Bollywood: The release date of John Abraham and Divya Khosla Kumar’s upcoming film Satyameva Jayate 2 has been postponed amid the second wave of coronavirus pandemic. The second edition of the Satyameva Jayate franchise was earlier scheduled to release on May 13 this year.
Director Milap Zaveri, took to Instagram to announce the postponement of the release owing to COVID resurgence. The statement read, “In these unprecedented times, nothing matters more than the safety and health of our countrymen and patrons. Our film Satyameva Jayate 2 will now release at a later date. Till then let’s keep our masks on and do our best to keep our loved ones and ourselves out of harm’s way.

Prior to the postponement, Milap Zaveri’s Instagram post read,” This EID it’s JOHN vs JOHN as #SatyamevaJayate2 releases on 13th May 2021! LADENGE iss SAAL, dono BHARAT MAA KE LAAL!” The postponement of Satyameva Jayate 2’s clash with Salman Khan’s Radhe has been averted though it is unclear if Radhe itself will release at the appointed time.
The sequel features John Abraham and Divya Khosla Kumar as leads. John will play double roles (Satya and Jay) in the upcoming film. Actors Anup Soni and Rajeev Pillai will also be seen in the movie.
