The acting bug has bitten filmmaker Prakash Jha! After being lauded by the audience for his debut as an actor in “Jai Gangaajal”, he says he will be seen more on the silver screen.
Jha said that with all the appreciation that has come his way for portraying B.N. Singh, a corrupt police officer in “Jai Gangaajal”, he feels “encouraged” to face the cameras again.
“I am encouraged and humbled. All I can say is that it is amazing the way the people have reacted… I feel really humbled,” Jha told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
Would he be seen on the silver screen again?
“That is obvious. I mean, of course this encouragment will help me… What do you think should I be seen or not? You will see more,” he said in an affirmative tone.
Asked if “Jai Gangaajal”, which stars Priyanka Chopra as a tough police officer, received the kind of response he expected, Jha said: “I don’t have to tell you the audience has loved it. They are loving the film. It is doing steady business because of word of mouth.
“Otherwise a female-oriented film doesn’t take a huge kind of opening but it has had a decent opening… So it is doing well.”
