Kangana Ranut also decided to postpone her birthday plan and complete the shoot of Mental Hai Kya because she also has to start shooting for Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s Panga next. She has already begun the preparations of the same and it was said that she will be learning kabaddi for the movie in her hometown Manali. She has been quoted as saying, "I start my Kabaddi practise in Manali. They are sending a trainer for that there."

"I have been practising yoga since I was around 16-17. The program I am about to attend is an advanced one. I had been meaning to do this for a while now. This year, it happened to fall close to my birthday. Ten days of silence is a big commitment, but I wanted to be a birthday present for myself”, Kangana Ranaut was quoted as saying to the daily.
