As she says she was hesitant to take on the role of Mary Kom at first because she was a living, breathing icon who paved the way for so many female athletes. Plus, she doesn’t resemble her in the least. As she didn’t look alike physically because she is from the northeast of India and she was being from the north. The part should have probably gone to someone from the northeast, in retrospect.
