Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma's Satya is celebrating 25 years of its release today. The radical gangster drama first hit the silver screens on 3 July 1998.

The film boasted an ensemble cast of Urmila Matondkar, Manoj Bajpayee, JD Chakravarthy, and Shefali Shah, among others. Satya also marked filmmaker Anurag Kashyap's major break as a co-writer in Varma's film at the age of 24.


On the occasion, Satya's cast and crew, including Bajpayee, Kashyap, Shah, and Matondkar, celebrated the film with their social media posts.

Shah took to Instagram and shared a montage from the film, featuring herself and Bajpayee.

Similarly, Bajpayee also shared a snippet of his popular monologue from the film on his Instagram story. He captioned it, "25 years of Satya. Mumbai ka king kaun? (Who is the king of Mumbai?)"
