Kangna Ranaut will reportedly play a kabaddi player in Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s next project.

According to Mid-Day, Ranaut, who is shooting for ‘Mental Hai Kya’ in London, has already allotted dates from October to December for the sports film.

A source revealed to the publication, “Kangana’s Mental Hai Kya wraps up on July 11. She will immediately fly back to Mumbai and complete some patchwork of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. She has to devote two days to a brand shoot. But, for the most part of August, she and Ashwiny will be busy doing workshops for the kabaddi film.”

The director is said to be in search for a coach who will train Ranaut in kabaddi. A source added, “Ashwiny is screening national-level kabaddi champions’ profiles to find the one who can handhold Kangana through the sport. While Kangana has already started practising yoga to be able to master holding breath – a pre-requisite 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.”
