Producer Nikkhil Advani shared that Milap thought Lucknow would be an apt setting and relocated the story there. Milap also informed that some of the live locations will be sealed off, to stop the crowd. This would ensure social distancing and prevent the spread of coronavirus. On shoot, only the cast and crew members will be present.
The director lauded John Abraham for agreeing to shoot in these tough times. Acknowledging the challenge, producer Bhushan Kumar said stringent SoPs will create a safe shooting environment.
“It will be scary for the crew at live locations, but it is important to give our audience some entertainment during this pandemic,” Bhushan said while promising that the second installment of Satyamev Jayate will be bigger and better.
Satyameva Jayate 2, co-produced by Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani, Nikkhil Advani (Emmay Entertainment), is slated to release on May 12, 2021.
