Directed by Nikkhil Advani, Batla Houseis reportedly based on the infamous Batla House encounter, which occurred on 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 will be Nora's third Bollywood project as an actress. She made her Bollywood debut with the 2018 film My Birthday Song. Her second project is Ali Abbas Zafar's Bharat, co-starring Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif and Tabu, in which she will be seen playing a Latino.
Nora became a household name after she featured in the television reality show Bigg Boss season 9. She is best-known for her dance performances in songs such as Naah, Manohari from Baahubali: The Beginning, Kamariya from Stree and Dilbar redux from Satyameva Jayate.
