Priyanka Chopra packs punches on 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa'
Desi girl Priyanka Chopra is now all set to promote her recent upcoming film, ‘Mary Kom’ with great zeal and vigour. ‘Mary Kom’ is a sports biopic on the real life boxer and champion, MC Mary Kom. Directed by Omung Kumar, the film is expected to hit the theatres on September 5, this year.
Well, as part of the film promotions, the sexy diva made it to one of the most loved dance reality shows on television, ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’ (JDJ). The evening was marked by a lot of dance and drama for the viewers. The show is judged by the trio, namely, Madhuri Dixit, Karan Johar and Remo D’Souza.
PC, dressed in a pure white Giorgio Armani suit and a black tee which had a quote from the American baseball outfielder Babe Ruth, looked as stunning and sexy as ever. To pop the look, she added a pair of strappy Jimmy Choo 'Tebori' sandals and earrings and cuffs from Suhani Pittie with a red mouth and a ponytail finishing it out.
A boxing ring-esque structure was installed on to the stage for Sophie Choudry and her choreo partner Deepak. While they pulled off their act successfully, the actress was then invited onto the dance floor not to show off her moves, but to do pull ups.
The diva talked at length about the making of ‘Mary Kom’. Priyanka even had her knowledge about world's famous boxers tested by anchor and JDJ host Manish Paul with an impromptu quiz.
Chopra revealed her sporty side and packed a few 'punches' (quite literally) with her unmatched physical endurance. The Bollywood star, who reportedly trained six hours every day to acquire the needed physique, was also seen throwing challenges at the contestants.
"Apart from the regular do's like shaking a leg with dhak dhak girl Madhuri to cracking jokes with Karan, PeeCee got sporty and showcased her gymnastic skills on the show. Ms Chopra also assigned a fun task to the judges and contestants to punch on Karan Tacker's stomach, of course, with his abdominal pads on," a source tells us.
Later, she slipped on her dancing shoes to shake a leg on her hit number 'Ram Chahe Leela' from ‘Goliyon Ki Rasleela: Ram-Leela.’
The actress is doing all she can to promote her promising film on all prominent TV shows. The actor is also planning to design t-shirts with quotes from famous boxers. Her unique promotional exercise also includes sharing her 'Lessons from the Ring' on her Twitter profile.
PeeCee..we can’t wait to watch the film!
