Recently, rumours started doing the rounds that the action star has three roles in the Milap Zaveri-directed film, but it now seems like all such unconfirmed reports could just be publicity hoax and not much else.

According to John, Satyameva Jayate 2 “will be very different in its treatment” from the first film, released in 2018. In an interview to the tabloid Mumbai Mirror, he said: “The original was primarily a film for the masses. This time, we aim to get the classes in, too, by tackling relevant issues.”

On rumours if a triple role, the actor avoided a direct reply. “Milap is still in the process of developing certain characters and he might like me to play other roles, too. But that’s still up for a lot of discussion. So, I can’t say if there’s going to be one, two or three of me in the film,” he told the tabloid, according to news18.com.

“Satyameva Jayate 2” is scheduled to release on October 2.

She has been very strict about what she eats, which is a low carb diet. She has also attended various other sessions to prepare for the character.

Being a Bengali girl, I always had a sweet tooth but I can’t have any (sweets) during this diet, which is a huge challenge. I am trying to enjoy it. I would not let my director down on the day of shoot at any cost. It’s been a long time coming. My energy system is changing though. I feel more agile and energetic. I will come out with details about this project soon,” she said.

Sonu feels before that song released, filmmakers and fans alike would dismiss his talent, saying he was just another Mohammad Rafi clone. “Yeh Dil Deewana”, filmed on SRK in the 1997 Subhash Ghai film, changed all that, according to the singer.

“No one discovered my originality till they heard ‘Yeh dil deewana’. I sang this song exactly how the director envisaged it, and both the song and film became superhit, and I became the Sonu Nigam,” he added.

Sonu recently paid a visit to Ghai’s Whistling Woods film school, where he went down memory lane and recalled about his experience of singing “Yeh dil deewana” for Shah Rukh in the film.

The singer is currently busy performing at live concerts and working on non-film songs. (IANS)
