Mary Kom biopic’s release postponed

Friday, June 13, 2014

Priyanka Chopra's hero-giri in 'Mary Kom' just got much bigger. In order to buy time to give the film the global appeal of 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag', director Omang Kumar's 'Mary Kom' will no longer be released on October 2, as per plans, thereby leaving the coast clear for the Hrithik Roshan-Katrina Hollywood remake 'Bang Bang' and Vishal Bhardwaj's Shakespearean adaptation 'Haider'.

'Mary Kom' is a project into which Priyanka has been pouring her blood, sweat and tears. It is now being revamped into a much larger sports biopic than before.

Says a source close to the project, "The producers, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Viacom 18 took a joint decision last month to postpone the release date so that 'Mary Kom' could be further developed into another 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag'. Viacom had unexpectedly massive global success with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag'. They are now looking at 'Mary Kom' as the female counterpart of Milkha Singh's biopic. The global appeal of Mary Kom is much more contemporary than Milkha. While Milkha Singh's biopic was retrospective in structure, 'Mary Kom' is being made even as the real life Mary Kom prepares for the next Olympics."
