trying to do his best to bring sports to the forefront. And this time, it is basketball. Abhishek Bachchan , who is a great fan of basketball, says that India has no structured format for basketball as a sport, which is why it is not coming up in the country. He wishes to bring basketball to the forefront, and also wants to put India on the global map when it comes to basketball.He says that Sim Bhullar from Torontowas signed by Sacramento Kings and was the first player of Indian origin to have played in NBA. While 19-year-old Satnam Singh Bhamara from Punjab plays for the Dallas Mavericks now. Junior Bachchan mentions that these players are doing very well for themselves and is sure that they would do wonders for India’s basketball scene. What makes it more interesting is the fact that Indian kids now have local heroes to cheer for, when it comes to a sport like basketball.
