A source quoted in a media report, "Yes, Saif was considered for this role. He also heard the script, but he never officially signed the film because things didn’t work out for reasons best known to Saif and Nikkhil. Nikkhil, who has also worked with John in Satyamev Jayate, felt John would do justice to this role and later approached him for the same,"
John Abraham starrer Batla House is based on the true incident that took place in Jamia Nagar of Delhi in 2008. It was the encounter of Delhi Police for terrorist living there. However, later it became a controversy and some even called it a false encounter.
