RuPay Prime Volleyball League powered by A23, which started with an aim to introduce the Indian audience to the real version of the sport, has replicated the same sentiment in their new campaign. Launched in association with the Sony Sports Network, ‘Yeh Hai Asli Volleyball’ film focuses on how PVL provides fans with the real volleyball action. The film breaks people’s preconceived notions about the sport and how the street version of the game is not real Volleyball.
