Puneri Paltan: Lifestyle Shoot for Leading #ProKabaddi Team

Leading #ProKabaddi team Puneri Paltan in a whole new avatar for our camera

Recently, we had an opportunity to orchestrate a lifestyle shoot for the leading Pro Kabaddi team, Puneri Paltan. It was a fantastic experience – to be able to see these tough, aggressive and immensely talented players in a different light. To see them as the young, enthusiastic, playful boys that they are with each other – the friendly banter and camaraderie was a joy to be around and shoot.

The shoot was actually scheduled just before most of them travelled to selection camps for the 6th Kabaddi World Cup 2016 – which took place in October this year. Not only did 3/5 players that we shot make it to the final India team, they lifted the World Cup! Manjeet Chillar & Ajay Thakur were amongst the top rated tacklers and raiders, respectively, for the entire tournament.

Here are a few of our favourites from the shoot…

What a day! We had such a blast with the boys and were doubly excited to see them perform in the World Cup! Now, we can’t wait for the next season of #ProKabaddi to see them in action.

We hope you guys love the photos as much as we do. Leave us a comment and tell us what you think.
