While at an event, Mary Kom, the lady who made India proud by bagging a Bronze at the London Olympics 2012, gleefully said that “Any actress is good enough to play my role. They are all talented.”
A lot has been talked about the biopic on Mary Kom, which is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s idea to etch her life on the celluloid. Mary despite of a lot of struggles in her life brought glory to the Indians, by bringing a Bronze for India at the Olympics this year. So Bhansali zeroed on PeeCee, Priyanka Chopra, to play the role of the five-time World Boxing Champion Mary Kom.
Mary further added that “I am happy that Priyanka is doing my role” and gleefully offers herself in if while filming the cast and crew need any help.
Mary who is the brand ambassador of SFL (Super Fight League), at the SFL Deo Event, launched the SFL Deodorants Aspire, Inspire and Desire, donning the tagline is “Har Spray May Punch”, along with Raj Kundra.
When asked whether she would like to debut in a film, Mary just quipped, “It is hard for me. I am not good at acting. I get nervous while facing the camera.”
Mary holds No.4 rank in AIBA World Women’s Ranking Flyweight category and recently the Election Commission of India has made her one of its “national icons”.
