Kangana Ranaut, who plays a former National-level Kabaddi player poised for a comeback after giving birth in Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s sports drama Panga, underwent rigorous training by Gauri Wadekar, who has represented India twice on international platforms.
As per reports, Kangana never missed a session and was punctual throughout. The team shot in Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai in different weathers, but Kangana’s dedication never wavered.
As we all know, Kabaddi requires Swift legwork, so her workout routine included squats and lunges. Kangana trained on attack strategies, defense, how to go for the bonus and which leg to put the weight on in each position.
Given that Kangana portrays a Kabaddi player at two different stages of life, pre and post pregnancy, the training at to be designed accordingly.
As part of the prep, the actress also made changes to her diet. Kangana says and we quote –
‘I had to gain a lot of weight in my legs to look authentic as a Raider (player who attacks from the opposing team), but I had to change it for the part where I am shown as a retired player,” she adds.
Truly a lot of efforts poured in from Knagana’s end. We wish her all the best for Panga. For more such updates, stay tuned to IWMBuzz.com
