Here are the latest box office figures for Batla House.

Known for appearing in patriotic dramas like Parmanu - The Story Of Pokhran, Satyameva Jayate, and his last release Romeo Akbar Walter, John has once again dabbled in the genre with Batla House.

The film sees Abraham as DCP Sanjay Kumar Yadav (based on the real-life character of Sanjeev Kumar Yadav). The police officer is the recipient of eight President Gallantry Awards.

Batla House follows the encounters of alleged Indian Mujahideen terrorists in the Batla House locality of New Delhi. Two suspected terrorists were reportedly gunned down in the September 2008 shootout and two others were arrested while one accused escaped.

An accused in the ongoing Batla House encounter case had filed a plea demanding a stay on the film's release, saying it would adversely affect his trial. However, the film was greenlit by the Delhi High Court after the makers agreed to some modifications, according to India Today.

Batla House is jointly produced by director Nikkhil Advani's Emmay Entertainment and Bhushan Kumar's T-Series. It is Advani and Abraham's second collaboration after Salaam-E-Ishq. The film also stars Mrunal Thakur, Prakash Raj, and Ravi Kishan in pivotal roles.
