Priyanka Chopra said, "This is my quickest film ever. I was playing a tough character but it was still important for me to also be feminine. Abha celebrates womanhood yet she is authoritative. I enjoyed playing her as she is very classy, graceful and dignified. It's a very relevant and important film."

Manav Kaul plays the bad-guy antagonist of the film. Murli Sharma, Ninad Kamat, Vega Tamotia and Ayush Khedekar portray the other important characters.

True to Prakash Jha's track record of issue-based sociopolitical drama, Jai Gangaajal carries the legacy of the last film of the Bihar Trilogy - Gangaajal (2013) - further.

The film focuses on criminal - politician - land mafia nexus, the abnormal rate of farmer suicides and the challenges of a female police officer in the hinterlands of dusty wild central plains of India.

Prakash Jha said, "In a well-oiled system of the powerful, a female cop is brought in, as she is thought to be weak, pliable and easy to manipulate. However, things become difficult for them, when she comes into a confrontational mode. The only person who came to my mind while I was writing the unique character of Abha Mathur was Priyanka."
