National Award winning actress Priyanka Chopra Wednesday met President Pranab Mukherjee and his wife at the Rashtrapati Bhavan here ahead of the release of her forthcoming film ‘Mary Kom’.
“Always incredible to be at the Rashtrapati Bhawan. A big thank you to the ever gracious Pranabda and Suvrama for having me at their home,” the 32-year-old actress posted on her Twitter page Wednesday, before taking off on a flight to Toronto.
Priyanka has been in the capital for a two-day promotion of ‘Mary Kom’, a biopic on M.C. Mary Kom, a five-time boxing champion who has made the country proud with her laurels.
The movie is set to have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival Thursday.
Directed by first-timer Omung Kumar and co-produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Viacom18 Motion Pictures, ‘Mary Kom’ is slated to release worldwide Friday.
