"Mary Kom" directed by debutant director Omung Kumar is based on the life and success of five-time world champion and Olympic medal-winning boxer, Mary Kom.
Chopra seems to be quite excited about her upcoming movie, describing it as the toughest role in her career. She even visited Kom's native land in Manipur in order to learn more about her life.
"We recorded Mary when she was talking in Manipuri. Even when she talks in Hindi, Mary has a sing-song way of speaking and she emphasises on certain words. The tapes have helped Priyanka practise the dialect," Hindustan Times quoted Kumar as saying.
"Mary Kom" produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Viacom 18, is set to hit screens on 5 September. The movie was earlier scheduled for 2 October, but the team decided for an early release as two big budget movies - Vishal Bhardwaj's "Haider" and Hrithik Roshan-starrer "Bang Bang" occupied the long weekend slot of Gandhi Jayanti.
The "Gunday" star went on to post another picture late Monday night revealing her killer pose in a second poster.
