Manjeet Chhillar is undoubtedly one of the best Kabaddi players to have ever played the game. Having won almost everything with his national side, the PKL trophy continued to play hide and seek with him. He came agonizingly close to lift the title in second season with Bengaluru Bulls, but U Mumba won that evening.
The 34-year-old continued to perform for whichever side he played, but he failed to find glory whether he played for Bengaluru Bulls or Puneri Paltan or Jaipur Pink Panthers or Tamil Thalaivas. Ahead of 2021-22 season, Manjeet Chhillar was bought by Dabang Delhi for INR 20 lakhs and who would have thought that this was the start of the most memorable journey for him in PKL.
In the twilight of his career, the experienced all-rounder was trusted to play a crucial role in Delhi’s defense. After a tough start to the season, Manjeet got his old mojo back and came up with some match-winning performances to guide his side to the final.
On the D-Day, he once again had a solid outing as he came up with 2 crucial tackles as Delhi beat Patna Pirates by 37-36 with Manjeet’s dream finally becoming a reality.
After the match, the experienced Kabaddi player was indeed delighted and on the insistence of presenters Mantra and Vrajesh Hirjee, Manjeet agreed to do hilarious ‘Naagin Dance’ moves inspired by actor Hirjee’s famous scene from movie Golmaal.

It was indeed a hilarious sight for fans to see Manjeet, who is usually very serious, producing a fun moment on a day he accomplished his long-awaited goal of winning Pro Kabaddi League.
