Nikkhil Advani has been working on receiving permissions to make a film on Operation Batla House!
The film was announced a year back and will star Saif Ali Khan as the lead.
Almost a year ago, Nikkhil Advani announced his upcoming project with Saif Ali Khan which was touted to shed light on the Operation Batla House. Operation Batla House is inspired by the 2008 real-life encounter. It happened between police officials and two suspected terrorists of the Indian Mujahideen group in Jamia Nagar, Delhi. As both, Nikkhil and Saif got busy with their other commitments, the project was put on the backburner. But now, Nikkhil, who will produce it, has been working on receiving permissions for the film.
The operation was led by Inspector and encounter specialist Mohan Chand Sharma who too lost his life in this shootout. However, the aftermath raised questions if it was a fake encounter or real. But later, with ample evidence, the court ruled out the possibility of the fake encounter in this matter.
Saif is expected to play the leading role of Mohan Chand Sharma in Operation Batla House. There are also rumours that Sonakshi Sinha too is expected to play the female lead in this action drama. Recent reports state that Operation Batla House is expected to go on floor in September.
