After regaling movie aficionados with her act as Manipuri boxing champion M.C. Mary Kom in Bollywood film ‘Mary Kom’, actress Priyanka Chopra is excited about her visit to the northeastern city of Guwahati in Assam.
“Heading to Guwahati…So glad to go to the North Eastern part of the country. Esp after #MaryKom. Looking forward… In more ways than one (sic),” the National Award winning actress tweeted Monday.
Filmmakers, celebrities and fans have come forward to applaud Priyanka for her power-packed act in the film.
‘Mary Kom’ had a limited release in the northeast region, which is made of eight states, also including Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura and Sikkim.
It hit 72 screens in Assam and in two theatres in Meghalaya.
In Manipur, there has been opposition to screening of Hindi films and elsewhere in the North-East there is a lack of operational cinema halls.
