John Abraham is all set to star in the sequel to his popular ‘Satyameva Jayate’ (2018). However, his leading lady will reportedly be actor-director Divya Khosla Kumar. Kumar hasn’t been seen on the big screen since her Bollywood debut ‘Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyo’ (2004), but has starred in the short film ‘Bulbul’ and has been behind the lense, directing ‘Yaariyan’ (2014) and ‘Sanam Re’ (2016). She is said to have a integral role in the film.
A source revealed to Mumbai Mirror, “Milap had fleshed out strong characters for John and Manoj Bajpayee in the first part. This time, he has written a memorable leading role for Divya. While SMJ2 will still pack a lot of punches, this time around it will be a commercial family entertainer with a patriotic flavour. What drew her to the project is that the role is integral to the narrative and will present her in an interesting light.”
