Soon after completing Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. Kangana Ranaut is all busy shooting for her next, Panga. The first schedule of Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari directorial which revolves around Kabaddi players was recently wrapped up in Bhopal. Now, the team has taken a break of around a month-and-a-half to give time to its lead actress to train in the sports. Starring Richa Chadha along with Kangana, the movie also talks about family values, relationships and challenging oneself, reported Mumbai Mirror.
Director Ashwiny will also undergo training in order to understand the sport better. National players will be training the team. Talking to Mirror, the director said, ''It was important for us to finish this schedule before we start shooting the kabaddi sequences. A month-and-a-half, I feel, is too short a time to learn a game like kabaddi, but we are going to give it our all. National-level players like Gauri Wadekar, Vishwas More and Tarak Raul will train the actors. Kangana has been training physically, now she will begin full-fledged prep''.
The film showcases international-level of kabaddi, hence, the director wants technicalities to be correct. There won't be any doubles, therefore, moves by the actors should look natural on screen, said Ashwiny. The team will be undergoing training for 2-3 hours depending on everyone's schedule. ''It’s a group sport, so the entire team will need to train together. Kangana has played kabaddi in the past and enjoys it. She is also vocal in her support for the sport,” said the director.
