The trailer of the film looks interesting and also does promises to give an insight into what exactly happened during the encounter of the Batla House which made headlines in the national newspapers back in 2008. Till now what the trailer of Batla House gave, the film seems like a winner from cinematography, background score to the performances.

John Abraham is playing the role of a cop and recently he was found talking about his character as he said, “The responsibility is even bigger as this is the first time I am playing someone who is still serving. If he (Sanjeev Kumar) thinks I am not good enough, he can shoot me (laughs!). So, I better be good at portraying him in the film. There were times when I was tempted to take creative liberties, but I refrained from that; I wanted to be true to the character. It was interesting playing him, but it was difficult, too, because it is a strong and conflicting character. A lot has happened in his life post the Batla House incident and to present that on screen was difficult. It’s like walking on a double-edged sword and you don’t want to tilt either way. So, this is not Nikkhil (Advani, director) or my version of a story that we want people to believe in, but this is what it is we believe in, factually.”

People who have watched the trailer are stunned by the impactful dialogues used in the film. In the trailer, John Abraham cannot be missed for his impeccable getup. Beside John Abraham, Mrunal Thakur is playing John Abraham’s life partner and the actress is playing the role of an Intelligence officer. Batla House is also featuring supporting actors like Prakash Raj, Ravi Kishan, and Kranti Prakash Jha.

Batla House helmed by Nikhil Advani is based on the incident that took place inside Batla House in 2008 where a team of officers were involved in an encounter and had some students as victims. Though the officers at first were criticized for their action but later it was revealed that the young men were connected with the terrorist gang. The role of the lead officer will be played by John Abraham who will be supported by one of the officers played by Ravi Kishan. Batla House is a joined venture between John Abraham and Bhushan Kumar of T-Series.
