Congratulations on the success of Parmanu. Satyamev Jayate has opened to nice collections however whereas the theme is totally different, the style is similar – patriotic movies! Weren’t you apprehensive that it might result in comparisons?
No, with each movie, you play a special character. I used to be not apprehensive, and I might like to be in comparison with my very own movies relatively than anyone else’s! In reality, I’m completely open to comparisons.
The theme of Satyamev Jayate is in regards to the battle towards corruption, it’s one thing now we have seen earlier than. What makes this movie totally different?
There’s extra to this movie than simply the battle towards corruption. Whenever you watch the movie, I’m certain you possibly can admire what my director (Milap Zaveri) has tried to do. And certainly when John Abraham and Manoj Bajpayee have come collectively for a undertaking, it’s as a result of there may be substance to it! We’re each pondering actors and it doesn’t make one of the best sense for us simply to do a industrial movie for the sake of it. This movie we figured and found has loads of construction to it, and loads of plot factors, moreover the emotional content material.
Why is there a lot blood and gore within the movie?
In reality within the trailer, we used some shoots of Muharram, and I have to say on file that what you see within the trailer might be as a lot as you get in all the movie. There’s nothing extra… perhaps about 20% extra – the great thing about this movie. It’s not bloody, barring these pictures you noticed. There’s no nudity, or dangerous language, it’s a fully clear movie. We’ll be very completely happy if youngsters of all communities and faith come to observe this movie.
Satyamev Jayate has additionally been described as a vigilante movie…
No, it’s not a vigilante movie, it’s a movie that speaks about each side of the coin – if it exhibits the dangerous, it exhibits the nice as properly. I might positively not slot this into the vigilante area. It’s very, very removed from it. And, like I mentioned the title is related to the plot.
Patriotism is such a sensitive matter lately, how do you differentiate it from jingoism and the way has that being tackled within the movie?
I believe, patriotism, greater than sensitive is an overdone matter. We’ve already proven it in Parmanu which continues to be working in theatres. So, I believe time you watch a industrial movie that talks about nationalism however a lot extra too!
A nonetheless from John Abraham
Given the very polarised environment, particularly on social media, do you assume twice earlier than presenting your views on any present matter? What’s your view on social media gasoline controversy?
Similar to the social media stars, there are social media trolls. My colleague as soon as mentioned that in the event that they do get verified accounts, it’ll be good, you possibly can take them severely in that area. Social media is a really sturdy platform, and folks use it very successfully, particularly individuals who know their faces can’t be seen. They use it much more successfully as a result of it makes you courageous! So, hats off to all these folks.
As an actor and a citizen, what are the problems you are feeling extra strongly about?
I really feel strongly about cruelty and security of ladies and kids on this nation. I really feel strongly towards cruelty in direction of animals on this nation. I really feel there’s full disregard for all times on this nation. Whenever you don’t care about life and also you don’t care about your individual folks, how are you going to be involved about your economic system and different points however we’re! So, I believe it’s excessive time we sat up, put stress on training and educate our folks to respect life and all types of life.
