Directed by Omung Kumar, the film on the Olympic bronze medallist boxer M.C. Mary Kom sees Priyanka in the title role. It is scheduled for a Sep 5 release.

Talking about his visibility in the movie, Darshan Kumar said: "I don't think I will be overshadowed by Priyanka Chopra." "Whatever Mary Kom has achieved in her life, her husband has a huge contribution in that. Her husband's journey is equally important. I am more than happy to share the screen space with the National Award winning actress Priyanka Chopra," he added.

Darshan, a Delhiite, didn't have any film background, but his passion for acting spurred him on to take the plunge. He said: "I don't have any filmy connection or any filmy backup. My parents are eagerly waiting to see me on the screen. I have done theatre and learned acting under Naseeruddin Shah's guidance."
