If they (Hollywood) have Hilary Swank, we have Priyanka. She is a great talent and adds spark to her performance. As an actress I think she is in the league of Nutanji and Waheedaji,” Bhansali told reporters at the Mary Kom trailer Launch.

Mary Kom is Bhansali’s film and it is inspired by Kom’s struggle to become a boxer and has been directed by Omung Kumar.

Omung told me about making film on Mary Kom around two years back, and I immediately said yes. There was no lengthy meetings or discussions,” he said.
