At a recent promotional event of the movie Mary Kom, actress Priyanka Chopra got miffed and snapped at a reporter! As we know Bollywood is trying its best to depict our country’s unsung heroes from the sports field through celluloid. With movies like Paan Singh Tomar and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, tinsel town is bringing sportsmanship qualities of heroes from the sports field to limelight as part biographical movies.
When the reporter pointed this out and asked Priyanka if Mary Kom will be part of the new Bollywood trend created to churn out a successful hit at the box office, Priyanka was taken aback. The actress firmly stated that no one can ever compare Milkha Singh and Paan Singh Tomar with Mary Kom as they are very different personalities.
Since this is the very first time a Bollywood movie has been made on a female athlete, she begs to differ that Mary Kom is following any such trend. And the fact that this is being looked at as a trend is very disrespectful, according to Priyanka. Though both Priyanka Chopra and producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali were subjected to the question, Bhansali chose to not answer it. Priyanka was very offended and reacted quite accordingly.
