Mumbai: The John Abraham-starrer Satyameva Jayate2 is all set to release in May 12, 2021 on the auspicious occasion of Eid.

While the first film, which had released in 2018, dealt with the corruption in Indian police, the sequel goes deeper exploring corruption across the worlds of politicians, industrialists, police and the common man.

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 took to Twitter Monday to share the first-look poster of the film. Flaunting his abs in the poster, one can see the tricolour bleeding from his chest. He captioned the poster: ‘Jis desh ki maiyya Ganga hai, wahan khoon bhi Tiranga hai! (a country where Ganga is the mother, there even the blood is tricolour) #SatyamevaJayate2 in cinemas on 12th May, EID 2021.’
