Guwahati: Six-time world boxing champion MC Mary Kom is now packing a punch off the ring. The Manipuri pugilist is winning hearts by making a special appearance in a recently-released music video titled Unstoppable by pop star Ananya Birla.
As the title of the song suggests, the video is all about celebrating women. It features 14 ‘trailblazing’ women on one single platform for the first time. Besides Mary Kom, the other women who feature in the song are Neerja Birla, Aparna Popat, Sania Mirza, Juhi Chawla, Pooja Hegde, Gabriella Demetriades, Kanika Kapoor, Anusha Dandekar, Sukriti Kakar, Karishma Chavan, Malini Agarwal and Falguni Peacock.
The video hails women power in all its capacity and goes on to call out a slew of gender-based tags, expressions and double standards used to stereotype men and women in India.
After it was posted on Ananya’s YouTube channel on April 12, ‘Unstoppable’ has already garnered over 64 lakh views across the globe and counting. The 24-year-old singer, songwriter and entrepreneur is the daughter of Kumar Mangalam Birla, who is the chairman of the Aditya Birla Group, one of the largest conglomerate corporations in India.
