Mumbai — Priyanka Chopra-starrer “Mary Kom,” a biopic on Indian boxing champion Mary Kom, has finally got a “U” certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification.

The sports drama, which is based on the life of the Olympic medal winner, was earlier issued a “U/A” certificate by the board.

"Awesome! ‘U’ certificate! Family movie #MaryKom," Chopra posted on Twitter.

Earlier, makers were reportedly disappointed with the Censor Board’s previous decision. But now they are happy as the film will have a wider audience.

"‘Mary Kom’  gets a ‘U’ certificate. More reach to us," director Omung Kumar tweeted.

“Mary Kom” is scheduled to release Sept. 5 and is produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali in collaboration with Viacom 18.

The film narrates the struggle of a Manipuri female boxer, who goes on to become a five-time World Amateur Boxing champion.
