Priyanka Chopra in 'Mary Kom'

Priyanka Chopra goes bald for 'Mary Kom'

For an actor, there comes a time where one has to step out of their comfort zone completely. For Priyanka Chopra this moment has come many times, and in her upcoming release ‘Mary Kom’, the audiences will once again see the actress in a totally different avatar.

A part of the film required Chopra to have gone bold which she took on without hesitation. “Mary has done it (gone bald) in her life. This is an authentic scene in the film and I was very excited about it,” ZEE Newsreport her stating.

From the moment that the film was announced, it was clear that this wasn’t going to be a glamorous role. In relation to this Chopra went onto add, “First of all I am an actor, so as an actor it is my responsibility that whatever character I take up I do it with honesty. This is always my personal challenge that I set for myself that how differently I can portray all my characters. So I was not at all hesitant, in fact I was very excited.”

The actress’s bald look was done through aesthetics, however Chopra hasn’t ruled out taking on this look for real, “Never say never. I always surprise myself, so you never know.”

Hitting the big screens on 5th September, ‘Mary Kom’ has Omung Kumar in the directors chair with Sanjay Leela Bhansali as the producer.
