DSport is coming up with India’s first ever indigenously created wrestling entertainment show titled, ‘Dangal Ke Soorma’. The show is starting on 24th August at 9 pm and will be a weekly 12 episode series. 21 elite Indian wrestlers will take on various international wrestling stars.
Realising the untapped potential of the Indian Pro-Wrestling market, DSport sees the whitespace being a platform where Indian wrestlers can showcase their skill. While a few Indian wrestlers like Khali, Jinder Mahal, and Kavita Devi have been featured on international platforms.
The sports entertainment industry has never been promoted in the country and has always been dominated by International Pro-Wrestlers courtesy of companies like WWE and TNA.
DSport airs a lot of wrestling and combat sports properties in India and broadcast many International Combat & Sports entertainment shows like New Japan Pro Wrestling (World’s second-largest Pro-Wrestling), Ring of Honor (third largest wrestling promotion in the US), Lucha Underground Season 2 and World of Sport Wrestling from the UK.
Now the aim is to take things to the next level through ‘Dangal Ke Soorma’ & scale up the event next year to 24 episodes. The first season is a short season of 12 episodes and next season at least double the episodes. It will be a weekly format. Next season the aim is to have the episode frequency increase. The show will be in English and Hindi.
