After releasing his look, John Abraham on Saturday now shared the first poster of his upcoming film ‘Batla House’.

John unveiled the poster on social media  and wrote, “’95 mins that took 8yrs to be resolved and changed his life forever.’ The story of India’s most Decorated/Controversial Cop. #BatlaHouse”.

The film is based on the real Batla House encounter that took place a decade ago on September 19. The ‘Parmanu’ star will portray the role inspired by Sanjeev Kumar Yadav, who spearheaded the encounter. 

Talking about the film, John said, “Being recognized for films like ‘Madras Cafe’ and ‘Parmanu’, I automatically gravitate towards scripts like ‘Batla House’. However, that also means that the script needs to live up to those standards. With ‘Batla House’, Ritesh Shah (writer) blew me over with his precision in the storytelling as well as the emotional roller coaster of the characters. I am truly excited to bring this story alive to audiences.”

The film will hit the theatres on August 15, 2019.
