Trade experts mention the film raked in Rs 7.21 crore on Sunday (25 August), and received a boost due to the partial holiday for Janmashtami festivities along with the extended weekend.

Batla House is based on a real-life incident about the Delhi spot where a shootout took place in 2008. John essays the role of Sanjay Kumar Yadav, based on police officer Sanjeev Kumar Yadav who led the encounter. The film also stars Mrunal Thakur, Prakash Raj, and Ravi Kishan in pivotal roles.
