Mumbai: She plays a tough cop in her next “Jai Gangaajal” but actress Priyanka Chopra says it is megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who is the inspiration behind her angry young woman avatar in the film.
The 33-year-old Bollywood diva plays a deglam role of the first woman SP of Bankepur district, dominated by corrupt politician and his side kicks, in filmmaker Prakash Jha’s “Jai Gangaajal”.
Heaping praise on the film’s trailer, Bachchan, who rose to stardom with his ‘angry young man’ roles in films like “Zanjeer”, “Trishul” and “Deewar”, tweeted, “Prakash Jha & Priyanka, dynamic… ‘Wah Bhaiya kya baat hai… Ab toh humlogan pe bhaari pad gaye ho’!”
Priyanka replied to him by writing, “Haha… Thank you so much sir.. The Inspiration of an angry young woman is all you. @prakashjha27 @SrBachchan.”
“Jai Gangaajal” releases on March 4, 2016.
