John Abraham starrer ‘Batla House’ is based on a real-life event that took place almost a decade ago on September 19, 2008. It was officially known as Operation Batla House. The movie claims to reveal the reality and the truth behind the Batla House operation. But some don’t agree with the movie entirely.

Maya Sharma, widow of Delhi Police Inspector Mohan Chand Sharma (martyred in the Batla House encounter on September 19, 2008) has decided to continue the fight to protect her husband’s image and reputation. She has also served a legal notice on the makers of the movie ‘Batla House’.

Sharma told IANS, “I will not watch the movie. It portrays incorrect facts and figures,” she continued, “I had served a legal notice to the film’s makers to ensure that Mohan’s name and character is not depicted wrongly in the movie. Recently, I saw the trailer online and it paints a different picture. I feel hurt. It was a team of people.

If they (filmmakers) were fair and wanted to portray what they have done then they should have called it ‘Post Batla House’. I object. You can’t take away one’s credit, supreme sacrifice of my husband,” said Maya whose husband was an encounter specialist and one of the most decorated officers of the Delhi Police.

She expressed her disappointment that the makers of ‘Batla House’ didn’t approach her before or during the making of the movie to collect information about her husband. Maya said, “They have neither spoken to me, nor approached me. All the communication that has happened, happened only after I sent a legal notice last year.

‘Batla House’ will be releasing on Independence Day (15th August) and will be clashing with ‘Mission Mangal’.
