Shooting of two films of John Abraham has moved forward two months. Those two films are ‘Satyamev Jayate 2’ and ‘Mumbai Saga’. He and the entire team were to leave for Hyderabad on July 15 for the ‘Mumbai Saga’. Ramoji was about to isolate and shoot at Filmcity. But people associated with the production said that this plan has been postponed. Instead of going there, related locations are being searched in Mumbai itself. This film has 10 to 12 days to work. They are all ‘action’ and ‘talkie’ sequences.
The cast and crew members of the shoot did not book tickets. Everyone was waiting whether the better option would be Hyderabad or Mumbai. All were to return to Hyderabad on July 15 to return to the first week of August. Now in Mumbai, the date has moved forward to 15th August.
Mumbai Saga had an impact on Satyamev Jayate 2
Its natural effect was on ‘Satyamev Jayate 2’. It was to be shot from the first week of August. But now the film is slipping to September and October. It was to be shot in Mumbai, but due to ‘Mumbai Saga’ being also in Mumbai, the location of this film is being shifted to Lucknow. According to trade pundits, the film will have a backdrop in Lucknow. This will also make the film worth taking subsidy from the UP government.
John associated with abhishek sharma
Despite the failure of ‘Zoya Factor’ after these two, John Abraham’s trust with Abhishek Sharma has not deterred. Both were able to give hit films as ‘Atomic’. Now John Abraham will again film with Abhishek Sharma. It has been officially confirmed.
Speaking to Dainik Bhaskar, Abhishek Sharma said, there is a lot of exiting project. John Abraham has also said that the film has not been made in India on that topic till date. John Beck is doing that kind of story as an actor and producer. That’s a big deal. He is the only person who can support such a film. It is very different style.
On this, when John completes the remaining portions of ‘Satyamev Jayate’ and ‘Mumbai Saga’, then we will start the shoot. Corona and the lockdown have all delayed the stars’ dates. In such a situation, when we will go to the shoot of this film, it is a bit uncertain. Had the corona and lockdown not happened, we would have gone to the shoot from early next year.
The genre is brand new. In doing so, people have neither seen me nor John. Perhaps people in Hindustan would not have seen films of that genre. Will be fun Atomic was a film by Veer Ras. It is a film of ‘Awesome Ras’. Not the genre like ‘Avatar’ of fantasy genre. People will be able to see John in the film ‘Awesome Ras’. The world is different. John is very excited about this. He is about to announce it in his own way.
In these four months, there were hours of talking on the phone with John. There is also a plan to meet. John has kept its working title ‘Ray’. What will be the final title will be decided.
No cuts in freedom from producers
Abhishek also clarified that he is limited to films. They are getting offers for OTT too, but they are not moving there. He also said that due to the lockdown, there has not been much change in the demand of producers. Still the writer and directors are being given complete freedom. In particular, a very good work is being done on Hotstar platform. Special ops and Arya are definitely better. Hostages is a great adaption. Netflix and Amazon are also not putting any restriction in the lockdown due to the lockdown situation.
Shooting of Diljit despite being jet lagged
There are a lot of award-winning actors in Sun Heavy on Mars. Manoj Pahwa, Manoj Bajpayee, Diljit Dosanjh are all amazing. Everyone shot the film with five hours of extra time on the last day of the shoot. Otherwise, the lockdown was announced on the same day. We could also be trapped. Diljit came on tour. They had jet lag. Despite that he completed the shoot in fatigue.
