Priyanka Chopra has been showered with compliments since the release of the first look of her next movie Mary Kom. But the best praise has come from the champ boxer herself.
We hear the five-time World Boxing Champion Mary Kom, whose biopic the film is, was so impressed upon seeing the first two posters that has Priyanka in her boxer avatar, that she picked up the phone and called the actress.
“Mary Kom really liked the posters. She giggled a lot. It was very cute,” Priyanka is quoted as saying.
Before the shoot of the film and even during it, Priyanka Chopra met up with Mary Kom and even visited her house in Manipur. The actress not just developed the body of a boxer but also studied boxing to slip into the skin of the character. After all, she had to look a world champion on the screen.
Priyanka Chopra has described Mary Kom as her toughest film to date. It’s produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and directed by Omung Kumar. The film will hit theatres on September 5.
