Jassie Gill’s character in Panga is a manifestation of several modern, middle-class men in present-day India

The trailer
of director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwary’s Panga (Nil Battey Sannata, Bareilly Ki
Barfi), featuring Kangana Ranaut, Jassie Gill and Richa Chaddha in principal
roles, released a while back and generated a lot of interest amongst the
audience. In the film, Kangana is seen as a 32-year old woman who, like so many
women in India, struggles to strike a balance between her domestic
responsibilities and career based duties. While she is trying to do that, an
opportunity comes along to get back to playing kabaddi, a sport which she was
once devoted to, at a professional level.

Among other
things, the trailer showcased the relationship shared by Jaya (Kangana Ranaut)
and her husband Prashant (Jassie Gill). We see 
Prashant being a pillar of support in Jaya’s life and motivates her to
get back at doing what she liked so much – playing kabaddi. Prashant, in a way,
represents so many modern men in the country today who, unlike the ones from
the earlier generations, encourage their better halves to pursue a professional
career and achieve their dreams.

Jassie, who
has been a popular singer and actor back in Punjab, managed to impress the
pan-India audience with his performance in his debut Hindi film Happy Phirr
Bhag Jayegi. In that film, too, he played a very positive character and with
his selection of roles, one feels he is inclined towards playing such roles.

While
Kangana plays the central character in Panga, Jassi is expected to bring a
nuanced performance as Prashant and leave a lasting impression on the audience
all over again in his second Hindi outing.
