Recently, in an interview, John Abraham talked about how good films are being made on real-life characters and it is challenging as they are breaking the stereotypes surrounding around the cops.
John Abraham talked about the pressure of playing the real-life character. He said:
“ I think the pressure is actually more. I am playing ACP Sanjeev Kumar in this film who is a real-life operating officer. In fact, he still operates from Delhi so the pressure is a lot more. I want the recognition from him that, hey you played me right. So more than anyone else, I want a tick from him.”
John Abraham made a very valid point on the real-life cops and reel-life cops. He also highlighted the fact of how police officers actually go through a lot of stress and trauma and they should go for counseling. He said:
“I think not only police but we all need counseling sometimes in our lives. Humko lagta hai bimaari hai nahi, karna chahie ya hum darke kisi ko bolte nahi hai ki hum counselling ke liye jaate hai but in the case of cops it’s even more. The whole not knowing if they will come back, don’t have holidays, they are always overworked, upar se they are not respected like you guys respect military and army, why? Because there is this stereotypes attached with the police. You will only be entertained by Singhams and Simmbas but you will not respect the cops and I think Batla House is an opportunity to show the true side of a policeman, the true side of his sacrifice.”

Encounter ka matlab hai Surgical Strike, matlab keeping India Safe… Fark sirf itna hai ki humare borders shahar ke andar hote hai… @mrunalofficial2016 #RaviKishan @nikkhiladvani @writish1 @tseriesfilms @its_bhushankumar @divyakhoslakumar #KrishanKumar @emmayentertainment @onlyemmay @madhubhojwani @minnakshidas @sanyukthac @johnabrahament @bakemycakefilms @sandeep_leyzell @shobhnayadav @panorama_studios #APMP @anandpandit @anandpanditmotionpicture
John also talked about how movies based on real-life incidents have become a trend these days. Talking about the same, he said:
“I think be it Article 15, Super 30 and Uri, we are telling good stories now. We would want to believe Batla House will be one of the exceptional stories that have been told. I don’t think it’s a trend, you should make what you believe in. Also, it’s not only true events stories are working, but even fictitious stories are also working. Right now, everything is working on board.”
Batla House is directed by Nikkhil Advani. The movie also stars Mrunal Thakur, Ravi Kishan among others in important roles.
