Citing the phenomenal popularity of cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, actor Suniel Shetty, who will host the wrestling show, EPW-Saviours, says it is important to create an icon to popularise any kind of sport.
“I have seen 1,00,000 people come to watch wrestling. Cricket doesn’t pull that kind of crowd if Sachin is not playing. We can make sure (wrestlers like) Zak can also become such iconic figures. We already have Khali (The Great Khali), who is doing brilliantly,” said the 50-year-old actor.
