I must have blinked because suddenly it’s the third day of the Toronto International Film Festival and this is the first time I’ve had time to write in the blog. I’m also sitting on a day of content that I still need to post, and of course today is also a full day unto itself…

TIFF 14: Priyanka Chopra & Omung Kumar discuss ‘Mary Kom’ biopic
Actress Priyanka Chopra and first-time director Omung Kumar were in Toronto yesterday for the premiere of their film Mary Kom, based on the life of the legendary Indian boxer, whose real name is Mangte Chungneijang. After rushing from the airport to get to her press conference at the Toronto International Film Festival, the two sat down for interviews at the InterContinental Toronto to discuss why they made the film, and how they came to admire the Olympic medallist and five-time World Amateur Boxing champion.
