The makers of John Abraham’s Batla House have got clearance from the Delhi High Court to release the film tomorrow. Directed by Nikkhil Advani, Batla House is based on true events. There were petitions filed against the film in the Delhi High Court that were pending. However, now all seems well for the makers. The petitioners wanted to stall the release of the film. But the Delhi High Court has given a clean chit to the makers. The film hits the theatres on Independence Day tomorrow.
John Abraham expressed his gratitude to the honourable court and shared a heartfelt note on behalf of his team on Instagram. He wrote, “IMPORTANT NOTE… The makers of Batla House are overwhelmed and grateful to the Delhi High Court and its esteemed officers for viewing the sundry petitions against our film, in favour of releasing the film as planned and unhindered on August 15, 2019, Independence Day. The makers have conceded to the minor changes ordered by the esteemed court and are working tirelessly to have these reflected immediately. The makers also confirm that they were glad to do so to ensure all sentiments and rights of under-trials are not influenced or impacted in any way, as per best efforts. The makers are grateful to all the partners of Batla House for their cooperation and support during this time. We now look forward to releasing our film as intended and hope audiences will enjoy this representation of an event that history should never forget. – John Abraham, Nikkhil Advani, Bhushan Kumar, Madhu Bhojwani, Monisha Advani”
