Ashi Singh to be pitted against co-star Shagun Pandey; preps for wrestling onscreen for Meet

en Bollywood News Ashi Singh to be pitted against co-star Shagun Pandey; preps for wrestling onscreen for Meet

Ashi Singh opened up about how she has prepped up for the role of a wrestler to essay the Kushti scenes on Meet.

Zee TV's popular fiction show, Meet, traces the story of Meet Hooda (Ashi Singh), who questions societal norms of gender roles and proves that there’s no work or responsibility that a woman can’t take on. While Ashi Singh plays the role of Meet Hooda, whereas Shagun Pandey is seen as Manmeet post the one year leap. With the latest twists and turns being introduced, Meet and Manmeet will be seen wrestling with each other in upcoming episodes.

In the ongoing storyline of the show, Manmeet will be marrying Meet Hooda. And in the upcoming episodes, audiences will get to witness a dramatic ‘Dangal’ sequence between them. Now that Meet is trying to get the papers of her land signed by Manmeet, she has challenged him to a game of kushti with her in exchange for the land, to which Manmeet has agreed.  On screen, Meet is on her toes to practice for the kushti match and is all in to face any difficulties that will come her way. But that’s not it! To get the body language and details of the fight right, Ashi Singh is preparing for the same religiously in real life too, so that she can pull off the scene like a real wrestler.

Ashi Singh mentioned, “My character Meet has always broken stereotypes and I believe that there is nothing a man can do, that a woman cannot. The upcoming episode of the show is a step forward on the same track and I feel really lucky that I am playing Meet Hooda, who is so fearless. From the last one-and-a-half-years Meet has inspired me so much that sometimes I take personal decisions thinking what she would do. This is the very first time that the television industry will witness a woman performing kushti against a man and I can’t wait to hear the feedback from the viewers.  I have been preparing very hard for this, and to get the scenes done in the right way, I have watched countless women wrestling videos, along with doing extra workout. I hope my audience will love the new twists and turns in the show, especially with Meet Hooda in a new wrestler avatar.”

While Ashi Singh has been working hard to get the nuances right of a wrestler on-screen, it will be interesting for the viewers to witness who will win at the ‘Akhada’ after all.  Talking about the show, Meet airs every day at 6 pm on Zee TV.
