Mrunal Thakur is now gearing up for the release of her next Batla House. In the movie, she is paired opposite John Abraham who plays the character of DCP Sanjay Kumar. Inspired by true events around the infamous Batla House encounter of 2008, Batla House stars Mrunal as the wife of Sanjay Kumar.

In the film, Mrunal had to perform a scene and she says it has been the most challenging scene for her in the entire film. The actress had to assemble and dismantle a gun in no time for a scene. “It was a delight to work with Nikkhil (Advani) Sir, especially also because it is such a well-researched film. One of the most challenging scenes in the movie was when I had to load the gun with bullets without even seeing it and also say my dialogues and what made it challenging was that Nikkhil Sir wanted me to do this scene a certain way.”
