A Nikkhil Advani directorial ‘Batla House’, which was released on Independence Day 2019, competing with ‘Mission Mangal’, did not do very well in its first week. But the film, which also stars Mrunal Thakur, Ravi Kishan, Manish Chaudhari and Prakash Raj in pivotal roles, recorded a good second-weekend collection at the box office.
It has grossed good numbers, higher than many successful films of the year.
According to the latest report on the Boxofficeindia.com, the film earned a total of Rs 6.75 crore on its eleventh day at the box office. The film has collected a total of Rs 16.25 crore in its second weekend. The film has managed to collect a total of Rs 75.75 crore in eleven days at the box office.
It looked a tremendous task for the film to score higher with the opening day number and especially with the competition of a bigger film. However, the film has come through strongly with a good hold on weekdays and a superb second weekend.
In the film, John Abraham plays an assistant commissioner of police (ACP) Sanjay Kumar, who leads the infamous Batla House encounter of September 2008 that saw two students being gunned down by Delhi Police on suspicion of being linked with a terror outfit in the aftermath of serial blasts in the city.
