John Abraham and Manoj Bajpayee starrer Satyameva Jayate, an action masala entertainer, which released yesterday, has opened up with 20.52 crore at the box office. Being a national holiday, the film received a fabulous response from the audience. Despite being an A rated film, Satyameva Jayate has become the highest opener for actors John Abraham and Manoj Bajpayee.

Bhushan Kumar says, “It is a big day for the team of Satyameva Jayate. The film has opened to an extraordinaire number. Emmay and our association after Airlift gave us the confidence to make many more films with Nikkhil and team, SMJ has created history for our association. Milap has made a blockbuster and that's visible with the love and applause from the masses. These figures are the biggest of our joint association with Emmay and also a biggie for John and Manoj. We are extremely happy and thankful to the audiences, the actors and the entire SMJ team.”

Nikkhil Advani says, “It’s been a highly emotional day for the entire team of SMJ watching the film with the audiences that it was made to reach out to. Milap’s conviction and outright confidence has paid huge dividends and as producers we are extremely gratified by the record breaking numbers that have appreciated the film as well as the reviews that understood the intention with which the story had been narrated.”

As per trade reports, even though the film is an A certificate film, the opening at the box office and bookings for the week is spectacular.

Directed by Milap Milan Zaveri and produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series and Emmay Entertainment, Satyameva Jayate is an action packed entertainer.

It released with Akshay Kumar’s ‘Gold’ and the movie is one of the biggest releases of the month which is set to have a free run considering it has little to no competition from ‘Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi’, ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se’ and ‘Stree’ which will hit the theatres in the coming weeks.
