Mumbai, July 26 -- The trailer of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's biopic on pugilist Mary Kom has been released just a few days ago, but the Olympic medal-winning Indian boxer has already seen the film. She watched it with her husband, Onler Kom, at Bhansali's office recently and got very emotional.
Mary liked the way Priyanka has pulled off the role. She immediately called the actor and conveyed her appreciation for the effort put in. In fact, she got so emotional that her voice choked while talking.
The boxer says, "While watching the movie, I could recall all the difficulties I had faced and the hard work I put in to make it. I got nostalgic and that made me emotional. Priyanka has done a great job. She looked like a boxer, and I know she has put in a lot of effort," says Mary.
Priyanka too could not hold back her emotions. "Mary had just seen the film, and let's just say that there were tears at both ends. That nod of approval was gratifying, since it was coming from Mary herself," says Priyanka. Apparently, Zoya Akhtar, the director of the actor's next, was around when Priyanka got the call, since they were filming together in Turkey. The source says, "She too expressed her happiness and applauded the effort the actor has put in the film."
