John Abraham hurt himself while shooting flagellation scene in a song for Satyameva Jayate
Actor John Abraham is known for his action and also for doing his own stunts. The actor refused to use 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.”
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 film produced by TSeries and Emmay Entertainment, is slated to release on 15th August 2018.
