Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar (T-Series), Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani, and Nikkhil Advani (Emmay Entertainment), the sequel will see filmmaker Divya Khosla Kumar return to acting. Divya will play the leading lady in the film, the statement confirms.

Bhushan says, "Emmay and T-Series have become a family and our association together have always been fruitful. Satyameva Jayate was a blockbuster, and making the second one with Milap and John was a no-guess game. And all the best to Divya, who has joined the team with this one.”

Nikkhil adds, “After the blockbuster Satyameva Jayate, we are very happy and delighted to bring to the audiences Satyameva Jayate 2 with the super-hit teams of Emmay and T-Series."

The first film narrated the story of a cop (Monoj Bajpayee), who has been given the task to catch a person named Vir (John), who is on a spree of killing corrupt police officials. Both Bajpayee and John fight for the same reason but they are divided by law. The film hit the theatres on Independence Day 2018, and had the highest opening day for an A-rated film. Despite raking in Rs 103.21 crore domestically, the film received mixed reviews from critics and audiences.

Milap Milan Zaveri, who also directed the original movie, will return to the director's chair with the sequel. The director will begin work on Satyameva Jayate 2 post the release of his upcoming film, Marjaavaan. Featuring Sidharth Malhotra, Riteish Deshmukh, and Tara Sutaria, Marjaavaan is slated to release on 8 November.
