Rani Mukherjee was first choice for biopic Mary Kom

Rani MukherjeeBollywood actress Rani Mukherjee lost out an opportunity to essay the character of Mary Kom in her biopic by laying down not reasonable conditions. It is said that Sanjay Leela Bhansali was wanting to cast his favorite actress Rani Mukherji as Mary Kom in the athlete’s biopic.

However, Rani Mukherjee, who’s had bad experiences in the past along with new directors Anurag Singh in Dil Bole Hadippa and Sachin Kundalkar in Aiyya, was a little nervous to get directed by newbie Omang Kumar. Hence, when Omang came to Rani with the offer to do Mary Kom, Rani Mukherjee recommended that Omang first shoot a couple of scenes with her. If she liked them she would do the rest of the movie.

However, this idea annoyed Omang who then rapidly signed Priyanka Chopra for the character. Insiders claim that no actor can do a test-run with a director. Hence, it was because of unreasonable points that Rani lost out such a meaty character to Priyanka.
