VISHAL MANE, SURENDER NADA, MOHIT CHHILLAR, three defenders of U Mumba team took a day off from Pro Kabaddi League and played a game of kabaddi with kids hosted by KidZania Mumbai, the Global Indoor Theme park, on thursday at R City Mall, Ghatkopar.
The event saw many children going crazy as they saw these players and soon there was a ruish to get an autograph or to shake hands with them. Before the match the players were greeted and welcomed by a dance performance by the Zupervisors.
The players in action with the kids:
After the match everybody jumped on the court and clicked pictures with the players.
As U Mumba is one of the semi-finalists, when asked if they would qualify for the finals, and whom they would want to play against, the three defenders echoed the same answer:
"Anybody, no matter who plays against us we would want to beat them."
The message that Vishal Mane had for the younger generation was:
"First concentrate on your education, it is very important and then whatever is your passion follow it, even if it is kabaddi, don't hesitate to make it your profession."
Surender Nada who was the quietest among them said,
"I let my game do the talking."
U Mumba will take on Patna Pirates in the semi-finals tomorrow.
