Director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari's sports film 'Panga', which is already on floors, is slated to start it's next schedule in February. Actress Richa Chadha, who is working with Tiwari for the first time, has gone all out to ensure she has the required body of an athlete to essay the role of am upcoming kabaddi player. The sports drama revolves around Kabaddi and to look the part, both Kangana Ranaut and Richa Chadha are training intensely for the role.

According to a report in Mid-Day, the 'Fukrey' actor, is finding it difficult to lose weight as she had recently gained almost eight kilos for her 'Shakeela' biopic. To do justice to the character, the actor's schedule includes daily sessions of kabaddi as well as intense workouts. She also revealed that she trains at two different centres which focuses on functional training and the other on building muscle. 

 

"My body is complaining because of the extremities I have put it through. I had to gain weight for Shakeela, and now, I have to lose it. But as an actor, one has to be a shape-shifter," the actor told Mid-Day. Richa has also taken note of her diet and increased the amount of protein intake. She told the Tabloid, "I have upped my protein intake. I am vegan, so my diet can't include tofu." 

The actor had shot for the first schedule of Panga in the last week of November and was quite excited for the same. "I'm excited to be joining the team... 'Panga' is a very exciting project for me as it's unlike anything I have done before. I have personally always wanted to be a part of a sports film," Richa had said in a statement.
