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.
