To be helmed by writer-director Milap Zaveri and produced by Nikkhil Advani’s Emmay Entertainment in association with Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series, the forthcoming Hindi feature film ‘Satyamev Jayate’ has finally booked a date for its theatrical release. The film, which stars John Abraham and Manoj Bajpayee in lead roles, will enter cinemas on 15th August 2018, on the occasion of Independence Day.
There has been a lot of buzz around the film ever since it was formally announced in January. However, the makers had not revealed the title and release date of the movie at that time. Today, they made it official that their next venture is called ‘Satyame Jayate’ which will release on Independence Day 2018. Nikkhil Advani’s Emmay Entertainment announced the news on Twitter, captioning, “#SatyamevaJayate, starring @TheJohnAbraham and @BajpayeeManoj and directed by @zmilap is coming your way this Independence day, 15th August 2018. Get ready for some intense action and power-packed dialoguebaazi! #SMJ”
‘Satyamev Jayate’ marks the second collaboration between actors John Abraham and Manoj Bajpayee. As far as the female lead of the film is concerned, model-turned-actress Aisha Sharma, who is the younger sister of popular Bollywood actress Neha Sharma, has been cast opposite John.
Intrestingly, Akshay Kumar’s hotly anticipated period drama ‘Gold’ is also releasing on 15th August. Directed by Reema Kagti, the film is produced by Excel Entertainment. Now it remains to be seen if the producers of any of these two films pull their film out to avoid a clash at the box office.
