John Abraham gets injured while shooting for Satyameva Jayate

Satyameva Jayate has booked 15 August as the release date when it will collide at the box office with Akshay Kumar's Gold

Mumbai: Actor John Abraham is known for his action and also for doing his own stunts. The actor refused to use a body double for the self-flagellation sequence in the song, Tajdar-E-Haram. While depicting a ritual performed during Muharram, John suffered injuries.

Recollecting the four-day shoot in Wadala, director Milap Zaveri says, “We had to use real knives because the audience would be able to tell the fake ones from the real. By the fourth take, John had suffered multiple cuts. Since he had makeup on, we didn’t realise that he was bleeding. It was only after we had canned the shot that he rushed to get medical help.”

Zaveri said that John continued shooting till he got the shot right and only after that he asked for medical assistance: “Since he had makeup on, we didn’t realise that he was bleeding. It was only after we had canned the shot that he rushed to get medical help.”

Well, John was on his feet again soon after and he also filmed an action sequence during the same schedule: “John even filmed an action scene after we wrapped up the song shoot,” Milap Zaveri added.

Being a professional that he is, John shot an action scene after the song was wrapped.

Satyameva Jayate also stars Aisha Sharma, Manoj Bajpayee, and Amruta Khanvilkar. The trailer of Satyameva Jayate, released in June, gives a glimpse of the song in it.

Satyameva Jayate has booked 15 August as the release date when it will collide at the box office with Akshay Kumar’s Gold. In an interview John said, the release date is a decision entirely made by the makers and hence, he has little to do with it: “Akshay is an actor in Gold and I am an actor in Satyameva Jayate. It’s a producer’s decision from both sides. It is about Excel Entertainment and T-Series, so I have no say in that at all.”
