Priyanka Chopra has begun shooting for Mary Kom’s biopic during the mourning period of her father passing away.
The mahurat takes place at Filmistan today and after three weeks will move to Manali for the next schedule.
A source close to the actress told Times Of India said, “Priyanka shared a very close bond with her father. He always wanted to see her successful, and that’s what has kept her motivated and focussed on her work.”
The biopic, which is Omung Kumar’s directorial debut, will be the first movie Chopra will shoot after her father’s demise. She cancelled all her film commitments to be by her father’s side – since 4th June.
