Zahra also spoke about how the Pro Kabaddi League has inspired women's kabaddi players in Iran, "The Pro Kabaddi League is very famous in our country. The league has made kabaddi very thrilling and we always look forward to watching all seasons. The league has also inspired many women to take up kabaddi in Iran and across the world.
