The thriller drama is inspired by the real Batla House encounter that took place almost a decade ago on September 19, 2008, officially known as Operation Batla House. John Abraham is playing the role of Sanjeev Kumar Yadav, who spearheaded the encounter. The incident took place against Indian Mujahideen (IM) terrorists in Batla House locality in Jamia Nagar, Delhi.

Directed by Nikkhil Advani, Batla House is written by Ritesh Shah who previously helmed the hit film Pink. The movie is John and Nikkhil’s second collaboration, the two have earlier worked together in Salaam-E-Ishq.
