Today, the makers dropped the first-look posters of the movie, which created a lot of buzz on social media. Talking about the sequel, John Abraham said in a statement, “I genuinely enjoyed the story and telling of the original film. I could tell it was a story that the audience will find engaging. With SMJ2, the aim, once again, is to entertain the audience with a story that is relevant in today’s times.”

Divya Khosla Kumar, who began her acting career with the Anil Sharma directorial Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyon (2004) and later switched to direction, is making her silver screen comeback with Satyamev Jayate 2. Talking about what led her to say yes to the film, she said, “I did not want to act in a film just for the sake of it. For me, what mattered was the story and the role, and I got the right opportunity with this film.”

Bankrolled by T-Series and Emmay Entertainment and Motion Pictures, Satyamev Jayate 2 will be directed by Milap Zaveri. “Satyameva Jayate 2 is twice the action, emotion, power, patriotism and punch. Led by John Abraham back as a crusader for justice and with Divya Khosla Kumar joining the franchise, I hope next Gandhi Jayanti we provide the audiences with a powerful entertainer that also gives a strong message against corruption,” said the filmmaker.

Set to hit the shooting floor soon, Satyameva Jayate 2 is poised for its theatrical release on October 2, 2020.
