Was John Abraham set to star in Divya Khosla’s Savi? Here’s what the actress has to say

Divya Khossla is preparing to release Savi, which stars Anil Kapoor and Harshvardhan Rane in pivotal roles. The film was directed by Abhinay Deo and produced by Mukesh Bhatt and Bhushan Kumar.

While Divya and John Abraham were promoting Satyameva Jayate 2, there were suggestions that both actors would appear together in a Mukesh Bhatt-produced film. When Savi was announced, John’s name was not linked to the film.


In an exclusive interview with Filmibeat, Divya and Abhinay discussed John’s casting in the film. When asked about the claims and whether John was being considered for the film, Divya responded, “I don’t know how those reports came out. I think at that time Satyameva Jayate 2 was coming, so probably from somewhere that report came. But, it was nothing like that.”

Abhinay added, “No, it might be something related to Satyameva Jayate 2.”

Well, it appears that there were only rumours regarding John and Divya starring in the film. But if John had starred in the film, we wonder which role he would have played: Harshvardhan’s or Anil Kapoor’s.

Divya while talking about her experience of working with Anil Kapoor, the actress told the news portal, “I take a lot of pressure on my own, I am a perfectionist, so I don’t need to take a pressure of someone else. I think it was amazing working with him because he is giving his 1000%, I am giving my 1000%. A lot of times it happens that, you are perfoming and if with some actor you click it so well that it’s magic, and with Anil sir I have experienced that whatever was happening it was magic. He is so passionate even at this age, he keeps mentioning his age ‘main 68 ka hu’, but his passion, commitment and sincerity towards work is so amazing.”

Savi is slated to release on 31st May 2024.
