Here are the latest box office figures for Batla House.

The film 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. John plays  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 is also similar to his previous films Parmanu - The Story Of Pokhran, Satyameva Jayate, and Romeo Akbar Walterwhich have patriotic themes.

As part as research for the thriller, director Nikkhil Advani told Firstpost that he read blogs and articles, and met journalists and cops. The Jamia Milia Islamia Teachers Solidarity Union also helped him by sending everything they had written about the case.

Prior to its Independence Day release, an accused in the ongoing Batla House encounter case had filed a plea demanding a stay on the film, 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'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.
