"John Abraham and director Nikkhil Advani team up again". According to reports, John will play the role of DCP Sanjeev Kumar Yadav, who has won eight President Gallantry Awards.
Actor-producer John Abraham has just about wrapped up the shoot for Emmay Entertainment's Satyamev Jayate, but his partnership with the production house is only beginning.
As for Batla House, we hear that the film will be shot at many locations including Delhi, Jaipur, Lucknow, Mumbai and Nepal. The film will go on floors in September this year and will be shot in Delhi, Mumbai, Jaipur and Nepal. What followed was a nail-biting encounter, during which two cops and two suspected terrorists were killed. Were the five boys inside the building really terrorists or were they students? With a little light on him and a flash of those dimples, John stands out in a crowd. Encounter specialist and Inspector Mohan Chand Sharma, who led the police action, was also martyred during the incident. It was only after Ariz, one of the terrorists, was arrested that Yadav was reportedly vindicated and the fake encounter story was buried. It was one of the most talked-about police operations of recent times. "Nikkhil last directed John in #SalaamEIshq", tweeted film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh. "The biggest challenge will be to make him blend in".
Nearly a decade ago, seven-member Special Cell Team barged into a flat in Batla House, Jamia Nagar in search of Atif Bashir, Chief of the Indian Mujahideen who was behind several bomb blasts between 2003 and 2008. Nikhil Advani is now busy with the production of Satyameva Jayate starring John Abraham and Manoj Bajpayee which releases on 15th Aug 2018.
