The grapevine is abuzz with the news that Shah Rukh Khan’s VFX Studio will apparently help recreate Priyanka Chopra’s Mary Kom look in her upcoming film. Priyanka, who is due to begin work on Omung Kumar’s biopic on Mary Kom, five time World Boxing champion, just wrapped up the shooting for Krrish 3
According to a leading daily, the film’s makers had initially decided on using prosthetics to create the mongoloid features on PC’s face, like the population from North east zone of India. The use of prosthetics was mildly ruled out after much contemplation when it was analyzed that the film will have multiple boxing ring scenes since it is about a boxing champion.
The incessant punching will wear out the prosthetics. So, in order to make her look more enduring, the Northeastern features will be added at VFX in the film’s post production period. But the film director informed a leading daily that both options are being considered and will be used accordingly after weighing them wisely. Reportedly Priyanka Chopra will also been seen sporting a headgear in many fight sequences of the film.
Since the film is still in its early stages, they are measuring their options and trying to take the best possible option out of it. However, Kumar discreetly denied to confirm the news of roping in Shah Rukh Khan’s VFX studios to help him out with the film’s post production.
