Actress Priyanka Chopra, who will be seen playing a tough cop in Prakash Jha’s forthcoming project “Gangaajal 2”, says films with female protagonists should not be typecast as “women-centric”.
The 32-year-old actress was in the city along with Jha to shoot the film, whose prequel “Gangaajal” had actor Ajay Devgn essaying role of an IPS officer.
“Why do you stereotype yourself in a particular role.. Nobody talks about film with a male lead in it. No one terms them ‘men-oriented’ films,” she said, when asked about female-centric movies doing well at the box-office lately.
The “Fashion” star, who has an army background as her late father served defence forces as doctor, said she finds a difference in playing role of a police officer and an army personnel.
“There is a lot of difference between the two… My father used to say ‘vardi ki chaal hi alag hoti hai’ (walk in an uniform altogether has a different attitude),” she said. Priyanka, who will be seen as a FBI agent in upcoming American thriller television series “Quantico”, praised the city for its hospitality.
