What inspired Bhushan Kumar to bankroll Batla House?

Bhushan Kumar

By: Mohnish Singh

Bhushan Kumar is undeniably a visionary. He knows the pulse of the audience and creates content keeping in mind their varied taste. Aside from ruling the Indian music landscape, Bhushan Kumar has also established T-Series as a moviemaking behemoth which has been producing one successful film after another.

Though T-Series has been making films for quite some time now, it has sort of re-written filmmaking rules in the past few years. The production house takes a keen interest in telling stories that are not artificial and connect to the masses.

After the success of Bharat (2019), Bhushan Kumar is coming up with yet another patriotic film titled Batla House. Starring John Abraham and Mrunal Thakur in principal roles, the movie has been creating the right noise ever since it was officially announced.

Batla House is inspired by the Operation Batla House, which took place in 2008 against Indian Mujahideen terrorists in Delhi. When asked what led him to bankroll the film, Bhushan Kumar reveals, “First and foremost, what made me associate with this project was Ritesh Shah’s script. He has done thorough research about this entire episode and has weaved all the facts together in an engaging narrative. The film starts with a bang and maintains the tempo throughout. Secondly, I strongly felt that it is an important story that needs to be told, especially because of what happened after the encounter. It is a very sensitive case with two sides to it and we have tried to cover everything in this film and have kept it real.”

Directed by Nikkhil Advani, Batla House is scheduled to hit the marquee on 15th August, 2019.
