The actor takes on not one, but three roles in the movie that releases this week
When Satyameva Jayate 2 opens in theatres this week, audiences will get to see John Abraham in a special treat, as the actor’s got a triple role in the sequel. Taking on three roles in the vigilante actioner Satyameva Jayate 2, though, came with its fair share of challenges, says the actor, as the film sees him continue his fight against corruption; picking up from where he left in the original.
Speaking about doing multiple roles in the film, John, in a recent interaction with PTI, said that it was quite daunting. Apart from his character from the original, John gets two more here, for which he not only had to shoot additional scenes, but also had to work on making each one different in their characteristics. “Finally, we did it and each character is interesting in the film,” John added.
Interestingly, the actor will play an elderly farmer and his twin sons - one of who is a politician and the other, a cpp. The actor’s personal favourite is the father’s character, as it is the most outstanding in terms of heroism.
The idea behind the sequel, said the actor, was to deliver a good film and entertain everyone. Satyameva Jayate 2 is the product of positive feedback to the original film, which prompted the makers to toy with turning it into a franchise.
As for the film’s crux - corruption - John added that it is commonplace in our day-to-day life as well, and that the story is the director’s interpretation of this scenario.
Helmed by Milap Zaveri, the sequel is backed by T-Series and Emmy Entertainment. Besides John, it also features Divya Khosla Kumar, Rajeev Pillai and Anup Soni.
