Priyanka Chopra, who is training for the Mary Kom biopic, was in Imphal to do research on her role as the boxing Olympic medallist.

Despite having a hectic schedule, Priyanka took time out and visited Kom and the place where the boxing champ practises.

“This was solely for a research for the film on Mary Kom,” the 30-year-old said in a statement. “Omung Kumar (director of the film) and the team were given a warm welcome. It was wonderful as people of Manipur are known to be courteous,” she added.

She hopes to visit the Manipur capital again.

The film is being produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
