The Indian Cultural Centre will host a free screening of the Indian biographical sports film Mary Kom at its 67 New Haven, Bel Air, Georgetown location at 4.30 pm today.

The 2014 film is directed by Omung Kumar and produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. It stars Priyanka Chopra in the lead role of the eponymous boxer, with Darshan Kumar and Sunil Thapa in supporting roles of her husband and mentor, respectively.

Mary Kom depicts Kom’s journey of becoming a boxer to her victory at the 2008 World Boxing Championships in Ningbo. The film marks the Hindi playback singing debut of Priyanka Chopra, who provided her vocals for a song named “Chaoro” (a lullaby). Chopra underwent extensive physical training for three months to attain a muscular physique and learned Kom’s distinct boxing style. The film won the National Film Award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment and Best Actress for Priyanka Chopra.
