Prakash Jha, who is presently hopping from one city to another for the promotion of his upcoming cop-drama Jai GangaaJal, got a pleasant surprise by the students of Pranveer Singh Institute of Technology (PSIT) when he visited their college, during the film’s promotions in Kanpur.
More than 3000 students were present to welcome Jha when he entered the premises along with his film’s actor Manav Kaul. The filmmaker and the actor were felicitated on the stage and some of the college students performed on the songs of Jha’s films.
A source reveals, “It was a massive event at PSIT and what made it even bigger was the support of the students. They cheered for Prakash Jha and Manav and every time the former said something about cops of our country and the youth, they clapped in approval. The crowd went berserk when the film’s trailer was screened for them. In the end, they surprised Jha with a special cake to honour him and to wish him luck for Jai Gangaajal.”
It was a three tier cake which was decorated with film reel, that had pictures of Jha’s superhit films like Gangaajal, Aarakshan, Satyagraha and Raajneeti to name a few. The top tier had Jha’s face printed on it along with wishes for his next Jai GangaaJal. Needless, to say the filmmaker was overwhelmed by their gesture.
Written and directed by Prakash Jha, produced by Prakash Jha Productions and Play Entertainment and co-produced by Milind Dabke, Jai GangaaJal revisits the dusty heartland of Central India and examines the society–police relationship. Starring Priyanka Chopra, the movie is all set to release on 4th March, 2016. Jai GangaaJal is not a prequel or a sequel to Ajay Devgn starrer Gangaajal but is a fresh story.
