The trailer of Nikhil Advani‘s latest film is here.
‘Inspired by true events labelled as untrue’, the film focuses on the events of 2008 Batla House fake encounter case and whether it was a cover-up or a real victory for the Delhi police. John Abraham is beefed-up police officer Sanjay Kumar who led the encounter and is subsequently labelled a monster, accused of killing innocent students. He then sets out to clear his name and prove that those killed were, in fact, terrorists. It looks like a compelling thriller, with the usual Bollywood routines such as excessive action scenes and item songs.
Written by Ritesh Shah of Pink and Airlift fame, Batla House marks Advani’s return as director after his two releases in 2015, Katti Batti and Hero, following which he moved onto his TV projects P.O.W. Bandi Yuddh Ke and the upcoming Hasmukh starring Vir Das.
Produced by Monisha Advani, John Abraham, Madhu Bhojwani and Sandeep Leyzell, Batla House is currently slated for release on August 15.
