Bollywood actor John Abraham on Thursday shared the trailer of his upcoming action thriller film Satyameva Jayate, co-starring Manoj Bajpayee, Amruta Khanvilkar and Aisha Sharma. A series of stills have already been shared by the film's makers and stars, increasing the anticipation for the film, which has certainly been further boosted by the release of the action-packed trailer.

In the Satyameva Jayate trailer, John essays the role of a vigilante who has a goal of stopping anyone who engages in corruption, especially if the corrupt person is police officer. As the death toll from his vigilante activities increases, he is known as a 'serial killer' and the police launch a manhunt for him.

A senior police officer, played by the talented Manoj Bajpayee leads the hunt for the vigilante serial killer. Through several dialogues, Bajpayee emphasises that nobody has the right to take justice into their own hands.

In brief flashbacks, it's revealed that John's father was also a police officer but was stripped of his badge, after which he committed suicide by setting fire to himself. The trauma of losing his father in such as way is what spurs John to launch his campaign against corruption, especially corrupt police officers.

Aisha Sharma, who makes her Bollywood debut in Satyameva Jayate is visible in a few scenes, but her role is not immediately clear.

Watch the trailer below:

Written and directed by Milap Milan Zaveri, Satyameva Jayate is produced by  Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar and Nikhil Advani (Emmay Entertainment). Based on Satyameva Jayate's announced release date of August 15, it is set to clash with 'Gold' starring Akshay Kumar as well as with Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se, the third installment of the Yamla Pagla Deewana franchise, starring Dharmendra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol.
