As the country is getting back to normal under Covid-19 unlock 4.0 guidelines, Hindi film industry too has started to resume work while maintaining the safety norms. Where production of several movies is hitting floors, makers of 2018’s blockbuster hit action-thriller sequel, ‘Satyameva Jayate 2’ too have announced the release date of this high-octane patriotic movie starring John Abraham and Manoj Bajpai.
Directed by Milap Zaveri and bank rolled by T-Series and Emmay Entertainment, ‘Satyameva Jayate 2’ will this time show John fighting off the corruption in all spheres from the police to politicians, industrialists, and the common man that too in the town of Lucknow.
Talking about the change in shoot location and script from Mumbai to Lucknow, director Milap says, “Creatively we changed the script to Lucknow as it gave us a chance to make it more massy and also make the canvas larger. Visually also Lucknow adds to the scale and grandeur. The action of this film is gonna be ten times more dynamic, heroic, and powerful. John is going to smash, Rip and annihilate the corrupt like he never has before on the silver screen and Divya is going to wow audiences with her power-packed scenes, dramatic prowess, grace and beauty. Satyameva Jayate 2 like part one is a film of the masses and is also a celebration of action, music, dialoguebaazi, patriotism, and heroism.
“Eid” is a perfect occasion to release as it will offer entertainment galore. With Bhushan sir, Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani and Nikkhil Advani backing me once again I can promise next year on 12th May we will do our best to deliver a festive bonanza for all audiences!”

Whereas producer Nikkhil Advani tells about this change, “As Milap kept developing the subject, he realised that India’s heartland lent itself increasingly to his plotline. As producers, we were happy to pivot to support his creative choices. Hence the story is now based and to be shot in Lucknow, one of my personal favourite cities in India. This is an extremely special film for us. The love shown by fans to the first instalment in this franchise has encouraged us to create a bigger, more exciting experience, presenting John Abraham as never seen before. We are hopeful that prevailing circumstances will improve and pave the way for us to reach our audience in theatres once again.”
“Satyameva Jayate was a commercial hit not just at the box office but audiences loved the action and drama. John has become our nation’s action hero since then. Nikkhil and we decided to take the franchise ahead and continue to make entertaining commercial cinema with Milap and John. The success of the first part definitely adds responsibility on us to deliver a bigger and better film this time around. Milap has written a mind-blowing script which is massy, that will have fabulous songs and will connect with the audiences. And John will don a never seen before look. And we are coming to the theatres on Eid next year which makes it even more festive.”, opening up on the sequel of this commercially hit movie producer Bhushan Kumar said.
‘Satyameva Jayate 2’ is an action-drama, starring Divya Khosla Kumar alongside John Abraham in lead. The movie is slated to release on May 12, 2021 around Eid.
