The John Abraham starrer film Batla House is all set to hit the screen this I Day, but as per the recent buzz, the film seems to be a legal tangle. As per reports, two of the accused in the Batla House encounter case have knocked the doors of Delhi HIgh Court asking its intervention in the release of the film. The film is based on the Batla House encounter carried out by the Delhi Police way back in 2008. The accused who have filed the case against the film include Ariz Khan and Shahzad Ahmed.
They are likely to be seen in the next hearing by the Delhi High Court. The petition has demanded the court the screening of the film before its release in the screens. The plea also said that the film’s posters and promos have been claiming that it is based on true events which depict that they are bringing out the truth before the public by showing the fake encounter as genuine.
The plea further said that the Court has already given them the clean chit and thus the film is trying to portray something negative about them. This will further hamper their lives and thus would create some prejudice against the two despite getting the free and fair trial. It said that the film is trying to set up a connection between two incidents – Batla house encounter and Delhi Serial blasts. The film is directed by Nikkhil Advani, while it is based on the encounter carried out by Delhi Police in 2008.
