Although the film raked in a decent Rs 15.55 crore on its opening day, the business seems to have been suffered because of the clash with Jagan Shakti's space drama.

John Abraham had earlier told Firstpost that he feels despite the box office clash, both Mission Mangal and Batla House have enough meat to draw audiences to theatres. "I think the good thing is that there are two very credible films that are releasing this Independence Day. Talking about business, I am confident that there is enough business for two films on that day, and both me and Akshay know this. I think it’s great for the audience, and the winner ultimately is the audience as they get to choose between two very,  hopefully, good films that day," Abraham was quoted as saying.

Nikkhil Advani, who has directed the cop thriller, said in March 2018 that he has acquired all the necessary NOCs (No Objection Certificates) for the film that follows the encounters of Indian Mujahideen terrorists in the Batla House locality of the national capital. Two suspected terrorists were reportedly gunned down in the September 2008 shootout, two others were arrested while one accused escaped.

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 by essaying officer Sanjay Kumar Yadav, who led the encounter.

Batla House is the second collaboration of Advani and Abraham after Salaam-E-Ishq. The film also stars Mrunal Thakur, Prakash Raj, and Ravi Kishan in pivotal roles.
