Priyanka Chopra plays the leading role of a police officer in Jai Gangaajal.

“It’s a relevant film, which talks about many things, including feminism, why farmers commit suicide, corruption in the system, etc. It’s also about a woman, who fights corruption,” she says.

“Don’t look at me as a man or a woman; just look at me as a person in a police uniform.’ And I think that’s what feminism stands for — equality,” says Priyanka, adding that she is “proud” of the film. “I play a police officer in it. My mother was in the army, and she used to wear a uniform.

I was recently going through those old photos. I am very excited about it,” she adds.

Ask Priyanka what she looks for while choosing a film, and she says, “I’m very instinctive about the roles I do, which is why, sometimes, I get them right, and sometimes I don’t. There has to be a character with a voice. That has always been important to me.” She adds, “I’m grateful that film-makers come to me with amazing roles. I’ve been fortunate to play strong female characters in my films.”

Jai Gangaajal is not a perfect film by any means. It’s stretches far too much and the villains are caricatures of the typical North Indian goons and politicians we’ve seen in many movies. But, it has Priyanka Chopra, playing the desi Alex Parrish and a surprisingly competent Prakash Jha starring in it and that somewhat makes Jai Gangajal pretty watchable.
