Ajay Devgn gave a stellar performance as a cop, who gets transferred to an area that is notorious for its crime rate, in the 2003 film, Gangaajal. Now, after more than a decade, the Prakash Jha directorial is set to get a sequel. However, this time, Ajay will not play the central character in the film. Rumours are rife that Priyanka Chopra has been roped in to essay the lead role in the sequel."Prakash Jha is known for making socio-political films and for this one, he wanted a female protagonist, unlike in the original. Priyanka Chopra has a role similar to the one Ajay had in Gangaajal," says a source.
