On Day 27 of Star Sports Pro Kabaddi, the third day of the Bengaluru leg, one of India's most promising young singers, Gagan Gaonkar recited the National Anthem in the Kanteerava Indoor Stadium before the Bengal Warriors and Patna Pirates match. 

Gagan Gaonkar was the winner of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Lil Champs (Season 5) in 2014 and has even acted in Kannada movies. His inspiration is Rahat Fateh Ali Khan which was evident in his wonderful rendition of the National Anthem that rang clearly and soulfully through out the stadium
