The day when Priyanka Chopra packed a punch on the big screen

Priyanka Chopra is truly making us proud, on cinematic front. Ever since the actress has started working on international projects, she has been juggling with her work commitments between the US and India, certainly becoming one of the busiest stars in the industry. After her last Bollywood film appearance in ‘Jai Gangaajal’ (2016), her fans and admirers are eagerly waiting to see her back on big screen in a Hindi film. Recently, we even heard reports that the actress is all set to team up with superstar Aamir Khan in astronaut Rakesh Sharma’s biopic, and will be playing his on-screen wife. However, there is no confirmation on the same, whatsoever.

The actress who made her debut in Bollywood with ‘The Hero: Love Story of a Spy’ (2003), got the opportunity to play a real life character with her 2014 released biopic ‘Mary Kom’ where she played the titular role of boxer MC Mary Kom. And it was today on September 5, when this film was released and the actress packed a punch on the big screen for the first time. (Also Check: From Ganpati darshan to chilling at Marine Drive, Priyanka is enjoying like a true Mumbaiite)

Talking about the film, it marked the directorial debut of Omung Kumar, who worked as a production designer in films like ‘Black’, ‘Saawariya’, ‘Yuvvraaj’, etc. Omung Kumar had once mentioned in an interview that he decided to start his career (as a director) with a female-oriented subject like ‘Mary Kom’ after the male actors were taking a lot of time to give him dates. Omung’s association with Sanjay Leela Bhansali even continued with ‘Mary Kom’ as the film was produced by him. The film also marked the acting debut of actor Darshan Kumaar who played the role of Onler Kom, the supportive and understanding husband of Mary Kom.

Upon its release, the film received positive reviews from critics, and went on to win hearts of everyone with its fantastic execution, taut script and without a doubt Priyanka Chopra’s bang on transformation and performance as boxer Mary Kom.

The film went on to win many accolades and even the most prestigious Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment at the 62nd National Film Awards.

Indeed, this day is a special one. Priyanka breathed life into the legendary boxer’s characters, so much so, that even Mary Kom was in awe of her. This day will always be remembered for bringing us an action-packed Priyanka.
