Taking her role as a strong woman in another film, Kangana Ranaut is all set to explore a different genre with Panga. While Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi featured her as a fierce warrior queen, this Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari directorial will be about sports.

Interestingly, Kangana’s latest release Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi was also a Republic weekend release as the film hit the big screens on January 25. The film was not only a success but it went on to find a place in the 100 crore club too. On the other hand, Panga which is set against the contemporary backdrop will see Kangana in a never-seen-before avatar. The actress has also undergone extensive prep for her role as a kabaddi player.
The actress also has another release in pipeline – Mental Hai Kya, which is produced by Ekta Kapoor. The film will see her reunite with her Queen actor Rajkummar Rao.
