Batla House is looking like an intriguing thriller. They respect each other’s body of work and even the fans are not indulging in mud-slinging, so its a healthy weekend at the box office,” he said. The film stars Mrunal Thakur opposite John Abraham. Advertising
Talking about Batla House and the possibility of it enjoying a good run in theaters, film trade analyst Girish Johar said, “John has been doing very sensible and hard-hitting films. So, I feel its a little less massy but definitely intriguing.”
Johar believes, “Independence Day is a big holiday and whatever films are released during this time gets a huge jump in the collections.” Hence, with word of mouth being the key factor for the Nikkhil Advani directorial, he is “expecting Rs 13-15 crore collection for Batla House on the day of its release and the total collection for Independence Day might be around Rs 35-40 crore.”
Batla House is based on the controversial Batla House encounter case of 2008. They are both coming as ‘desi boys’ as they like to call it. The thriller will face a box office clash with Akshay Kumar starrer Mission Mangal, but it’s a healthy competition, suggests Girish Johar. He is trying to show one perspective of the encounter that happened. But unlike last year, when John delivered Satyameva Jayate which was more of a mass entertainer, this one is more urban and niche kind of a film. 0
