    The film Mary Kom starring Priyanka Chopra is based on a strong woman who fought all odds to become a boxing champion.

    However, when Mary Kom herself saw the film, tears started to flow down the cheeks of the boxing champion.

    During the music launch of the film, Mary Kom said that the movie resembles her struggle in life and after watching the film she started crying.

    "After I saw the movie, I recollected every aspect of my life. I became so emotional that I cried twice. Still I have tears in my eyes," said Mary Kom during the music launch.

    Meanwhile, actress Priyanka Chopra who is playing the role of Mary Kom in the film said that the boxer called her after watching the film and her tears brought tears to Priyanka's eyes also.

    "After watching the film Mary called me. I was at Turkey shooting for Dil Dhadakne Do. Mary was crying and I also started crying over the phone. It was a strange moment," asserted Priyanka.

    In the meantime, Mary Kom praised Priyanka's performance in the film saying that Priyanka certainly was the most suitable actress to play the role.

    "I knew that Bollywood has several actresses and I wanted this role to be played by someone who is fit and strong. I must say Omung Kumar (director) and Sanjay Leela Bhansali (producer) has chosen the perfect person for the film," said Mary.

    "Priyanka has worked very hard for the film as she had to undergo rigorous training. I am very impressed with her," the boxer added.
