Media reports suggest that Divya Khosla Kumar could be playing the female lead alongside John Abraham in Satyameva Jayate 2.
A source close to the development informed 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.”
Divya made her acting debut in 2004 in Anil Sharma’s film, Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyo opposite Akshay Kumar.
Post the film, she married T-Series’ head Bhushan Kumar in 2005.
She also directed around 20 music videos. In 2014, she made directed her film Yaariyan and then Sanam Re, in 2016.
It is also being speculated that Milap has locked the final draft and he will soon start the preparations.
Satyameva Jayate 2 is expected to go on floors after Milap’s film Marjaavaan hits the theatres in October which stars Sidharth Malhotra, Tara Sutaria, Riteish Deshmukh and Rakul Preet.
