John Abraham is busy shooting the final schedule of Anees Bazmee directed Pagalpanti at a studio in Mumbai. And during an action sequence in a truck, John met with an accident and ended up with an arm injury. "John has been advised rest for the next 20 days to avoid aggravating the injury. His co-actors Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Pulkit Samrat, Ileana D'Cruz and Kriti Kharbanda were also a part of the scene,” a source informed Mumbai Mirror.
Kumar Mangat, who is producing the film, confirmed the accident and told Mirror, “It was a simple shot, but mistiming caused the injury. Ninety per cent of our shoot has been completed in London and Leeds. This is the last schedule in Mumbai which we will have to reschedule now. After a week, we will decide when to resume depending on how quickly he recovers. We will wrap up the film by June end." Pagalpanti is scheduled to hit the screens on November 22.
Apart from this, John will also be seen in Satyameva Jayate 2. With John in the lead, Divya Khosla Kumar is set to play the romantic lead opposite him. A source close to the development told 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. Today it is content that sells and so this is the right time for Divya to be back in the spotlight.”
