Actor John Abraham, who was last seen on silver screen in Satyameva Jayate, has shared the first look of his forthcoming film Batla House.

The film Batla House is based on a real-life incident about the Delhi area where a shootout took place in 2008.

Taking to his Twitter handle, John posted the film’s poster and wrote, “Every story has two points of view. One wrong. The other right. But what if the lines are blurred? Very very blurred!”

He also tweeted, “Encounters: 70 Cases: 33 Convictions: 22 Gallantry Awards: 9 Accusations: 1 “When everything you’ve achieved could be wiped out in that one moment.” The story of India’s Most Decorated/Controversial Cop @itsBhushanKumar @nikkhiladvani @TSeries @EmmayEntertain @johnabrahament.”

In the poster, John can be seen in a police uniform and is surrounded by several news headlines about the encounter.

John has been known for doing films with a flavour of patriotism — Madras Café, Parmanu—The Story of Pokhran, Satyameva Jayate to name a few. In Batla House, he will be playing police officer Sanjay Kumar Yadav who led the Batla House encounter in 2008.

Director Nikkhil Advani tweeted, “Have waited for a long time for this story to be told. Unveiling an explosive account of one of the most controversial events to have rocked modern India.”

The film releases on August 15, 2019, and will clash with Ranbir Kapoor’s Brahmastra and Rajkummar Rao’s Made in China. jo
