Mumbai  — Superstars Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan were seen on the same platform in Mumbai to support the Indian sport kabaddi.

The Pro Kabaddi League tournament started Saturday and the duo, along with other celebrities like Farah Khan, Sachin Tendulkar, Tina Ambani and Kabir Bedi, attended the launch of the eight-city franchise.

Abhishek Bachchan owns Jaipur Pink Panthers, a franchise of the Pro Kabaddi League.

“Thank u @juniorbachchan 4 inviting us to the Pro Kabaddi opening!! What a fun we had!!” Farah tweeted.

“Grateful to all the stars and friends that came out in support – Shah Rukh and Sachin and Aamir, and so many others … and a blast we had, cheering this very Indian sport … an occasion a first for India and the game … great fun …

“I do hope that we continue to play it the way it has been designed, with all the prominent corporates coming in and many celebrities joining the gang … !!” Big B posted on his official blog srbachchan.tumblr.com.

His son’s team lost the match, but he was happy with the turnout.

“Pro Kabaddi today (Saturday) started … Jaipur Pink Panthers v U Mumba … we LOST !! No sweat ! great atmosphere, and great turn out … watch,” Amitabh tweeted.
