In an exclusive chat to radiocity.in, director Prakash Jha spilled the beans on the focus and dedication shown by his leading lady, Priyanka Chopra who plays Inspector Abha Mathur in his next venture, Jai Gangaajal.
He said, ‘I was skeptical in offering Priyanka the role knowing how hectic her schedule is. But she was keen to be a part of this film. Between the shoots of Bajirao Mastani and Quantico, she gave me her dates for a month. But I wrapped her schedule within 27 days. Yet, she complained as to why wasn’t there anything to do for the remaining period. That’s how focused and dedicated is she.’
‘Jai Gangaajal’ also marks the official debut of the director. Jha was earlier seen in a special appearance in 2010’s Raajneeti.
The film is slated to release on Friday, March 4, 2016 and also stars Manav Kaul, Murli Sharma and Ninad Kamat.
