Ahead of the trailer launch, director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari opened up about working with three-time National Film Award winning actress Kangana Ranaut. “Kangana and I have become friends over the two-year journey of the film. I have realised that when she loves someone, she will take care of them all her life,” said the filmmaker.

Tiwari also spoke about how the two supported each other during the course of the making of the film. “There were times when she was really upset, in tears. As a friend, I could only support her. If everyone keeps commenting, she will be affected. It’s only human,” she added.

Talking about the preparation that Ranaut had to do for her role in the film, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari revealed, “Kangana had to put on some weight, but her body type is such that it doesn’t look extra on her. She immediately lost the kilos, but has put them back for her next. I don’t know how she does it over and over; I have difficulty losing even once.”

Also starring Jassie Gill, Richa Chaddha, Neena Gupta and Pankaj Tripathi in important roles, Panga is slated to arrive in cinemas on January 24, 2020. The film will clash with Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor’s Street Dancer 3D which also releases on the same date.
