"To learn a new sport and to get her body language, I don't know how I am doing this. I have never played sports in my life. This is my most challenging film," said Priyanka.

Priyanka has been working hard to make herself perfect for the role. She even visited Imphal to meet Kom and the place where the boxing champ practises.

The actress believes that this film will be different."Most of the biopics are of people who are either no more or seniors. But Mary is 32 years old and an international icon. It's a very difficult film. I want to show her personality in the film," she said.

Priyanka's forthcoming films also include "Zanjeer", a remake of megastar Amitabh Bachchan's 1973 film of the same name. This is the third remake of a Big B-starrer that Priyanka features in.

"Mr. Bachchan is my favorite actor. I am glad I have been a part of his remake films. I think it’s a co- incidence," she said. Earlier, she was seen in the remake of Amitabh's "Don" and "Agneepath".
