The John Abraham-starrer 'Satyameva Jayate 2' will release on May 14, 2021 on the occasion of Eid.
While the first film, which had released in 2018, dealt with corruption, the sequel goes deeper exploring corruption across the worlds of police, politicians, industrialists, and the common man.
John took to his social media accounts to make the announcement on the occasion of Republic Day. Sharing a picture of himself waving the national flag, the actor wrote, “TANN MANN DHANN, se Badhkar JANN GANN MANN! The team of #SatyamevaJayate2 wishes everyone a Happy Republic Day! See you in cinemas this EID on 14th May 2021”
Changing his story setting from Mumbai to Lucknow for the sequel, director Milap Zaveri said: "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 going to 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 (actress) Divya Khosla Kumar 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," he added.
This also means that the franchise will clash with Salman Khan’s much-awaited film 'Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai'.
"Sorry it has taken me a long time to revert to all the theatre owners... It's a big decision to make during these times. I understand the financial problems that the theatre owners/exhibitors are going through and I would like to help them by releasing Radhe in theatres," he said in a statement on social media.
"In return I would expect them to take utmost amount of care and precautions for the audience who would come to the theatre to watch Radhe. The commitment was of EID and it will be Eid 2021 inshallah. Enjoy Radhe this year in theatres on Eid.. God willing," Salman added
Directed by Prabhu Deva, 'Radhe' also stars Disha Patani and Randeep Hooda.Biggest Deal in Bollywood: Salman Khan's 'Radhe' rights sold for Rs 230 cr to Zee Studios
