Priyanka Chopra will be seen in the forthcoming biopic titled ‘Mary Kom’. In this film she will be seen in the avatar of a champion boxer. This film revolves around the life of Mary Kom who won big at the Olympics several times. Priyanka Chopra has been receiving a lot of compliments for her role even before the film can release. From the poster and the trailer of this film, we can see that the actress has worked very hard for this role. In the poster we see her in a sporty avatar in a messed up look. The actress portrays zero glamour in this role as it required looking authentic.
Kareena Kapoor recently expressed her thoughts in an interview as she praised Priyanka for her efforts. She said, “I really applaud Rani and Priyanka for Mardaani and Mary Kom. Hats off to the two for even attempting such a different kind of a genre. I definitely tell them this whenever I meet them because I myself can’t do something like this”. Kareena will be seen in the forthcoming sequel ‘Singham Returns’ starring opposite Ajay Devgn who also starred in the original ‘Singham’. She plays the character of a Maharashtrian girl in this film and will be seen speaking a few lines in Marathi during the film. She will also be seen driving an auto rickshaw for a short sequence in this film. It is nice to see that she is openly appreciating the efforts of other lead actresses in the industry.
We realize that Bollwood film makers are putting in efforts to change the gender stereo type that people have. Another film that is set to do this is the forthcoming Rani Mukherjee starrer Mardaani. In this film we see Rani playing the character of a fearless cop. This film revolves around female trafficking and the story depicts the struggles that victims to this heinous crime have to face. Rani Mukerji plays a very bold and strong role as she fights against this crime that demands immediate attention from society. Rani’s look in this film is not glamorous just like Priyanka’s look in ‘Mary Kom’ as she intends to look authentic in her role.
We are now experiencing Bollywood venturing into a genre of movies that are far from just plain entertainment and give us more to ponder about. Mary Kom Movie is set to release on the 5th of September alongside ‘Daawat-e-Ishq’ starring Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Roy Kapur.
Mary Kom is said to be inspired by the biopic on the life of a champion athlete titled ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, starring Farhan Akhtar in the lead role. It will be interesting to watch whether Mary Kom remains to be more successful at the box office after its release. From the poster and trailer of the film we can assume that this film will go on to be a blockbuster at the box office and will be loved by the audience. It is likely that Priyanka Chopra will win awards for her acting performance in this film.
