Mumbai: Actress Priyanka Chopra said that her role in Prakash Jha's Jai Gangaajal helped her to portray her character of an FBI agent in Quantico.

"Due to the kind of skill and work that was required for Jai Gangaajal, I was ready for my role in Quantico. In fact, Quantico became easier because I was doing the film," said Priyanka.

Priyanka plays the role of a police officer in Jai Gangaajal. In Quantico, Priyanka plays the lead character of Alex Parrish, who becomes the FBI's prime suspect following a terrorist attack.

Mr Jha, who also plays a police officer in Jai Gangaajal, said: "We trained Aabha Mathur (Priyanka's character) in Bhopal and see how she is showcasing her talent in Quantico." (Also Read: Jai Gangaajal Trailer: Priyanka Chopra is Impressive)

"I grew up in Uttar Pradesh. So, this role was easy for me. Jai Gangaajal was the quickest film in my career. I was juggling between two big budget projects - Bajirao Mastani and Quantico at the same time," said Priyanka.

"As Priyanka was too busy with her schedule for Bajirao Mastani and Quantico, we had to do some quick work in her given schedule from the time she managed between the two," added Mr Jha.

Jai Gangaajal is scheduled to release on March 4, 2016.
