It is indeed a busy year for Bollywood’s queen Kangana Ranaut. The actress who is currently shooting for ‘Mental Hai Kya’ in London will soon be seen essaying the role of a kabaddi player in director Ashwini Iyer Tiwari’s upcoming sports drama.
Reportedly, after finishing MHK, the B-town girl will start her prep for Ashwini’s next in Mumbai.
Reveals a close source, “Kangana’s ‘Mental Hai Kya’ wraps up on July 11. She will immediately fly back to Mumbai and complete some patch work of Manikarnika. She has to devote two days for a brand shoot. But, for most part of August, she and Ashwini will be busy doing workshop for the kabaddi film.”
Moreover, Ashwini Iyer is scouting for a coach who will train Ranaut in the sport.
“Ashwini is screening national level kabaddi champions’ profiles to find the one who can handhold Kangana through the sport. While Kangana has already started practicing yoga to be able to master holding breath- a prerequisite of the game – the prep will see her learning different kinds of holds and kicks. Learning the crocodile hold and wrist catch will be crucial. She will also need to undergo a change in terms of her physique”, says another source close to the film’s production unit.
Kangana was last seen in Hansal Mehta’s ‘Simran’ in 2017.
