Priyanka Learning ‘Gatka’, a Fighting Form of North India

By: Biplob Kishore Deb

Priyanka Chopra will be seen in some fighting scenes in the Goldie Behl’s second project ‘Dorna’ where Priyanka will be seen against Abhishek Bachchan. Ahead of this movie she is now learning Gatka, one form of Punjabi fighting. It is noteworthy that she showed some of her martial art skill in her last super hit movie Don directed by Farhan Akhtar. For playing those shots of Don she learned martial art for one month. I am quoting some lines regarding this news from a apunkachoice report:

A trainer from Ludhiana has reportedly been roped in to give training to Priyanka. The training includes both defensive and attacking moves.

Priyanka has already shot for a few portions of her action scenes in the movie’s shooting schedule in Prague, Czech Republic. Despite freezing temperature there, Priyanka gave her action scenes with full gusto. And she seems quite impressed by the final results on the screen.

It seems that former Miss World, Priyanka Chopra is gradually becoming the action heroin of Bollywood. However, it is really praiseworthy that one actress is working hard to make her role more believable.
