A few months back, the makers of ‘Batla House’ announced that actor John Abraham and director Nikkhil Advani will collaborate for this upcoming action-packed venture. Now the latest development about the film has come out that it will go on floors in September and will be jointly produced by Bhushan Kumar, Nikkhil Advani and John Abraham. It will be shot across Delhi, Jaipur, Lucknow, Mumbai and Nepal.
John Abraham will portray the character of ACP Sanjeev Kumar Yadav in ‘Batla House’. Talking about the film, Nikkhil had told, “The encounter will be seen from three perspectives—that of the police, those present near the location, many of whom believed that the bullets flying were for the TV serial Swabhimaan which was being shot in the vicinity just two days ago, and the real picture.” Nikkhil also said that John perfectly fits the bill and he will pull off his character effortlessly. “Sanjeev Kumar Yadav wanted a physically and mentally strong actor and John fits the bill. With a little light on him and a flash of those dimples, John stands out in a crowd. The biggest challenge will be to make him blend in.”
‘Batla House’ will mark the second collaboration between John Abraham and Nikkhil Advani after ‘Salaam-E-Ishq’. On the work front, John will be next seen in ‘Satyameva Jayate’ which is directed by Milap Milan Zaveri and also stars Manoj Bajpayee and Aisha Sharma in pivotal roles. It is set to hit the screens on August 15, during the Independence Day weekend and will lock horns with Akshay Kumar’s ‘Gold’ at the box office.
