A first of its kind thriller film which braved the plot of sexual harassment at workplace, Aitraaz won critical acclaim and commercial success. After 14 years, the film’s producer Subhash Ghai plans to tweak the concept and present a sequel.
The Abbas Mustan starrer rode high on performances, suspense and the eventual playout of the court verdict. It was definitely a film way ahead of its time and the lead antagonist Priyanka Chopra stood out and shone among the entire cast.
She bagged several awards for her negative portrayal as a lady who frames her ex-lover in a sexual harassment case for refusing a consensual relationship. Priyanka Chopra is still remembered for her character and exceptional performance.
Subhash Ghai has recently finalized the script for the second part and plans to mount sets by the year end. A source reveals:
Ghai is extremely fond of Priyanka’s talent and dedication, he adds, “She’s so talented and classy, I’m keen to have her in my film again.” The film’s official announcement is awaited.
