Saif Ali Khan And Director Nikhil Advani Collaborate For A Film Based On A Real-Life Incident?

Director Nikhil Advani and actor Saif Ali Khan had worked magic on screen back in 2003 in ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’ which also starred Shahrukh Khan and Preity Zinta in the lead roles.

The duo has once again collaborated for ‘Operation Batla House’ which had been announced a year ago and was not in the news for a long time. However, the duo was busy with their respective commitments and now the time has finally come. Nikhil Advani will be producing ‘Operation Batla House’ which will be starring the Nawab of the industry. There have been speculations revolving around this project and the female lead is rumoured to be the ‘Force 2’ actress Sonakshi Sinha.

The action-packed movie is based on the theme of a 2008 real-life encounter which took place in Delhi. The incident happened in the Jamia Nagar area of the city where two suspected Indian Mujahideen group members were hidden and the operation was led by Inspector and encounter specialist Sanjeev Kumar Yadav. After the encounter, the issue was raised whether this was a real or a staged encounter. Though there was ample of concrete evidence, the court ruled out the possibility of a fake encounter in this matter.


Before the shooting which starts from September this year as per the recent reports, Nikhil Advani has been working hard on the permissions for the film. The film is based on a sensitive topic which has the tendency to create trouble during the shooting or at the time of the release. Reportedly, the filmmaker has taken a No-Objection Certificate from all the concerned parties which can easily smoothen the making and release of the film.

Saif Ali Khan is currently shooting for ‘Baazaar’ which is based on the Indian stock market which is also written and produced by Nikhil Advani which will be releasing this year.
