John Abraham kickstarts shooting for ‘Batla House’
Bollywood superstar John Abraham has begun shooting for director Nikkhil Advani’s film ‘Batla House’, which is based on a real encounter that took place in Delhi. In this film, John will be seen portraying the role of DCP Sanjeev Kumar Yadav who spearheaded the 2008 Batla House Encounter case.
The movie is based on the encounter that took place on September 19, 2008, when a seven-member Special Cell Team barged into a flat in Batla House, Jamia Nagar in search of Atif Bashir, Chief of the Indian Mujahideen. The encounter is officially known as Operation Batla House.
As the film went on floors director Nikkhil Advani took to Instagram to share the news and will be reuniting with John as a director after ‘Salaam-E-Ishq’, which released way back in 2007.
