Richa Chadha did THIS to prep for her Kabaddi player’s role in ‘Panga’
Richa Chadha will soon start shooting the second leg of of Ashwini Iyer Tiwari’s film ‘Panga’. The film also stars Kangana Ranaut. Both the leading ladies of the film will be seen donning the character of Kabaddi players and they need to hone their Kabaddi skills. To perfect her role, Richa started researching on the game as soon as the second leg of the shooting was announced.
To get into the skin of character, Richa started meeting real Kabaddi players to get tips from their past experiences. Richa was seen traveling to places like Chandigarh, Ranchi and Patna for personal and professional work.
Interestingly, Richa came across the fact that every state team and their players have their own style and quirks while playing the game. Richa is trying to adapt these skills for her reel life in ‘Panga’. Rather than researching on internet about the game, she met some really good players from these regions.
Speaking about it, Richa said, “I have been training in Mumbai with a few players and coaches. However I was traveling to a lot of towns like Raipur, Ranchi and meeting the local players, which was extremely helpful. These guys have an amazing insight and experience to know the sport which helped a lot for my prep. I was traveling to these places for personal work and I happened to find ways to meet women Kabbadi players in these cities, spend time with them and also speak to them to know more about the sport.”
Richa has shown her versatility as an actor in films like ‘Masaan’, ‘Gangs Of Wasseypur’, ‘Fukrey‘ and ‘Love Sonia’ amongst many others. Very soon, audiences will get to see her in an avatar never seen before in the ‘Shakeela’ biopic. The film is set to release this summer which is directed by Indrajit Lankesh.
