Priyanka Chopra: “I didn’t look like Mary Kom, so I decided to make my body like hers”

Filed under: Video Vault — Rajeev @ 11:46 pm

Priyanka Chopra stars as five-time boxing champion Mary Kom in a biopic on the life of the celebrated sports-star, and although the National Award-winning actress looks nothing like the Manipuri pugilist, she doesn’t see that as an impediment to portraying the Olympian. The film, directed by debutant Omang Kumar and produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, traces Mary Kom’s struggle from a poor rice-paddy farmer’s daughter to a national hero. Priyanka trained extensively for the part, and in this interview with Rajeev Masand, she says she wears her bruises like badges of honor.
