India’s newest franchise-based professional sports league Ultimate Table Tennis (UTT) is ready to roll on. And on board for its promotion is the Dangal Star, Aamir Khan.
In a newly launched promo-campaign on the UTT’s Twitter and Facebook page, sporting fans can catch Aamir Khan in dual of TT with his own counterpart. With a captivating film in the build-up to UTT league, the promo carries the same message- ‘See Champions, Be Champions’.
Aamir has shown his prowess as a wrestler in Dangal, a cricketer who wields his willow to score sixes in Lagaan and even inspired a generation of youngsters through his performance as an amateur cyclist in Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander.
But have you ever seen the perfectionist Bollywood megastar Aamir Khan use forehand smashes in an attacking display of Table Tennis?
Mr. Perfectionist in the promo is explaining what has he learned from all the sports film, he has worked for? He has a point of view that no good acting can make you appear a good sportsperson. Rather you should know how to play the game. And to become the best, you have to learn it from the best. Ending the promo, Aamir urges fans to watch UTT league, which will have the finest players from around the world, to become the best.
