Adityan Kayalakal, Head of Marketing at Veera, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership, stating, “Veera, being a brand that has just launched in India with a key feature of ad-blocking, finds a perfect synergy with the sport of Kabaddi, known for its ‘block’ move. Our browser’s ability to block all third-party ads resonates with one of the major maneuvers in Kabaddi. Super excited to partner with YKS and we look forward to a great tournament.”
