She spoke in length about her films, Mary Kom in
general. Go on, read about what she spoke!
What do you think of your films and what do you expect out of
Priyanka says, "I never keep expectations from any of my films.
Whatever you think in your head it happens. They say man proposes
and God disposes. I believe in destiny tremendously and hard work
goes hand in hand. So you just do the best and after that whatever
happens it happens for good."
Every movie has its own luck. I always try not to have
expectations from my movies, but obviously I would want people to
love my work, my movie. I want people to be inspired by Mary
Kom because thats what happened to me.
Why is it that you give your everything to promote Mary
I am promoting Mary Kom because I am the only person in
this movie whom people know. Promotions are very important for me.
I believe in commitment and whenever I sign a movie I do everything
to give my best. Every movie is Mughal-E-Aazam for
But, why Mary Kom is very important for you? Can you
please brief it up for us?

What does working with new directors mean to you?
I have worked with loads of new directors Nikhil adwani, Tarun

directors have become major hit and some have become duds.
I am a complete director's actor, but when you are working with
a new director you cannot judge a film by directors name. You have
to judge it by the story of the film. It was his idea to make Marry
Kom and I have to give him full credit for having a thought of this
What made you do this film Mary Kom?
Writers are very important in this industry. Unfortunately,
nobody gives them enough credit or money for their valuable work.
When I first read the story, I judged it on the basis of it and
said yes immediately. I knew Omung for so many years as a
production designer. I knew he had a beautiful vision. Sanjay Leela
was like a cherry on the cake for me. He is one of the finest
filmmaker in the industry. That made me doubly sure that this Mary
Kom will work out wonderfully!
The Bald Look
How much effort did you put in for this movie? How much did you
train and get that look?
Being an actor, I'm supposed to train, maintain my body and look
fit always. However, I don't train because I'm very lazy. I look
atheletic and fit because my constitution is like that. My parents
look like that so I am blessed too. But, I had to go to the gym for
Mary Kom which was like a punishment.
But the hardwork and effort that I have put in has all come out
very well. You will all get to see it on September 5 when it
