Filmmaker Prakash Jha is Working on ‘Rajneeti 2’


Panaji: Director Prakash Jha gives a statement that he plans to make a sequel to his 2010 hit political drama “Rajneeti”. Currently he is working on the script. Taking an inspiration from current socio-political scenario in the country, the 63- year old director thought that this is the right time for ‘Rajneeti 2’.

“I am working on ‘Rajneeti’ sequel. It is still nascent but it will happen. There has to be a good time to release. It has not been that long anyway. The film released in 2010. I see there are many exciting changes in our political scenario right now. When the story matures, then we will make it,” Jha told PTI on the sidelines of NFDC Film Bazaar.

“Rajneeti”, starring Ajay Devgn, Nana Patekar, Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Arjun Rampal, Manoj Bajpayee and Naseeruddin Shah, drew parallels to the epic Mahabharata.

The legendary director now gearing up for the release of his next film “Jai Gangaajal”, which is a sequel to Devgn-starrer “Gangaajal” (2003). The film with actress Priyanka Chopra in the lead role of a cop will hit theatres on March 4, 2016.
