Rana Daggubati, South Superstar and Face of the WWE campaign:
“I have been following WWE since childhood and I am a big fan. We only see the success of our favourite superstars but rarely know the struggles and hurdles they have overcome to be where they are today. I hope these films show our viewers another side of these WWE Superstars and inspire them to never give up in the face of adversity.”
Neville Bastawalla, SVP & Head – Marketing & On Air Promotions, Sports Channels, Sony Pictures Networks India:
The epic journeys of these WWE Superstars in the ring and beyond are too big not to be shared with our viewers. And therefore, we embarked on a mission to bring alive inspiring stories of 10 WWE Superstars: And who best to narrate them, than our very own Mahabali, Rana Daggubati, who happens to be a big WWE fan. 10 WWE Superstars. 10 Short Films. And that led to a beautiful series of films called ‘WWE Superstars with Rana Daggubati.’ I am sure that viewers will get an inside look into their perseverance that will inspire to bring out the hero in them.”
