Priyanka Chopra, who is playing the Olympian boxer Mary Kom in an upcoming biopic, seems to pack quite a punch on the sets of the film. She was spotted in a boxer avatar, in a boxer’s ring on the sets of the film. She seemed to pack quite a punch with trained boxers hired by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, to train the actress.
After this, the crew will be heading North for an outdoor shoot.
Meanwhile, Omung Kumar, the director said “I thought shooting the boxing sequences would be pretty daunting and was apprehensive as a biopic on a female boxer had never been attempted before. But the trained boxers made the process easy. And whenever there was a technical hitch, Mary Kom was always a call away and would drop in to supervise. I’m really impressed with Priyanka. Priyanka’s physical transformation will surprise everybody.”
