Priyanka Chopra, Amitabh Bachchan and others hail 'magnificent' Mary Kom

M.C. Mary Kom's latest victory, which has led her to become the first woman boxer to claim six World Championship gold medals, is a testimony to women power and an example of how age and motherhood have not stopped her from chasing her dreams, said Indian film fraternity members, hailing the "magnificent" athlete's feat. Mary Kom on Saturday outclassed Ukraine's Hanna Okhota by a unanimous 5:0 verdict at the 10th AIBA women's boxing World Championships at the K.D. Jadhav indoor hall here on Saturday.

The star boxer, whose life had inspired the movie "Mary Kom" -- starring Priyanka Chopra -- courted congratulations galore from the actress, as well as celebrated names like Amitabh Bachchan, S.S. Rajamouli and Prosenjit Chatterjee.
