Priyanka Chopra gets in shape for Mary Kom biopic
Priyanka Chopra is excited about her biopic on five-time World Boxing champion Mary Kom. So much so, that the actor was rigorously preparing for the role even while she was shooting for Krrish 3. In fact, Priyanka, who normally loves to gorge on director Rakesh Roshan’s homemade food on the sets, avoided this indulgence this time.
A source close to the actor reveals, “Priyanka is a foodie and loves homemade food. Roshan Sr always offers freshly made food on the sets of his film, but Priyanka could not indulge as she was following a strict diet to get in shape for the biopic.”
Priyanka, who had also visited Kom in Imphal in July, 2013, was also following her fitness regime while shooting for the film.
The source adds, “While Priyanka has given her best for Krrish 3, she also did all that was possible to prepare for her role as Kom. Apart from visiting her at her place and learning about her life, she is also working out hard and following a strict fitness regimen to get into character,” adds the source.
