Helmed by Nikkhil Advani, Batla House is touted to be a retelling of the 2008 encounter with alleged terrorists that took place in Batla House in Jamia Nagar, Delhi. John played the role of ACP Sanjeev Kumar Yadav, who was a real-life key figure in the Delhi Police’s special cell.
The film is expected to face tough competition because of a clash with Mission Mangal. Although, the film can grow over the weekend.
