John Abraham is returning with the sequel of his 2018 release, Satyameva Jayate. The movie helmed by Milap Zaveri enjoyed a good run at the box office and its success prompted the makers to plan a sequel around it. While we are excited with this latest development, we didn't really see it coming so soon. According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, John has given his nod to the sequel and if all goes well, he'll romance Divya Khosla Kumar in this new project. Yes, Bhushan Kumar's wife is returning to the big screen as an actress and it would be interesting to see her chemistry with the Batla House actor.

According to a source close to the project, "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." John Abraham's Satyameva Jayate 2 May Go on Floors this Year and Release in January 2020.
After marking her debut in 2004 with Akshay Kumar's Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyo, Divya disappeared from the movie scenario and married Bhushan Kumar in 2005. Later she decided to direct Yaariyan in 2014 and it was followed by Sanam Re in 2017. However, she's excited to be a part of this big project that will be produced by her hubby Bhushan Kumar.
Earlier when LatestLY got in touch with Manoj Bajpayee, the actor was clueless about a sequel of Satyameva Jayate being in the pipeline. Though he insisted that Milap won't go ahead without John or him. Now we wonder if Manoj is still a part of this sequel or the storyline completely revolves around John and Divya.
