Last time when Kangana Ranaut played an athlete (National Level Hockey Player in Tanu Weds Manu Returns, 2015), she broke Box Office records and won the audiences and awards. So naturally, when the news about her donning the sports cap once again for the silver screen came in, it piqued the interest of all. This time around Kangana is set to play a Kabaddi player In Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s directorial Panga and is gearing up not just to master the tricks of kabaddi but also to undergo complete physical transformation to justify her character.
Kangana Ranaut will be putting on 6-7 kilos for her role in Panga and then as the film progresses she will shed the weight as return to her normal petite self. According to film source, “Kangana will start training in kabaddi as soon as she is back from her vacation in New York. Though she is familiar with the sport, she requires training to showcase it like a professional. But, before she starts doing so, she will gain weight. She is on a high-calorie protein diet, and, over the next month, intends to pack on six kilos.”
Putting on more mass will be a task for Kangana as she is genetically small framed, the source further added “Kangana may need to incorporate weight training exercises instead.” So, it’s going to be a gala time for Kangana to turn a foodie and enjoy a generous serving of nut shakes, fruits and tofu on her dietary chart.
Directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, Panga is a story that reaffirms that a family who laughs, cries, dreams together and if they are by your side, nothing seems to be impossible to a willing heart. Kangana Ranaut and Jassie Gill together see this belief taking shape in Panga. A story about a newage family who challenge stereotypes and dare to dream.
