After Airlift and currently working together on forthcoming Satyameva Jayate, Bhushan Kumar and Nikkhil Advani have decided to come together yet again to produce Batla House.The movie will be directed by Nikkhil Advani. 

The duo have their Satyameva Jayate actor John Abraham playing the role of Sanjeev Kumar Yadav as the one who spearheaded the Batla House encounter. The thriller drama will be written by Ritesh Shah who has worked with Nikkhil before.

The trio have had a great working relation during the making of ‘Satyameva Jayate’. And to make the most of this, the makers have decided to jointly produce Batla House together with John.

Speaking about his next venture, John Abraham said, “I have always been drawn to the intrigue and drama that real life holds. Small events, big ones, a human experience that resonates with a larger reality. Batla House is on point with this pursuit I’m almost obsessed with it. I am aware of Nikkhil’s talent but more than that I am sure of his intent. SMJ has started a relationship that has been wonderful between Emmay and JA Entertainment. We will work night and day to make a special film. Bhushan Kumar and our studio partner, T-Series understands our vision and I am hoping this partnership is the beginning to many more.’’

Nikkhil Advani, Emmay Entertainment, says, “Given his penchant for excelling in films of this genre, John was absolutely the right choice to play Yadav, an unassuming man of few words and a long list of extraordinary achievements. The film which is a fictional account inspired by the real life encounter will not be from one man’s perspective only, but will be seen from three perspectives? that of the police, those present near the location, and the real picture. I am glad Bhushanji and I are working together again for Batla House and it is so heartening to find a studio which is open to different genres and content-driven cinema.’’
