Actress Priyanka Chopra, who will be next seen in the much-awaited biopic ‘Mary Kom’, said it is disrespectful to see it as a film made in sync with the trend of sports dramas. Priyanka will essay the life story of Olympic medal-winning boxer Mary Kom in the film, produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

Last year, biopic on life of national sprinter Milkha Singh, played by actor Farhan Akhtar, had won the film several accolades, while Irrfan’s stint as Paan Singh Tomar in the 2012 film of same name bagged two National awards.

The Fashion star made it clear that it was wrong to compare the film with Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. “I think you can’t compare Mary Kom with Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. For the first time a film has been made on life of a female athlete. It is disrespectful to say it is a trend of sports biopic film. Mary Kom is the pride of our nation,” Priyanka told reporters here at the trailer launch of the film today.

The 32-year-old actress said Mary Kom is so far the toughest film of her career. “It is the most hardest film of my career. To bring her (Mary Kom’s) personality on screen was the hardest part. To bring the part of a fighter, a homemaker, and a mother was a challenge,” Priyanka said.
