Bajirao Mastaniactress Priyanka Chopra revealed that her preparation for the upcoming cop drama flick, “Jai Gangaajal” helped her a great deal to portray the character of an FBI agent in her international series, “Quantico”.

“Due to the kind of skill and work that was required for “Jai Gangaajal”, I was ready for my role in ‘Quantico’. In fact, ‘Quantico’ became easier because I was doing the film,” said Priyanka at the film’s trailer launch.

Priyanka plays the role of a police officer called Aabha Mathur in “Jai Gangaajal” in the movie she is seen using guns and smashing baddies with ‘lathis’ while in the international series she plays the role of an FBI officer Alex Parrish.


Film director, Prakash Jha who also essays the role of a cop in “Jai Gangaajal”, says: “We trained Aabha Mathur in Bhopal and see how she is showcasing her talent in ‘Quantico’!”

During her growing up years, Priyanka lived in places like Lucknow and Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh. She says, “I grew up in UP, so this role was a cakewalk for me.”

“Jai Gangaajal” was “the quickest film of her career”, at the same time she was juggling between the two big budgeted projects viz. “Bajirao Mastani” and “Quantico”, she said.

Prakash Jha further added: “As Priyanka was too busy in her schedule with ‘Bajirao’ and ‘Quantico’, we had to do some quick work in her given schedule from the time she managed between the two.”

The film is releasing on March 4 2016, and its music has been composed by Salim-Sulaiman.
