Priyanka, who plays the titular role in Mary Kom, says that this film was probably the toughest film to shoot, in her career. Said Priyanka, who posted a series of tweets, on Twitter, “Last two days of Mary Kom shoot. It’s been harder than the hardest. Kudos to the crew for keeping it together. All good things come to an end.”
Priyanka has reportedly undergone a physically demanding schedule for the film, training hard and modifying her diet and exercise regime, to get under the skin of the Olympic medallist boxer, Mary Kom.
Priyanka Chopra, who has won the National Award for her work in Fashion, said that “every day of shooting the movie has been inspirational.” She said that she had “pushed her boundaries to sink her teeth into the role and in fact, also spent a lot of time with the sports icon to get her act right for the film.”
Directed by Omung Kumar, Mary Kom is gearing up for a 2 October, 2014 i.e. a Gandhi Jayanti release.
