The launch of the poster of MARY KOM and the trailer has already generated quite a buzz! Celebrities including Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar, Bipasha Basu, Deepika Padukone and more have tweeted about their excitement for MARY KOM!
I am a Priyanka Chopra fan and it’s amazing to see that she will play MARY KOM! However I do believe that it would have been better if the role was given to somebody else who actually looks like MARY KOM. You can google around to see the discussions online and why some feel strongly regarding the need to have a North Eastern face play in mainstream Hindi cinema and as Mary Kom.
