Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to announce the project’s commencement. The film also stars Juhi Chawla and television personality Madhu Malti in pivotal roles. The shooting of the film kicked-off in Patiala on Wednesday.

I just came back from a meeting with Anil and he is like a kid, extremely excited about his role. His character sports a look that hasn’t been seen on him in a long time. We will be shooting at a family house in Patiala, which is the perfect setting for the film. I am shooting entirely at real locations as I want the film to develop as organically as possible. We can’t wait to start rolling now. Anil is also really looking forward to the outing. While I have all his costumes in place, he insisted on bringing his own stuff too. Vinod (Vidhu Vinod Chopra) is busy with his next directorial at the moment, but I talk to him all the time. He is on top of everything and knows what is happening here ” said Shelly, according to a Mid-Day report.

Sonam is expected to join the team for shooting her part towards the end of January and Chawla will reportedly join in the first week of February.

Rajkumar Rao will be playing Sonam’s love interest in the film. Rao is currently busy shooting for Stree – a horror comedy with Shraddha Kapoor.

Watch: Move over Kashibai, Priyanka Chopra kicks a** in ‘Jai Gangaajal’ trailer

For all those of you who only spoke about Priyanka Chopra’s accent when it came to Quantico, the trailer of Prakash Jha’s Jai Gangaajal is out, and you may have to eat your words.

Just when we thought Chopra couldn’t do anything else this year to cement her position in the film industry, this trailer made us rethink that. Playing a tough cop in this sequel to Jha’s Gangaajal starring Ajay Devgn, perhaps the biggest compliment one can give Chopra is the fact that Devgn isn’t missed.

In a completely de-glam avatar, and with crisp, impactful Hindi, Priyanka Chopra owns every frame in Jai Gangaajal. The film explores the relationship between society and police force, and is set in central India. It makes for an interesting premise given the current bureaucratic issues we have had as a nation.

Perhaps one of the dialogues from the film summarises our feelings towards Priyanka Chopra best, “Khakee ka rang sahi ho to, usse aurat pehne ya mard; tum jaiso ko chutki me aukaat dikha deti hai” (If the color of khakhi is right, it doesn’t matter whether a man wears it or a woman.)
