Produced by Fox Star Studios, Panga is said to be the story of a new-age family which challenges stereotypes and dares to dream. The film promises to reaffirm the belief that nothing is impossible for a family which laughs, cries and dreams together.
Kangana will be playing a national-level kabbadi player in the movie while Jassie Gill will be seen as her husband. A heartwarming family tale, Panga explores familial love and instinctual affection between the members of a family. It is slated to hit theatres in 2019.
