Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali is making a biographical film on Mary Kom depicting her struggle to the top. Actor Priyanka Chopra will be enacting the pugilist.
"If I act in the movie, it will definitely flop. I am not good in acting, only good in the ring. I don't want it to flop as I want the movie to do well," said the five-time World Champion on the sidelines of Cycling Federation of India's Tour de India at the Buddh International Circuit (BIC).
"I am very happy and excited about the film. It's like a dream come true. Never thought a movie would be made on me and on my life history. I am really thankful to the filmmakers," said the mother of two, who met Priyanka a couple of days back in Mumbai to discuss the movie.
Commenting on the more serious issues of the suspension of the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) and Indian Boxing Federation (IBF), she said: "I do not know what is right or wrong but what I can say is sportspersons are not happy with this. I don't have a good feeling about this and the issue is upsetting. Hope the issues get solved quickly."
