“But it’s not all physical, there’s a mental aspect too. The skill is to learn both, in the ring and in life… when you need to guard yourself; looking for the opportunity to strike and to keep moving, which allows you not only to keep your opponent on their toes but also gives you time to plan your next step. Punches come your way every day. But you have to plant your legs firmly and hit back. Be passionate. Be determined. In all that you do.”
—Priyanka Chopra elaborating on “Lessons from the ring” absorbed while enacting the title role, “Mary Kom”.
