Set to release on October 14th, Code Name:Tiranga, starring Parineeti Chopra, is a story of a spy on an unfaltering and fearless mission for her nation in a race against time where sacrifice is her only choice.
For her role as a RAW agent in Code Name:Tiranga, actress Parineeti Chopra took it to 11 and trained really hard to get into shape for her character. Not only did she do work in weight lifting and running, Parineeti also studied the Israeli martial art discipline of Krav Maga in preparation for her role.
Parineeti explained, “I have had this dream (of doing action) for five years. I have done so many rom-com, dramas, I feel I will be able to do action, I just need an opportunity…”
Adding, “One of the key action techniques of an agent is hand-to-hand combat, so I learnt Krav Maga a form of martial arts for a total of 3 months to get my action sequences right. It is a very physically and mentally demanding form of martial arts as it’s not only just movements, but it also needs a lot of mental awareness of the surroundings one is in which is what exactly an agent needs to do on a mission.”
“Most of my fight sequences were against men who were a lot taller than me like the stunt men and co-actor Sharad Kelkar and sometimes the fight sequences would require them to fight with their full body weight,” she said.
