In April, the makers of 'Satyameva Jayate 2' had announced that the release of the film will be postponed due to COVID concerns. The movie was earlier slated to lock horns with 'Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai' on May 13.
In a statement, the makers of "Satyameva Jayate 2" said the film has been postponed to a later date. "In this unprecedented times, nothing matters more than the safety and health of our countrymen and patrons. Our film 'Satyameva Jayate 2' will now release on a later date," the team said.
The makers advised everybody to strictly adhere to the COVID-19 protocols. "Till then, let's keep our masks on and do our best to keep our loved ones and ourselves out of harm's way. Jai Hind," they said.
Like the first installment, 'Satyameva Jayate 2', a standalone sequel, will also focus on the fight against injustice and misuse of power. 'Satyameva Jayate', which released in 2018, became a major hit, making it Milap and John's second-biggest box office success.
The 2018 cop drama also featured Manoj Bajpayee in a pivotal role. The first film narrated the story of a cop (Bajpayee), who has been given the task to catch a person named Vir (John), who is on a spree of killing corrupt police officers. Both Bajpayee and John fight for the same reason but they are divided by the law.
