John Abraham ‘relieved and happy’ with Batla House’s success

Actor John Abraham, whose film ‘Batla House‘ hit theatres across the country says the film made him feels “relieved and happy” even though the movie faced a few issues during its release.

The actor, who put up a stellar performance in patriotic films ‘Satyamev Jayate’, ‘Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran,’ is thrilled with audience reaction for ‘Batla House.’ “I am relieved and I am happy with the outcome. Yes, there were a few problems that we faced with the release, but since the results are good I am happy with the audience’s reaction that I am seeing on social media and elsewhere,” said the actor. “The best compliment that I remember is ‘the film is so much better than the ‘Saki Saki’ song and the trailer’ and I believe it compliments like these that are encouraging and make us feel good about our work,” John added.

On being asked about Jagan Shakti’s ‘Mission Mangal, which was released on the same day, John said, “I am really happy for myself and Akshay. I wish both films to do great and make us all happy.” Independence Day proved to be a great day for Akshay Kumar’s ‘Mission Mangal’ and John Abraham-starrer ‘Batla House’! Both the movies performed remarkably well on the first day of their release. ‘Mission Mangal’ managed to surpass the first-day collections of ‘Batla House’ by minting Rs. 29.16 crore at the domestic box office. The latter collected Rs. 14.59 crore at the ticket counters.
