Mumbai: Excited about making a movie on Indian woman boxing champion Mary Kom, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali says it is a rare experiment that he is taking up.
"It is an inspiring story that touched my heart. Not many films are based on biopics of living people, so this is a rare experiment. I am proud that I am part of this film," Bhansali, who is producing the film, said.
Mangte Chungneijang Mary Kom, the ace boxer who is lauded as a national hero after winning the London Olympic bronze, has become a source of inspiration for Bhansali to make a movie based on her.
