Priyanka Chopra, who plays Mary Kom in a biopic on the Olympic bronze medallist, asserts that she will be able to convince the audience in the role of a boxer. The actress has never played any sport in her life, yet she is confident of playing a sportsperson in the film. “I will try my best to play a sportsperson in the film. I will try my best to be as close to the boxer as I can. I will convince you as a boxer in the film,” Priyanka said.

“For me, Mary Kom is very inspiring. At the age of 32, even after having three kids, she is still in the boxing ring, has been to the Olympics and again she will start training for it,” said Priyanka. The biopic on Mary Kom is being directed by Omung Kumar and is produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
