Mumbai, March 21 (IANS) Actress Kangana Ranaut says her movie “Panga” is very close to her heart. Kangana is happy that her film “Panga” will now stream on Hotstar VIP in this difficult time due to the global outbreak of coronavirus.
Women have donned several different hats since time immemorial; from a bread-winner to a home-maker.
“‘Panga’ brings to life the tug-of-war between passion and responsibilities in the most idealistic way possible,” Kangana said.
“The movie begs to answer the question: for how long will women have to sacrifice their dreams to build a perfect family, and who says we can’t do it all? It’s a movie that is close to my heart and I’m certain many women across the country will relate to it.
“In a time when going to the theatre is a big no-no, people can enjoy this movie at the touch of a button on Hotstar VIP,” she added.
Directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, “Panga” also features Neena Gupta, Richa Chadha and Jassie Gill.
