Actor Priyanka Chopra calls her upcoming police drama Gangaajal 2 an important film because it highlights problems currently plaguing the country, including corruption, land mafia and farmer suicide.

“I am playing a cop. It is a very special film not because of the role. I am playing what Ajay Devgn played in the first part. It is just that the issue has changed. We are highlighting corruption, land mafia, farmer suicide and how people are forced to kill themselves. It is a great story,” Priyanka told media persons.
“Prakash Jha is the best person to tell this phenomenal story. He is very educated. Women cops are not taken seriously... It is a relevant film,” she said.
