"Glamorous Indian star Priyanka Chopra completely transforms herself to play Mary Kom, world champion in women's boxing. From traditional village life in remote Manipur state to high-stakes bouts in India and around the world, this is a remarkable story of triumph. The film will have its world premiere at TIFF," said a statement from the organizers.

Directed by Omung Kumar, Mary Kom was made with the support of the five-time World Champion boxer herself. Priyanka spent a lot of time with Mary to understand the nuances, stance and style of a boxer like her.

The film's first look was unveiled via two posters earlier recently and they were received warmly on social networking sites.

The movie is slated for theatrical release October 2.
