Directors of Mary Kom Retain the Injury Mark while practicing for a shoot
The forthcoming film titled ‘Mary Kom’ is set to honor another sports star that made it big at the Olympics. In this film, Priyanka Chopra plays the role of a boxer and depicts the real life struggle of boxing champion Mary Kom. Priyanka Chopra has to undergo a lot of training for this film to match the character she was required to play. From the poster and the trailer we can say that the actress has remained successful in doing so. The stunning actress was injured several times during filming this movie.
She sustained one such injury while shooting for a boxing sequence that went wrong. This caused her to get a cut mark under her eye. Her make-up artist worked on this and made the cut look deeper as we will soon see on screen. Uday Shirale who worked on her look said, “Priyanka was filming a boxing scene with an actor from the North-East. She fell on the floor due to the impact. She got the shot spot on, so director Omung Kumar decided to retain it. The cut mark that you will eventually see on screen under her eye is real but we did touch it up with makeup to make it look deeper.” It will be interesting to watch Priyanka in this never seen before avatar.
For this film, Priyanka was hell bent on getting her character right and she went the extra mile to get everything right for her role to look authentic. The actress even met Mary Kom and took tips from her as she studied her behaviour and took cues from it so she could incorporate it with her performance. In the poster, we see Priyanka in a completely different avatar as never seen before. Her expression in this poster of the film says it all. This action packed role that Priyanka is about to play might just bring her many awards.
Mary Kom releases on the 5th of September, which happens to be the same release date for ‘Daawat-e-Ishq’, starring her cousin Parineeti Chopra and actor Aditya Roy Kapur. It looks like both these talented cousins will have a war at the box-office after they release simultaneously. In this case Priyanka’s character will definitely have a stronger impact than that of Parineeti’s.
The directors of this film have put in their best efforts to make this film as authentic as possible. They tried their best to tell the tale of Mary Kom and her achievements and struggles. This film is expected to be very successful at the box-office. Earlier we saw a biopic titled ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ starring Farhan Akhtar which received a lot of success in terms of box-office returns and appreciation from the audience. Reports also suggest that another biopic showcasing the life of cricketer Mahindra Singh Dhoni is about to be made, although these reports are not fully confirmed. It looks like biopic’s on sports stars is the next big thing in Bollywood.
