John Abraham no longer in Satya 2
Ram Gopal Verma and John Abraham had joined hands with much fanfare with John excitedly agreeing to produce Satya 2 for Ramu, who had excitedly confessed to this writer, “John heard the concept of Satya 2 through a mutual friend and he expressed interest.
When I met him and we spoke at length I was amazed at his insights into the characters when I gave him a detailed narration of Satya 2. It’s purely our mutual excitement about the subject matter which is making us collaborate.” Now two months later, one hears John is out of the project apparently because he couldn’t see “eye to eye” with Ramu.
Says a source close to the project, “When John heard Ramu was making a sequel to Satya, he was immediately enamoured of the idea of revisiting those iconic characters from the first film. But soon John realized the Satya sequel has no connection whatsoever with the first film.
That’s where the differences started. The two of them decided to part ways rather than work on different pages for the same project.” While refusing to divulge details of their parting, Ramu admitted, “John is not a part of the production .But the film has already started shooting and is about 30% complete. Satya 2 is slated for an early June release.”
