|Actress Priyanka Chopra with Boxer Mary Kom|
Actress Priyanka Chopra was in Manali for the shoot of her upcoming project on boxer Mary Com Biopic but she insisted on changing the location after a bug bit her, which caused rashes on her skin.
Producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali and director Omung Kumar tried convincing Priyanka but in vain.
The producers have now created a new set at Filmistan studio.
In a latest news published by zee, priyanka asserts that she will be able to convince the audience in the role of a boxer, though she has never played any sport in her life, yet she is confident of playing a sportsperson in the film.
Priyanka, who has had personal sessions with the Manipur-based Kom, says her spirit is very inspiring for her as well as for the youth.
“For me, Mary Kom is very inspiring. At the age of 32, even after having three kids, she is still in the boxing ring, has been to the Olympics and again she will start training for it,” said Priyanka.
Kom is a five-time world boxing champion and the only woman boxer to have won a medal in each one of the six world championships. But recognition eluded her for many years and she only got her due after winning a bronze medal at the London Olympics.
“She has proved to all of us that being a woman and coming from a small town, where enough facilities for training are not there, if you put your mind in something, then you can achieve anything. She is a precious gemstone of our country and very influential to our generation,” Priyanka added.
Those who are not aware, we want to inform you that Assamese Actor Diganta Hazarika will also play a role of Priyanka’s gym instructor in this movie.
