Mumbai: Lucknow is all set to host the cast and crew of John Abraham and Divya Khosla Kumar starrer Satyamev Jayate 2.

Sharing the update filmmaker Milap Zaveri praised the Uttar Pradesh’s government and said that, “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.”

He shares that even action scenes will be shot on the streets of Lucknow and he has taken his leading man through all the locations virtually. The director lauds John for agreeing to shoot in these tough times. Producer Bhushan Kumar acknowledges the challenge but is confident stringent SoPs will create a safe shooting environment. “It will be scary for the crew at live locations, but it is important to give our audience some entertainment during this pandemic.”

Promising that Part 2 will be bigger and better than the 2018 original. “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.”

Producer Nikkhil Advani, who was with Milap in Lucknow, asserts that since Milap has developed the subject, he realized that Lucknow would be an apt setting and relocated the story there. Before coronavirus struck, SMJ 2 was based in Mumbai. His director confides that John’s roots in the film are in Varanasi and believes that the transition will give the film a pan-India feel, appealing even to viewers in the interiors. They will also be shooting for a few days at a Mumbai studio early next year before calling it a wrap.
