Priyanka Chopra is working really hard for her upcoming movie which is a biopic on Mary Kom, the boxing Olympic medalist. The actress has an entirely different look in the film and she is trying really hard to get into Mary Kom's shoes. Priyanka is so involved in this movie that she visited the boxing champion's town in Manipur.

To fit into the role of Mary Kom, Priyanka has been working out very hard. Mary Kom hails from Manipur and belongs to the Kom tribal community.

But despite having a hectic schedule, Priyanka took some time off from the shoot and met Kom and visited the place where the boxing champ practices. "This was solely for a research of the film on Mary Kom," said the 30-year-old actress. After the visit, Priyanka Chopra is back in Mumbai to resume the shooting of the biopic.
