Omung Kumar who has directed the biopic of the Olympic boxer Mary Kom is looking forward to the release of ‘Mary Kom’. He says that he has tried to keep the story real despite taking creative liberty to depict the boxing champion’s life story on celluloid.
Omung says, “It wasn’t so difficult to replicate Mary because she is an open book… We followed her and replicated her life exactly as she has said. She has seen the film. I think creative liberty is not a bad thing… It is about how we take the scene ahead. She (Mary) has seen it and loved it”.
Priyanka who essays the role of Mary in the film said that the makers have portrayed several incidents that happened to Mary exactly the way she narrated them to the writers. The film is a close depiction of her life.
The film will release on September 5.
