New Delhi: If Priyanka Chopra’s role in “Mary Kom” as the five-time World boxing champion has changed the definition of “hero”, the movie’s producers too have a reason to smile as it has raked in Rs.17.25 crore in two days since release.
Based on the life of boxing champion M.C. Mary Kom, the unconventionally made biopic, which released Friday in 1,800 screens in the country, has many high points – Omung Kumar’s deft direction, convincing adaptation of real life story, and last but not the least – Priyanka’s “wow and convincing” performance.
Although biopics too take creative liberties, Kumar has tried to be as realistic as possible.
The Hindi film fraternity also lauded the film on social networking sites. Here’s what celebrities have to say:
Punit Malhotra: Watched Mary Kom last night (Saturday). Super film. And only one person could do that role. Hats off! @priyankachopra. (sic)
Anubhav Sinha: #MaryKom does 8Cr on day one. No Skin. No Music. Hero Definition readjusted. #HUGE #COURAGE #OMUNG #SANJAY #VIACOM @priyankachopra
