Mumbai: The makers of Priyanka Chopra's 'Jai Gangaajal' have released their first song titled 'Maya Thagni'. The number composed by the celebrated duo of Salim-Sulaiman perfectly blend with Pravesh Mallick’s rustic and raw vocals.
The video features gripping action sequences and hints at the bigger dangers lurking ahead. At the launch of the song, Director Prakash Jha said, "Priyanka Chopra has done all the action by herself. And the action in our films is very realistic, and realistic is much more difficult... She was completely fit, the muscles she built for 'Mary Kom' benefited us."
He further added, "How we prepared her, taught her to salute, made her wear khaki and made her IPS officer Abha Mathur, benefited 'Quantico'. She is doing good work because of that, on the basis of our training. And now she is doing 'Baywatch'."
Priyanka is currently in the US, where her recent announcement with Dwayne Johnson about her being a part of the 'Baywatch' film created a frenzy.
However, Prakash denied that her professional commitments in the US were hindering promotions of 'Jai Gangaajal'.
He said, "She is all the time promoting. Today also, she gave an interview through Skype. She is tweeting all the time, what else is promotion? She has done print and media interviews for music channels, news channels even while sitting there. What would she have done if she was here? We are happy that she has been offered the kind of job that is the dream for everyone, so we are with her dreams."
The film is slated to release on March 4.
