Malaysiavil Jallikattu #MYJallikattu

Astro is bringing a popular bull-taming sport called Jallikattu for the first time ever in Malaysia for the upcoming Astro’s Ponggu Tamil in January 2018. 
Jallikattu is an ancient sport which is about 2,500 to 10,000 years old. It is generally held during the second day of the Ponggal harvest festival in Tamil Nadu.
Our aim is to preserve the tradition of this ancient game which should be uplifted and instilled in our youngsters so that the legacy continues despite the test of time. As such, we are delighted to organize Jallikattu in Malaysia for the very first time outside India, as an exhibition match to entertain and educate the audiences on the significance of this event. 
We have selected 20 bulls from Malaysia, which are being trained by 15 expert trainers from India. However, we have also ensured that all the precautionary measures are taken to safeguard the bulls during the sessions, which includes obtaining approval from Department of Veterinary Services and so on.
