Priyanka Chopra eager to learn boxing from Mary Kom
While Priyanka Chopra is eager to learn boxing from the feted Indian pugilist Mary Kom, the latter is excited about the prospect of taking Priyanka on a tour of her hometown in Manipur.

Actress Priyanka Chopra, who is set to play M.C. Mary Kom in a movie, is keen to learn from the Olympic bronze medallist how to wear boxing gloves.

"Now off to my first meeting with the one and only Mary Kom! Dhan tana... Will make her teach me how to wear my boxing gloves," Priyanka tweeted Tuesday night.

The 30-year-old will be portraying the five-time women's boxing champion in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film.

It is also said that Mary Kom herself might also make a special appearance in the film, as the opponent of the on-screen Mary Kom.

The movie, which will be directed by Omung Kumar, will go on the floors early next year.


Mary Kom eager to take Priyanka on Manipur tour

Actress Priyanka Chopra is set to play M.C. Mary Kom in a film by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The legendary female boxer says she will be more than happy to show the actress around her house in Manipur and introduce her to the way she lives there.

"Right now I am not sitting with her or the producer. We are going to sit for one or two days and discuss it. I would like to be there in Manipur to show the situation, how we are living. That will be very great," Mary Kom said here Tuesday at the launch of a new Super Fight League (SFL) company Pro SFL.

"I am also very happy that she will come and see how we are living," she added.

If recent reports are to be believed, Priyanka's preparation for the role requires her to travel to Manipur to learn about Mary Kom's life.

Meanwhile, Mary Kom says any actress could have played her as all of them are very talented.

"Any actress can play me because all of them are very talented. Of course, now Priyanka will play me and I am very happy and lucky for that," she said.

Asked if she has any interest in the acting world, Mary Kom said: "That will be very hard for me. They would not be able to finish (a film) for five to six years because I am not good at acting. When I will face the camera, I will get nervous."

But she is extremely comfortable in the boxing ring.

"In the ring I can do anything, any style of boxing, movement or trick. But acting is very hard for me," she added.

Mary Kom, a five-time World Champion and Olympic bronze medallist, has been roped in as the brand ambassador for SFL, started by industrialist Raj Kundra in collaboration with actor Sanjay Dutt earlier this year.
