Producer – Director Nikkhil Advani, who earlier directed D-Day and also produced a patriotic film like Airlift is known to make real cinema. After six years of D-Day, Nikkhil has worn the director's cap for Batla House in the genre he immensely likes starring John Abraham. The film is inspired by the incidents amidst the encounter that took place in Delhi's Batla House in 2008.
While the film was majorly shot in Mumbai, Delhi and Lucknow, Nikkhil was keen in shooting at real locations. The team shot at actual locations in Lucknow to keep it authentic for the audiences. They turned the local street of Lucknow into the Batla House area of Delhi. As the local residents were unaware about the details of the shoot, the filmmaker used guerrilla style to capture the reactions of the on-lookers to the encounter taking place which added a different feel to the story.
Speaking of the experience, Nikkhil said, "A big part of what really transpired on that fateful day in Batla House was the reactions of the neighbourhood and the residents of that particular building. I’ve been told most thought that a TV serial shoot that happened a couple of days before, was shooting again. It was only much later that they realised what was happening and the immensity of the whole operation."
Batla House also starring Mrunal Thakur and Ravi Kishan, is directed by Nikkhil Advani. Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Divya Khosla Kumar, Krishan Kumar (T-Series), Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani (Emmay Entertainment), John Abraham (JA Entertainment) and Sandeep Leyzell (Bake My Cake Films), the film will release on August 15.
