It has been seen many times in Bollywood that after the bumper success of a film, many more films are made with the same title. However, the film doesn’t get even an iota of benefit from using the title. The movie failed at the box office and cost the makers crores of rupees. Along with this, the careers of film stars also started to doubt. A similar incident was also seen with Priyanka Chopra, when one of her films was released in the name of Ajay Devgan’s film.
New Delhi. Priyanka Chopra may not be seen much in Bollywood films these days, but once upon a time her name was very popular in Bollywood. Priyanka is the number-1 actress in Bollywood. Directors are eager to make films with him. However, his career was in jeopardy when he appeared before the audience as a police officer in a film, copying Ajay Devgan’s style. The audience really rejected his film. His film proved to be a huge flop at the box office.
Here we are talking about director Prakash Jha’s film ‘Jai Gangajal’. This film came in 2016. In this film, Priyanka Chopra was seen in the role of a female IPS officer. He plays the role of IPS officer Abha Mathur. In this film, Prakash Jha also worked as an actor for the first time. However, this film disappointed the audience a lot.

But later it was changed to ‘Jai Gangajal’. Let us tell you that ‘Gangajal’ is also directed by Prakash Jha. Ajay Devgn and Gracy Singh are paired together for the first time in the film.
Ajay won the hearts of the audience by playing an IPS officer in the film.
