In another tweet, she said that this is new India since the young actresses are essaying such roles. ''(Contd)....today mainstream young top actress at the peak of her career proudly plays maa ke roles and India loves, this is new India #Panga #24thJanuary,” read the tweet.
In another tweet, she also praised Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan and said that instead of 'hiding her motherhood', she flaunts it on the screen which is applaudable.
This generation of mothers is very lucky off screen we have working mothers like Kareena K Khan who don’t hide their motherhood but flaunt it and on screen we have great actor like Kangana play mother in leading protagonist roles in mainstream films ðŸ¥°ðŸ™Â— Rangoli Chandel (@Rangoli_A) December 19, 2019
Kangana earlier revealed that she found the story of Panga touching. "My family has been my pillar of strength and have always stood by me in thick and thin. I could really relate to the emotions of the film. Plus, Ashwiny is known for her slice-of-life films and I loved her recent work Bareilly Ki Barfi. Panga is doubly special for me as for the first time, I will play the role of a national-level kabbadi player. That's going to be challenging for sure! I am looking forward to some exciting times with Ashwiny and the Fox Star team [the producers]," the Queen actor had said.
Earlier there were reports saying that Ashwiny had made Kangana sign a ‘no-interference’ clause. However, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari had slammed the rumours saying, "As directors and actors our happiness is your appreciation. For me Panga is a story which i wanted to tell. A story very close to my heart and I could see only Kangana bringing life to the character. I request everyone not to be judgemental and together allow me to breathe the air of oneness like the support and love you have given me for my previous films. The news which has been floating around is false and baseless which should not be allowed to grow."
Meanwhile, the film also stars Neena Gupta and Richa Chaddha in prominent roles and is slated to hit the screens on 24 January, 2020.
