Dignity & disparity

2011 Dubai International Film Festival - PortraitsPriyanka Chopra says that biopics on sports stars make them a household name, therefore, it is unfair to compare the monetary benefits.

Priyanka has played boxing champion M.C. Mary Kom in Mary Kom. Now a section of people are talking about the disparity between the incomes of Priyanka and Mary Kom.
Upset with the comparisons, Priyanka said: “It is very tragic that everybody watching the film had no idea who Mary Kom was and that she was a five-time world champion before we announced the film.

“So you should look at the fact that a film like this or Paan Singh Tomar or Bhaag Milkha Bhaag pick up icons and put them on a stage of the entire nation where today Mary being a relevant sports star, is getting the dignity she deserves,” the 31-year-old said.

“One of the biggest reasons why this film was made and why is it so close to me is because Mary is a woman, and her career almost got over because she decided to get married and have children. Why should that happen to women?” Priyanka said.
