John Abraham and Divya Khosla Kumar ready to shoot
“On the first day we will shoot only with the lead pair, but later there will be other actors like Harsh Chhabra, Gautami Kapoor, Shaad Randhawa, Anup Soni and Sahil Vaid joining in.” Praising the Uttar Pradesh government, director Milap Zaveri says, “We will be shooting all over Lucknow, which includes heritage structures like palaces and colleges. Some of the live locations will be completely closed, so the crowd will not be able to enter and only our cast and crew will be present at the location.” He further said that action scenes will also be shot on the streets of Lucknow. The director praises John for agreeing to shoot in these difficult times.
Safety is being taken care of in shooting
Producer Bhushan Kumar is familiar with the challenge and is confident that strict security and adherence to rules will ensure a safe shooting environment. “It will be scary for the crew working on the live location, but it is also important to give our viewers some entertainment during this pandemic. We promise that Satyamev Jayate 2 will be even better than its original. When we decide to take a franchise forward, we have to be ready with big stories and characters. Milap has worked very hard on the action sequences with John during the lockdown.”
Producer Nikkhil Advani, who was present with Milap in Lucknow, claims that since Milap developed the theme, he realized that Lucknow would be a suitable setting and set the story there. Before the coronavirus pandemic, SMJ 2 was based out of Mumbai. John’s roots in the film are from Varanasi and Milap believes that the transition will give the film a pan-India feel, which will appeal to the audience in the hinterland as well. We will be shooting for a few days at a studio in Mumbai early next year, before we wrap up the shooting of the film.
Satyamev Jayate 2, produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar (T-Series), Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani, Nikkhil Advani (ME Entertainment), will release on 12 May 2021 next year.
