Prakash Jha gets irritated with questions on ‘Jai Gangaajal’ promotions, Priyanka

Mumbai, March 4 (IANS) Filmmaker Prakash Jha got annoyed when asked about the “unsatisfactory” promotions of his upcoming film, “Jai Gangaajal”, due to the “absence” of the lead star, Priyanka Chopra.

Jha on Thursday held a special screening of his film for some IPS officers, considering Priyanka’s IPS officer role in the film. While interacting with the press at the event, a journalist asked, “The film has not done the kind of promotions it should have, so are you nervous, with the release of the film approaching?”

Despite Priyanka being busy with her international assignments, Jha and the other cast members held interviews with journalists, and even launched a couple of songs. Perhaps that is the reason Jha got irked and replied, “Who told you promotions haven’t been done?”

When the journalist spoke about the absence of lead star Priyanka Chopra for the promotions, Jha said, “So say that Priyanka Chopra hasn’t come. But we have done promotions.”

When some media persons requested him to look into the camera, he said, “Ask the questions properly, only then I will look there. I haven’t come here to defend it.”

Except for the trailer launch of “Jai Gangaajal”, lead actor of the film, Priyanka Chopra was not seen for any of the events related to the film. She is currently in the US, shooting for the second season of her show, “Quantico” and her Hollywood debut, “Baywatch”.

But the last time Jha was asked about Priyanka’s absence, he had emphasised that she was promoting the film through Skype, with some publications.

“Jai Gangaajal” is releasing on Friday.
