Jai Gangaajal is a sequel to director Prakash Jha's 2003 hit film Gangaajal, which starred Ajay Devgn as a cop assigned to put an end to the autocratic rumblings of local politicians and goons in a town in Bihar.
Jai Gangaajal replaces the male protagonist with a female cop named Abha Mathur, who takes on some powerful and influential men in her district. The film has been extensively shot in Madhya Pradesh. (Also Read: Priyanka Chopra Instagrams Photos From the Sets of Gangaajal 2)
