Talking about the second instalment of the film, Satyameva Jayate 2 tackles corruption in all spheres from the police to politicians, industrialists, and the common man. “Satyameva Jayate was a commercial hit not just at the box office but audiences loved the action and drama. John has become our nation’s action hero since then. Nikkhil and we decided to take the franchise ahead and continue to make entertaining commercial cinema with Milap and John. The success of the first part definitely adds responsibility on us to deliver a bigger and better film this time around," says producer Bhushan Kumar.
