Mary Kom & Priyanka Chopra

'Mary Kom' starring Priyanka Chopra

The latest news doing the rounds is that filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali held a special screening of his upcoming film, Mary Kom۪, for superstar Shah Rukh Khan. The duo have had a great working rapport in the past and worked together on the extremely successful, Devdas۪ (2002), but another project never materialised between the two though there have often been rumours of them reuniting.

Bhansali is busy with the pre-production of Bajirao Mastaani۪ and finished working on Mary Kom۪ whereas Shah Rukh Khan has been busy shooting for Farah Khan۪s film, Happy New Year۪_ Last week, SRK saw the film (Mary Kom۪) and he discussed it with Bhansali for nearly two hours,۝ a source informed Mid Day.

Khan has always expressed his interest in the sporting field and with Mary Kom۪ being a biopic on India۪s Olympic-winning female boxer, that could very well be one of the reasons Bhansali wanted Khan۪s feedback on the film.

Mary Kom۪ is being directed by Omung Kumar and stars Priyanka Chopra in the title role.
