Initially, work on the film was to begin in April post the bustle around Marjaavaan starring Riteish Deshmukh, Sidharth Malhotra, Tara Sutaria, and Rakul Preet Singh that released on 22 November 2019. Owing to the lockdown, the commencement of shoot has been delayed but it has given Milap some extra time to work on his script and dialogues for the film. In January, the director was also found scouting locations for the film.

A report in Mumbai Mirror read that the director has even cracked the line for Satyameva Jayate 3 and will carry on with the franchise in which John’s character will continue to question corruption in different fields just as in the first installment.
Satyameva Jayate 2 has roped in actor Divya Khosla Kumar who makes a comeback as the female lead after her Tollywood debut Love Today alongside Udhay Kiran. She known for directing films like Yaariyan and Sanam Re and is the wife of producer Bhushan Kumar. Manoj Bajpayee and Amyra Dastur also play pivotal roles in the film.
The film is a sequel to Satyameva Jayate (2018) which starred John Abraham, Manoj Bajpayee, Aisha Sharma, Amruta Khanvilkar amongst others, and hit the screens on Independence day and fared decently at the box office.
Satyameva Jayate 2 will see John taking up a role in which he will perform stunts usually seen in superhero films, while questioning corruption in different fields. The action-drama will also reportedly have a dash of comedy. Divya is also said to have an influential role in the film. Anbariv master, who is famous down South, will be handling action sequences for the film.
The film is slated for release on 2 Oct 2020 and will be shot mostly across Mumbai.
Last year, two posters of the film were released by the team. One featured John Abraham ripping apart the cop uniform he dons, revealing the Indian flag smeared on his chest. The other featured Divya Khosla Kumar in white salwar with the spokes, along with a tri-colour dupatta. The posters also had the words “Tann, Mann, Dhann Se Badhkar. Jann, Gann, Mann” translating to ‘the country is superior to the body, mind, and heart’.
Meanwhile, John Abraham who was last seen in Anees Bazmee’s Pagalpanti will next feature in Sanjay Gupta’s Mumbai Saga and debutant Lakshya Raj Anand’s Attack. Recently, his JA Entertainment also bagged the Hindi remake rights of Malayalam hit Ayyappanum Koshiyum starring Prithviraj Sukumaran and Biju Menon.
Milap Milan Zaveri has reportedly hatched three more stories apart from Satyameva Jayate 3 in this lockdown, an action entertainer, a dark subject, and a comedy script.
