Richa Chadha’s character in Panga required a Bihari influence and dialect. She used her roots from her maternal side and perfected her part. Talking about her Bihari connect, the actress said, “Very few people know of my origins and where I come from. My maternal side of the family are Biharis and I have a huge extended family living in that belt. I have always been closely knitted to both my paternal and maternal cultures. Having grown up in a house where I was exposed to a variety of languages, customs and cultures, I’m fortunate I get to use these experiences as an actor. It really is a blessing.”

She went on to add, “My part in Panga is very interesting and happens to be from that region and I was always familiar with the accent, words, language and an understating of a local dialect. I used this to the best of my capacity to bring authenticity to the character,” she concluded.

Also featuring Jassie Gill, Neena Gupta and Pankaj Tripathi in important roles, Panga is scheduled for its theatrical release on 24th January, 2020.
