John Abraham: ‘Satyameva Jayate 2’ is for masses, not niche audience

Bollywood star John Abraham, who is playing a triple role for the first time in his career in his upcoming movie ‘Satyameva Jayate 2’, says that the movie has been quite specifically made for the mass audience who go to the theatres and enjoy the out-and-out commercial film.

The movie is a sequel, and the 1st instalment was released in the year 2018.

According to the actor, the 2nd part is made purely after receiving approval from the audience that translated at the box-office.

While after the release of the trailer, on social media, it has received a lot of negative responses, John in conversation with local news reporter shared his thoughts.

John said, Firstly, our film ‘Satyameva Jayate 2’ is made for the mass audience and not for the niche. People who buy tickets, go to the theatres, especially the audience of single-screen theatres in a small town, are not bothered about the reviews and critical explanation. They want entertainment.

“That is why their enthusiasm is also reflected in the box-office collection. For us, actors, and producers, that is the most important factor. I also must mention that there is a clear disconnect between what is happening on social media and how that is played out on box-office collections. We made this film clearly for the mass audience who came to watch ‘Satyameva Jayate’.

John further said, “Before the release therefore we as makers of the film are more concerned about the number of screens, first-day collections and everything to do with the business of the film. Post pandemic now that things are coming back, theatrical release and bringing people back to the theatres is very important to boost the business.”

‘Satyameva Jayate 2’ is directed by Milap Zaveri, produced by T-Series Films and Emmay Entertainment, and features Divya Khosla Kumar, Harsh Chhaya, Anup Soni, Gautami Kapoor, among others.

Speaking about his role in the movie, John said, “I knew that I will be playing two characters, one that of the vigilante which is inspired by the first part of the film and second is of a police officer. They are twin brothers, and I am also playing the father of these two youngsters when the story goes to a flashback.

“Initially, I was not convinced with playing the father’s character but eventually, I did. That character is set in a different time and era. Whereas the story of DSP Jay and Satya is set in the present time. Though this was not the first time I played a police officer, as you know I played a real-life iconic personality like late DCP Sanjeev Kumar Yadav in ‘Batla House’ but playing DSP Jay was very different. He is a righteous yet fun guy who takes off his uniform in a face-off with a vigilante. It will be fun to watch characters for our audience.”

‘Satyameva Jayate 2’ will be released in theaters on 25th November.
