Richa Chadha’s prior kabaddi experience comes in handy for Panga

Actress Richa Chadha, who has been training in kabaddi for Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s Panga (2019), says she used to play the sport in her school days and that is coming in handy now.

“It has been amazing to work with professional players,” Chadha said in a statement. “We are working with a senior player and a senior coach. They have been training us extensively in the sport. I have had some practice of kabaddi back in school which has come in handy. It was something I enjoyed back then too.”

Chadha finds the sport intensive and not easy, but the practice, she feels, is worth it because of the impact it will create on the film.

“Ashwiny is very thorough. That makes the process even more fun, makes us want to put in that extra effort to look and be as authentic as we can to real-life kabaddi players,” Chadha added.
