Abraham will portray the role of DCP Sanjeev Kumar Yadav, who has won eight President Gallantry Awards.

Bollywood Actor cum producer is all set for his second collaboration with director Nikkhil Advani for his upcoming project Batla House.

Earlier John and Nikkhil worked together in Salaam-E-Ishq: A Tribute to Love, which was released in 2007.

Nikkhil Advani made his directorial debut in 2003 with Kal Ho Naa Ho starring Shah Rukh Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Preity Zinta.


He also reasoned about it adding that to play the character of Sanjeev Kumar Yadav, he wanted someone who was physically and mentally strong.

The ghastly encounter between 7 members of the Delhi police and 5 IM terrorists took place a week after five serial blasts rocked Delhi on 13 September 2008, killing at least 30 people and injuring over 100.

The report further mentioned that John Abraham has been roped in for the film. So he chose to rope in John, whose flash of dimples, according to Nikkhil, makes him stand out from the crowd. "The biggest challenge will be to make him blend in". The film will tell the story of one most-talked about police operations in the recent times, i.e the encounter at L-Batla House. "We want to make films that are very relevant and topical". In the incident, two suspected terrorists were killed, while two others were arrested, and one accused, who managed to escape.

The film will bring the real-life incident of "Batla House Encounter", officially known as Operation Batla House, to the silver screen. So, are you guys excited for Batla House? John Abraham will be seen next in his own home production, Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran, which is based on India's 1998 Pokhran nuclear tests, that it successfully carried out away from the eyes of the American government.
