Piggy Chops 'channeled' grief of father's death into 'Mary Kom' movie

Priyanka-ChopraWashington, Sept 5 : Priyanka Chopra has revealed that she "channeled" all her grief over her father's death due to cancer in her movie 'Mary Kom'.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the 32-year-old actress said that when her father was really ill she was training for the movie because she had to develop a body like a boxer.

The former Miss World added that during the shooting, she used to cry every night after she got back home and would break down, but every morning she would wake up and say to herself that she could do it.

Chopra, who played an athlete rising from bare-knuckled street fights to Olympic glory in 'Mary Kom', said that she should have taken six months off to mourn her grief.

Chopra started filming ' Mary Kom' about four days after she lost her father. (ANI)
