Omong Kumar has made of movie of absolute fine quality, to project a national star of our times Mary Kom the great. It is a big boost for people in the North east to watch their star in the movie halls.
However there were many alternatives to project Mary kom with a NorthEastern star. Many were called for audition and some of them even had all the qualities required. Real News of india has already published news about the selection process for Mary Kom. Manipur has rejected the offer for the pre launch to happen in Manipur mainly due to this reason.
At a time when Hollywood has trust and confidence with Oriental faces why cannot Bollywood try also experiment new tastes and looks? The Indian audience has become much more global in the sense they do posses a certain quality. When Helen an actor from Burma could make the audience dance why not the young talented, gorgeous North eastern girls of today?
In spite of this disappointment for the North Eastern there is a bit of a relief to see the senior veteran Nepali actor Sunil Thapa as the coach to Priyanka. Sunil Thapa has acted in “Ek Duje ke liye” as the villan in Kamal Hasan’s film. Also a lot of supporting actors are from the North east.
