The tweet read, “Kickstarting with the deadly combo of Mass Action and Dialoguebaazi, the journey of #SatyamevaJayate2 begins today! Directed by #MilapZaveri, starring @TheJohnAbraham @iamDivyaKhosla…”

The sequel features John Abraham and Divya Khosla Kumar in lead roles, along with Manoj Bajpayee, Daya Shankar Pandey and Nora Fatehi in supporting roles. The lead actors are shooting in Lucknow.
As per a report by India Today report, Zaveri confirmed the film schedule and said: “On the first day, we will shoot only with the lead pair, but subsequently, other actors like Harsh Chhaya, Gautami Kapoor, Shaad Randhawa, Anup Soni, and Sahil Vaid will join in.”
“We will be shooting across Lucknow, including at heritage structures like palaces and colleges. Some of the live locations will be completely sealed off, so crowd gazers cannot sneak in. Only our cast and crew will be present on the spot,” he added.

The first look poster was released last October. The sequel was slated to release on October 2 this year but was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the consequent lockdown. The film will be shot in Lucknow and is slated to release in May 2021, around the time of Eid.

Recently, former Bigg Boss contestant Santosh Shukla joined the cast as one of the antagonists. Talking about his preparation for the film, he said: “I have learned martial arts and have become quite flexible and athletic now. I have also experimented with my looks. I am sporting short hair and a dense beard in the film.”

Abraham was last seen in Pagalpanti (2019) and his upcoming works include Mumbai Saga and Attack.
