Chopra has been training religiously to fit the part of Mary Kom– but if you look at the real Mary Kom, she looks absolutely nothing like Priyanka Chopra. So how will they pull this off? According to sources, they will be creating her look in the post-production stage at Shah Rukh Khan’s VFX Studios, making Priyanka look more oriental by digitally modifying her face.”The film is about a woman boxing champion and there are a number of sequences in the boxing ring. Obviously, there will be a lot of punching on the face and head, so prosthetics may not last. To help Priyanka get that authentic look, technicians will be working on giving her the Northeastern features in the post-production VFX stage,” says  a source according to The Times of India.

Director Omung Kumar hasn’t confirmed exactly which route they are taking for makeup , but they are looking into all options to make this work.
