Based on the life of Olympic medal-winning pugilist Mary Kom, the movie is directed by debutant Omung Kumar.
Talking about Priyanka portraying her on screen, the boxer had said earlier, "She is a simple and dedicated person. I can relate to her. I’m sure she will do a great job."
Mary Kom is slated to hit theatres on September 5.
"It’s a phenomenal journey — a lovely story that has not just inspired me as a woman, but [can influence] anyone who wants to be more than what they’re told is their limit. Her journey has been a struggle and is really inspiring — personally, and as an actor," says Priyanka Chopra.
