Not sure if Katrina will be part of 'Rajneeti 2': Prakash Jha

Filmmaker Prakash Jha says he is uncertain if Bollywood star Katrina Kaif will be a part of his forthcoming film "Rajneeti 2".

Jha said even though he would want the "Fitoor" actress to feature in the film, nothing is confirmed yet as the movie is in its initial stage.

"Katrina is part of Rajneeti but I don't know if the new story whether will suit her, whether she will be a part of it or if she wants to do it. Things are uncertain. We will definitely want her to be. But at the same time, if the character becomes completely different or something like that then...," Jha told PTI.

The political-thriller-drama "Raajneeti", released in 2010, starred Katrina in a pivotal role apart from an ensemble of Ajay Devgn, Nana Patekar, Ranbir Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Manoj Bajpayee and Naseeruddin Shah.

The "Gangaajal" director said he is keen to revisit the film as the politics in the country today has become "interesting."

"I am becoming interested in revisiting 'Rajneeti' because suddenly the politics in the country has become very interesting. So I am working on the structure. I don't really know if it will be from where we left the last story or if it'll be a new story," he said.

"Basically, Rajneeti is a big film that I am thinking in terms of working again. In between there are a couple of scripts which we've been working on which are not socio-political," he added.

When asked if the movie will be a sequel to "Rajneeti", Jha said, "I don't know whether it'll be a sequel. It'll be a sequel if I take the story (forward) from where I left it or if I have the same characters, something like that.

"It may be kind of slightly different. I am not sure about it but it (the film) will be Rajneeti."

The filmmaker is currently ready with his next directorial venture "Jai Gangaajal" starring Priyanka Chopra. The film releases on March 4.
