And thus, the actress wants to incorporate maximum possible
inputs in the biopic from Mary Kom's real life.
Priyanka wanted this film to be as authentic as possible and so
visited Mary Kom's house, talked to her about her life and did lots
of home-work. Now, we learnt that the wedding gown that
Priyanka will be wearing in the film has been designed as per the
gown that Mary Kom wore during her actual wedding.
Makers of Mary Kom also asked the boxer to give her
wedding gown to them so that they could make a similar gown for
Priyanka in the film. "In the film we had made it a point to
be as authentic as possible and we knew that we had to shoot the
wedding scene exactly the way Mary and Onler had got
Duplicating Onler's suit was not a problem but Mary Kom's dress
was difficult to duplicate. I briefed my designer to get the exact
material as Mary's dress. I wanted the same motifs that were on her
gown and we got all the details," said Omung Kumar, Director of Mary
The makers even discovered an old church for the reel life wedding as that will give a sense of Mary Kom's real wedding which was done in a simple way.
