Because of this ban, cinema houses in the state may not screen a biopic on boxer MC Mary Kom, which is set be released in  theaters across the country on September 5.

The film starring Priyanka Chopra traces Mary's life from her humble roots to her achieving several world titles.

Produced by well known Bollywood director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the film is directed by Omung Kumar.

Film enthusiasts in Manipur want the film to be screened in the state. Mary Kom, who also runs a boxing academy in Manipur, is an inspiration for budding sportspersons in the state.

They wish to watch the biopic on the boxing legend.

MC Mary Kom said, “My movie is releasing on September 5. I hope that more people will be inspired by the movie.”
