National Award winning actress Priyanka Chopra’s fierce avatar in the first look poster of her forthcoming film “Mary Kom”, is for many a testimony to her versatility as a performer.In the film, which marks Omung Kumar’s debut as a director, Priyanka plays the title role of Olympic medal-winning boxer M.C. Mary Kom. After months of training and hardwork, the first look seems promising.

The Sanjay Leela Bhansali-produced film gives us a ringside view of Olympian Mary Kom’s real-life journey from determined rustic to feted prizefighter. As played by Priyanka, the celluloid Mary is gritty, single-minded, bloody but unbowed before a hostile father, undefeated by those of little faith.

All sinew and muscles, Priyanka juggles a desi accent with the physical challenges of playing a boxer. The cast includes Nepali actor Sunil Thapa as Mary Kom’s coach. Mary Kom is directed by first-timer Omung Kumar, production designer and art designer for Mr Bhansali’s films Black and Saawariya. Mary Kom is expected to release on September 5.
