After shooting a fragile wedding scene lately, Priyana Chopra shot for an action scene where she was injured. The actress was doing a boxing scene in the biopic Mary Kom when she got injured under the eye. Director Omung Kumar had to halt the shooting for an hour.
This happened at Dharamsala when a boxer from North East hit her very hard accidentally because of miscalculated moves with timing. The actress immediately fell down, injuring her eye. Thankfully it is not very serious and the lady resumed the shot after an hour.
Make up technician UdayShirale who was working on the prosthetic make up for the actress told PTI – “Priyanka was filming a boxing scenewith an actor from the North-East. She fell on the floor due to the impact. She got the shot spot on, so director Omung Kumar decided to retain it. The cut mark that you will eventually see on screen under the eye is real but we did touch it up with makeup to make it look deeper” he said.
The technician who had fixed a prosthetic piece on her eyes to give her eastern looks confirmed – “The prosthetics haven’t taken me longer than an hour. Mostly, its regular make up and she’d be ready in 20 minutes flat”
Priyanka recently confirmed that Mary Kom was by far the toughest role that she had ever portrayed. The actress tweeted about her experience working for the film, saying that it was tumultuous yet wonderful. PC also stated that Mary Kom is the story of every woman who wants to be larger than what she is meant to be.
Kudos to her dedication!
