Mary Kom witnessed an impressive opening and the film’s lead actress Priyanka Chopra doesn’t want the biopic to be pitted against biggies. She says that “our film is already successful”, and hopes “it sets an example that even female centric films can do well”.
When asked if she feels the film will enter the Rs100 crore club, she said: “Please! Don’t put such pressure on us. Ours is a small film and don’t compare us with the big boys.”
“Our film is already successful and I only hope that it sets an example that even female centric films can do well. I don’t know what our destiny is, but I don’t want to put such pressure on our film,” said the actress who has won appreciation from all quarters for etching out the role of boxing champion M.C. Mary Kom convincingly on the big screen.
According to Priyanka, the film has “opened well and that is a huge relief for me. Now let’s see how long does it sustain in the second week.”
The actress, who has turned producer with Madamji, which is being directed by Madhur Bhandarkar, says she is yet to understand the number game, but hopes to learn on the job.
She said: “I am a creative person and I get confused with the number game. I have a very strong team. Eventually when you make a film, it will be a learning experience.”
Meanwhile, Mary Kom is riding ahead on positive word of mouth, and the makers are confident that since the English language Bollywood entertainer Finding Fanny is a niche offering it may not eat up the box office share of Mary Kom.
