Mumbai: For a crucial sequence in the forthcoming biopic `Mary Kom`, based on the life of Olympic bronze medallist boxer M.C. Mary Kom, Priyanka Chopra went for a bald look. The actress says it was her "responsibility" to do justice to her character.
Priyanka`s bold look can be seen even in the film`s promos.
The versatile actress says she was very excited about it - so much so that she was all around the film`s set in that look.
"Mary has done it (gone bald) in her life. This is an authentic scene in the film and I was very excited about it," Priyanka said here Wednesday at the launch of the film`s trailer.
"First of all I am an actor, so as an actor it is my responsibilty that whatever character I take up I do it with honesty. This is always my personal challenge that I set for myself that how differently I can portray all my characters. So I was not at all hesitant, in fact I was very excited," she added.
Will she ever go bald in real life?
"Never say never. I always surpise myself, so you never know," the 32-year-old said.
Produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and helmed by Omung Kumar, `Mary Kom` will hit the theatres Sep 5.
