John Abraham is playing the role of a cop in Batla House. The film is based on the infamous Batla House encounter, which took place in September 2008, in Delhi's Jamia Nagar locality. In the encounter, which is popularly known as 'Operation Batla House,' two suspected terrorists were killed. The film is scheduled to release on Independence Day, next year.
Batla House is John Abraham's third collaborative project with Nikkhil Advani. Previously, the duo have worked together in Satyameva Jayate and Salaam-E-Ishq. Nikkhil Advani announced his association with John Abraham in July this year and tweeted: "An association that began way back in 2005. I am so thrilled to be collaborating with Ritesh Shah (film's writer) once again after D-Day and Airlift. We have worked for three years on this story and are so happy to have John Abraham help us tell it."
On the work front, John Abraham was last seen in Milap Zaveri's Satyameva Jayate, which performed quite well at the box office.
