Priyanka Chopra has won hearts across the globe by essaying the role of smart and agile, FBI Agent Alex Parrish in American TV show Quantico however, not many know that playing a badass cop in Prakash Jha’s Jai Gangaajal, helped her immensely to prepare for her character in ABC’s crime-thriller.
Priyanka shot for Jai Gangaajal right before she started working on Quantico and playing SP Abha Mathur in the movie, helped her get into the skin of her character Alex Parrish.
At the film’s trailer launch, Prakash Jha jokingly said, “Priyanka Chopra has become much in demand in the US and the FBI has also recruited her. They contacted me and told me to train her for the role so, we gave her a crash course (laughs) and look how proud she has made us all.”
Priyanka agreed with him and added, “He is actually right. Because I did this film right before Quantico, it prepared me to play an FBI trainee and it became easier for me to work on that show. I can very happily say that I have been trained by the IPS for Quantico.”
Written and directed by Prakash Jha, produced by Prakash Jha Productions and Play Entertainment and co-produced by Milind Dabke, Jai Gangaajal revisits the dusty heartland of Central India and examines the society–police relationship. Starring Priyanka Chopra, the movie is all set to release on 4th March, 2016. Jai Gangaajal is not a prequel or a sequel to Ajay Devgn starrer Gangaajal but is a fresh story.
