PANAJI -- Filmmaker Prakash Jha says that plans of making a sequel to his 2010 hit political drama Rajneeti are on and he is currently working on the script.

The 63-year-old director will take inspiration from the current socio-political scenario in the country as he finds it interesting.

"I am working on Rajneeti sequel. It is still nascent but it will happen. There has to be a good time to release. It has not been that long anyway. The film released in 2010. I see there are many exciting changes in our political scenario right now. When the story matures, then we will make it," Jha told on the sidelines of National Film Development Corporation (NFDC) Film Bazaar.

Rajneeti, starring Ajay Devgn, Nana Patekar, Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Arjun Rampal, Manoj Bajpayee and Naseeruddin Shah, drew parallels to the epic Mahabharata.

Jha now is now gearing up for the release of his next film Jai Gangaajal, which is a sequel to Devgn-starrer Gangaajal (2003).

The film with actress Priyanka Chopra in the lead role of a cop will hit theatres on 4 March, 2016.
