Talking about their shooting schedule, director Milap Zaveri said, “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.”
The action sequences too will be shot at live locations and Milap lauded his team for agreeing to work on the film amid the pandemic. “It will be scary for the crew at live locations, but it is important to give our audience some entertainment during this pandemic,” said the filmmaker.
“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,” said producer Nikkhil Advani.
Before Coronavirus struck, the film was based in Mumbai but later the makers felt that Lucknow would be an apt setting for the movie. Milap also revealed that John’s roots in the film are in Varanasi and believes that the transition will give the film a pan-India appeal. They will also shoot for a few days at a Mumbai studio early next year before wrapping up the movie.
Satyameva Jayate 2 is slated to release on May 12, 2021.
