Satyamev Jayate' actor John Abraham: Want to encourage new talent in film industry
"Of course, when we cast him, he was a face from TV but we can see talent from anywhere. Honestly, I want to encourage more and more new talent. Coming from a non-film background, I know exactly how tough it is to get the opportunity," added the former model.

He is also very fond of actors Varun Dhawan and Tiger Shroff.
"We are really close. There is brotherhood. I would love to work with them as well. However, I believe that our film industry is a place where every talented person should get opportunity irrespective of their background," he said.
John will soon be seen in the film "Satyameva Jayate" alongside National Award-winning actor Manoj Bajpayee.

"I heard the narration and I loved it. It is a hardcore commercial film with a lot of dialogues and a face-off moment. It is an action-packed film that also addresses social issues. Violence against women is one of the issues in today's society," said the "Parmanu" actor.
"When a woman is walking on the street and men are giving her dirty looks and making her feel uncomfortable, my character punches them off because that is what those sick minded men deserve.
"This is how my character becomes aspirational for the audience. There are many such instances in the film that hopefully would connect with the audience," the actor explained.
"Satyameva Jayate" will release on August 15.
