Known for doing patriotic movies like Madras Cafe and Parmanu – The Story Of Pokhran and his latest release Satyameva Jayate, John will once again be seen donning the patriotism on his sleeve in Batla House by essaying police officer Sanjay Kumar Yadav, who led the Batla House encounter.
Abraham also shared his look in the film as a police officer, with phrases such as ‘India’s most decorated, controversial cop’, ‘Indian Mujahideen’ and ‘Judicial conspiracy’ in the foreground.
