Champion boxer Mary Kom who is thrilled about the forthcoming biopic which is based on her life story, says that Priyanka Chopra (Who plays her role in the film) has a similar story. In a recent interview during the films promotions Mary Kom said that she had exchanged a warm and light-hearted conversation with actress Priyanka Chopra when they met.
She went on to say that Priyanka Chopra is actually the best choice of actress to play her character in the biopic. Mary Kom also revealed that they shared a similar story. She expressed this thought as she said, â€œPeople found her something of a tomboy, even though she wasn't. Even I had the same; everyone at home would call me a tomboy as I would often dress like a boy and wear jeans and tees and also played with boys. But in spite of all that, I am not a tomboy.â€
