Sending good wishes to the team, Naidu wrote that the makers explained him that the motivation behind the film was to uncover the truth of the incident that took place 11 years ago in Delhi.

Replying to Naidu's tweet, John said that he was "privileged to have met the honorable Vice President."

Batla House is based on a real-life incident about the Delhi spot where a shootout took place in 2008. Nikkhil, who is directing the cop thriller, had said in March 2018 that he has acquired all the necessary NOCs for the film that follows the encounters of alleged 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.

The film is slated to release this Independence Day and will clash with Akshay Kumar's Mission Mangal. Season 2 of Netflix's first Indian Original, Sacred Games, is also releasing on the same day.
