Milap Zaveri’s Satyameva Jayate 2, starring John Abraham and Divya Khosla Kumar, hit cinemas yesterday. The vigilante action film is currently fighting it out with Salman Khan’s Antim: The Final Truth at the box office and we asked its leading lady her views on it.
Exclusively talking to Koimoi, Divya spoke about the clash being unhealthy and wishing it had been a solo release. Read on to know all she had to say.
Sharing her excitement on Satyameva Jayate 2 releasing on the big screen within a month of theatres across the nation opening, Divya Khosla Kumar said, “Actually I was very nervous when the release date was announced. That time tak the theatres had not even opened. People were not going to theatres. But now with Sooryavanshi making it so big, I’m finally a little bit relaxed that people are going to theatres and SJ2 is a film of entertainment is full of so I’m excited.”
During our exclusive chat, Divya Khosla Kumar also shared her views on the box office clash between Satyameva Jayate 2 and Salman Khan’s Antim: The Final Truth. When pointed out that she and John Abraham recently visited the set of Bigg Boss 15, Divya said, “So that was everything. That gives everything to closure. Controversy (gone).”
On being probed further, the actress added, “See, it definitely will (affect the business). It’s definitely not healthy but I think there are so limited release dates because now suddenly bulk films are releasing so where to go and what to do. So I think decision making becomes as tough, so… can’t really help it.”
Concluding answering us about the clash with the Salman Khan starrer, Divya Khosla Kumar said, “I would have preferred ki Satyameva Jayate 2 solo aati but abhi kuch kar nahi sakte hai.” She added, “I would like to request the audience that please watch both the films in theatres, SJ2 and Antim.”
