The film has to pick up today (Sunday) to reach the Rs 50 crore mark by the end of its (extended) opening weekend run at the Box Office. The film was released in 2,750 screens across the country with 9,750 shows, and strongly marked its hold in 325 centres overseas.

John-starrer thriller drama is inspired by the real Batla House encounter that took place almost a decade ago on September 19, 2008, officially known as Operation Batla House. The 'Romeo Akbar Walter' actor is portraying the role of Sanjeev Kumar Yadav, who spearheaded the encounter.
The incident took place against Indian Mujahideen (IM) terrorists in Batla House locality in Jamia Nagar, Delhi. Directed by Nikkhil Advani, the film is written by Ritesh Shah who previously helmed the hit film 'Pink'.
