Saif reportedly read the script for the film, but never signed it because things did not work out between him and director Nikkhil Advani.

John Abraham’s Batla House has created all the right noise ahead of its release. John’s latest film will attempt to unravel the truth behind the 2008 encounter with alleged terrorists that took place at Batla House in Delhi’s Jamia Nagar.

We now hear that Saif Ali Khan was also being considered for the same part before John got on board. A source close to the project reveals, “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.”

Alongside John, Batla House also features Mrunal Thakur. The film is scheduled to release on August 15.
