Adil Hussain on Priyanka Chopra’s portrayal of Mary Kom: I’d have definitely preferred someone from Northeast
Mirabai Chanu took the whole nation by storm as she recently got awarded a silver medal in the 2021 Olympic games being held in Tokyo for weightlifting. Sports biopics are all the trend in Bollywood and it could be interesting to watch Mirabai’s journey up on the big screen. Previously a biopic has been made in Bollywood of a prolific Northeastern boxer called ‘Mary Kom’ and Priyanka Chopra portrayed the lead character. The film was received well by the audience members and critics alike while Priyanka’s performance took the cake.
