John Abraham-starrer Satyamev Jayate to release on 15 August, will clash with Akshay Kumar's Gold
For the past few days, the upcoming film Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran and the spat between the film's co-producers JA Entertainment and KriArj Entertainment have been at the centre of speculations. On 3 April, John Abraham announced that Parmanu is slated to release on 4 May commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Pokhran tests.
Now, the actor has announced the title and release date of his upcoming intense action thriller that also stars Manoj Bajpayee and is directed by Milap Zaveri. The film is titled Satyameva Jayate and is expected to hit the theatres on 15 August, along with Reema Kagti's Gold starring Abraham's Desi Boyz co-star Akshay Kumar.

Debutante actress Aisha Sharma will be seen in the film opposite Abraham. She is reportedly going to the essay the role of a veterinarian and has been prepping diligently for her part. Satyameva Jayate is reported to be a cop drama and promises to be a power-packed-dialogues-infused action drama. Bajpayee had tweeted earlier:

Mid-Day, in one of its reports ,suggests that the makers of the film — Bhushan Kumar's T-Series and Nikkhil Advani — were keen on keeping the film's title as Satyameva Jayate, but were waiting for Aamir Khan (who hosted a socially-relevant TV show by the same name) to give a clean chit, which they have got now.
