Hockey has been very close to my heart right from my childhood days and I feel this can be one way of promoting our national sport in my home state Punjab and other parts of the country. I’ll be following my favourite team Jaypee Punjab Warriors in the upcoming HIL and I wish that they lift the cup this time.
Mr Askari Zaidi, CEO, Jaypee Punjab Warriors, said:
It’s a great gesture by Yo Yo Honey Singh to endorse Jaypee Punjab Warriors, our team in the Hero Hockey India League. His popularity amongst masses especially youth needs no mention and we are privileged to have our players featuring in his forthcoming video.
