Priyanka Chopra as Mary Kom in Sanjay Leela Bhansali film?

No. Of Views : 7548

Dated : November, 6, 2012 BY

The renowned filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali had earlier announced that he is planning to make a biopic film on boxing champion Mary Kom, where the well-known art director Omung Kumar will make his debut as director with this film. Now the latest buzz roaming around is that the very talented Priyanaka Chopra might play the character of Mary Kom, who is the bronze medal winner and boxing champion of Olympics 2012.

A source close to the project reveals that Priyanka is currently going through the script, and as she shares a good rapport with Bhansali, she might rope into this project very soon. The source also said that PC was apparently in talks with the filmmaker for his 'Ram Leela', but as things didn't work out for that film, they might come together for this film.

On the other side, debutante director Omung said that they might consider for a new face also, but whoever would be roped in, will have to go for vigorous training to gulp down Mary's body language, lifestyle and moves for the film.

Interestingly apart from Priyanka Chopra, actress Katrina Kaif's name is also being considered to play the 29-year-old boxing champion in the movie. If everything goes well, then director Omung and producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali might commence their project on floors by March-April 2013.
