Despite the fact, Saif Ali Khan’s Rangoon did not perform well at the box office, but he kept himself busy with films like Kaalakaandi, Chef, and Baazaar. And yet, the actor has managed to bag one more role and this time it would be intense. Soon, Saif Ali Khan would be playing a lead character in Nikhil Advani’s next action thriller, Batla House, which would be based on real events. This would be Nikhil Advani’s third film in association with Saif Ali Khan after Kal Ho Na Ho and Baazaar.
