Priyanka Chopra in ‘Jai Gangajal’ inspires Goan women cops

Panaji, March 10 (IANS) Actor Priyanka Chopra may have made it big internationally as an FBI sleuth in television serial ‘Quantico’, but for Goa policewomen, it is her role as spunky cop Abha Mathur in ‘Jai Gangajal’ that has captured their imagination.

Speaking to reporters after attending a free screening of Prakash Jha’s latest film ‘Jai Gangajal’, where Chopra plays a feisty cop, a Superintendent of Police in the badlands of North India, policewomen in Goa were both enamoured and inspired by the sense of leadership displayed by the fictional SP Mathur.

“Women are empowered from within. Whether the system supports or not, at the end women will decide the course of our lives,” Superintendent of Police (Anti-Terror Squad) Priyanka Kashyap said, after the film screening organised in a cinema hall in the state capital.

“Women in leadership roles bring in healthy changes to the system and bring the much required change that the ‘system’ needs.”

The special screening for women police personnel was organiSed by the Panaji Riviera chapter of the Rotary club.

Police Sub Inspector Reema Naik, who also attended the ‘Jai Gangajal’ screening said that the film was an inspiration for a police-woman like her.

“We have to stick to the truth and stand ground. The worst that will happen is that you will be transferred, but that is better than going against your conscience,” she told reporters.
