Priyanka Chopra sings in MARY KOM

Everybody knows that actress Priyanka Chopra sings pretty well, courtesy her solo international release. In fact, she is one of the young actresses whose footsteps into singing are now being followed by the likes of Shraddha Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. And now, the buzz is that the actress-singer has sung a lullaby in her forthcoming film ‘Mary Kom’, a biopic on the five-time World Champion boxer.

On being asked if she would lend her voice in her films too, Priyanka replied, “I have sung a lori (lullaby) in the film, which comes in the important part of the film. It’s a very intimate conversation between the mother and child and yes, it was fun. It has a good tune.”

Directed by Omung Kumar, the film is said to have got ample support from Mary Kom during the making of the movie. When a comparison was made between Bollywood sports movies like ‘Paan Singh Tomar’, ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ and ‘Mary Kom’, Priyanka begged to differ. She said, “This is the first film on a female athlete and it is very disrespectful to say it’s a trend.”

Meanwhile, with a span of 24 hours of its launch ‘Mary Kom’ trailer has got 711,516 hits! What’s more, the trailer has left the audiences amazed including the B-town crowd.

Here’s what some celebs had tweeted after watching the trailer:
