John Abraham enters Nikkhil Advani's BATLA HOUSE after 11 years

Abraham will be playing DCP Sanjeev Kumar Yadav, who was awarded a President Gallantry Award for this mission.

Film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted, "John Abraham and director Nikkhil Advani team up again". The film will be directed by Nikkhil Advani.

About selecting Abraham for the role, Nikkhil told Mirror, "Sanjeev Kumar Yadav wanted a physically and mentally strong actor and John fits the bill". Were the five boys inside the building really terrorists or were they students? John Abraham and Saif Ali Khan are confirmed for the project, however, the rest of the cast remains undisclosed. The actor has now signed on to play the lead in their next film, based on the Batla House encounters in 2008. So he chose to rope in John, whose flash of dimples, according to Nikkhil, makes him stand out from the crowd. Was the encounter real or fake? What followed was a nail-biting encounter, during which two cops and two suspected terrorists were killed.

Lucasfilm Would Love to Eventually Make a Lando Spin-Off
The French magazine Premiere recently interviewed Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy at the Cannes Film Festival. She added: 'Of course, there are still so many stories to tell about Han and Chewbacca but Lando will be next'.

The film will bring the real-life incident of "Batla House Encounter", officially known as Operation Batla House, to the silver screen. One from that of Police, from that of the people present there who believed that the bullet were flying for the shooting of the tv serial Swabhimaan which was being shot in the vicinity just a couple of days back and the actual angle. "The biggest challenge will be to make him blend in". The operation was against the Indian Mujahideen terrorists in the Batla House locality in Jamia Nagar in Delhi. The latter is a film that is now on floors with John as the lead alongside Manoj Bajpayee and is produced by Nikkhil Advani.

John on the other hand is excited to play the role of the police officer, who fought valiantly for 10 years to restore his name and credibility.
