Was the encounter real or fake? So he made a decision to rope in John, whose flash of dimples, according to Nikkhil, makes him stand out from the crowd. He further added that the encounter will be shown from three perspectives-"that of the police, those present near the location, many of whom believed that the bullets flying were for the TV serial Swabhimaan, which was being shot in the vicinity just two days ago, and the real picture". "The biggest challenge will be to make him blend in".
Meanwhile, John's upcoming film Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran will hit the screens on May 25.
Nikkhil Advani is back to direction after a while. "We have been doing research on the subject of Batla House for four years, we have NOC from everybody".
