Mumbai:Sanjay Leela Bhansali has signed
Bollywood hottie Priyanka Chopra to play Mary Kom in
his next movie. Priyanka Chopra has done some good action films in
the past and that is the reason why Bhansali chose her.
A source confered the news to a daily and said that Priyanka
Chopra said yes to the project on Sunday. However, the meeting
didn't happen in person, the work on her character will begin
shortly. The source also said that Priyanka has done action films
in the past and she can pull off the role.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali specially met Mary Kom some days back to
discuss the film based on her life. The Source further added,"Since
Mary Kom is a boxer, her body and skin type is different. Even her
accent is not what you hear here. Priyanka will undergo some
physical training and workshops to help her understand the
character better. Of course, at some point, there will be some
meetings between Mary Kom and Priyanka too."
So, do you think Priyanka Chopra is the perfect choice to play
Mary Kom on screen?
