Director Milap Zaveri and actor John Abraham are all set to team up for the second time for the sequel to 2018 release Satyameva Jayate. Titled Satyameva Jayate 2, the movie will mark the big-screen comeback of actress Divya Khosla Kumar.
The movie was supposed to start rolling earlier this year and was slated to hit the big screens on 2nd Oct 2020. However, due to the pandemic, the shooting was postponed and now, the film is all set to go on the floors tomorrow in Lucknow.
While talking to Mumbai Mirror, director Milap Zaveri stated, “On the first day, we will shoot only with the lead pair, but subsequently, other actors like Harsh Chhaya, Gautami Kapoor, Shaad Randhawa, Anup Soni, and Sahil Vaid will join in. We will be shooting across Lucknow, including at heritage structures like palaces and colleges. Some of the live locations will be completely sealed off, so crowd gazers cannot sneak in. Only our cast and crew will be present on the spot.”
Shooting in the pandemic that too on the real locations won’t be easy for the team, however, producer Bhushan Kumar is confident that with strict SoPs it will be a safe shooting environment.
The producer told the tabloid, “It will be scary for the crew at live locations, but it is important to give our audience some entertainment during this pandemic. When we decide to take a franchise forward, we have to be ready with larger-than-life stories and characters. This script is a notch higher and Milap has worked rigorously on the action scenes with John during the lockdown.”
