Sanjay Leela Bhansali compares Priyanka Chopra to Hillary Swank!

News Helpline | July, 23 2014

Well, it looks like that, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, is quite excited with his productional venture with Priyanka Chopra starrer, Mary Kom, the excitement has led to the this director-producer to led the direct comparisons of Priyanka Chopra with Hollywood Actress Hillary Swank.

Well, the director did have a reason for this comparison, In the 2004 Hollywood hit, Million Dollar Baby is about an amateur determined woman who works with a hardened boxing trainer to become a professional. Mary Kom too traces the journey of Indian boxer Mary's phenomenal rise to the pinnacle of glory.

While Hillary essayed the lead role in this Oscar winning movie, it's Priyanka Chopra who finally clinched the dream role of playing the dream role of India's celebrated female boxer.

Hillary's scintillating performance in this Oscar winning movie clinched her a plethora of accolades and appreciation. Even though both movies are based on boxing, we feel the cultural difference would make Mary Kom radically different from Million Dollar Baby. Whether Priyanka would be able to match or perhaps even upstage Hillary remains to be seen.

Sanjay however couldn't stop praising Priyanka. Comparing her to yesteryear actresses Nutan and Waheeda Rehman, Sanjay said, " Priyanka is the only actress who does roles that Nutan and Waheeda Rahman used to do."

Well, that a quite a high comparisons, and Priyanka Chopra deserves it!
