John Abraham as Veer in Satyameva Jayate
The actor played vigilante in the film who fights against corruption and social injustice. Asked whether working in such intense action-drama film changes him as a person, he said: "I don't think it has changed me. I think it's meant to entertain the audience. It's a very entertaining film. It shows harsh realities like corruption and women molestation so, my character and Manoj Bajpayee's character address these situations but in different ways."
The movie featured John Abraham, Manoj Bajpayee, Amruta Khanvilkar and Aisha Sharma in lead roles.
