Playing the role of female boxer Mary Kom definitely has been one of the toughest thing to do for Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra and her tough voyage from being stunning Priyanka to strong Mary Kom can be assessed by the words of Priyanka's makeup artiste.
Already, Priyanka has endured many injuries since the start of shooting for the biopic and recently, a mistimed punch knocked Priyanka down and left the lower portion of her right eye dark. Not only that, the director of the film Omung Kumar has decided to retain the mark below her eye to have a more real picture.
"While filming a boxing scene with an actor from North-East, Priyanka got accidentally hit below her eye and fell on the floor due to the impact. She got the injury mark on the exact spot and so the director decided to retain it. The cut mark that you will eventually see on screen under her eye is real but we did implement makeup to make it look deeper," informed Priyanka's makeup artiste, Uday Shirale.
Although Priyanka was strong enough to overcome the pain but it took almost an hour for the brave actress to re-start the shooting.
Priyanka's look specialist also rejected the rumours of her using prosthetic makeup in the film Mary Kom Biopic and claimed to have mostly used regular makeup. "The prosthetics haven't taken me longer than an hour but mostly it's regular make-up only and she would be ready within 20 minutes flat," he said.
Priyanka who herself also admitted the journey as one of her hardest is finally done with the shooting of her much anticipated upcoming movie Mary Kom and on April 18 she tweeted, "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." The movie Mary Kom is set to release on October 2.
