Sanjeev Kumar Yadav has eight President Gallantry Awards to his name, including one for the Batla House Encounter operation.

John Abraham has been roped in for director Nikkhil Advani's next film which will be based on the real life encounter at Batla House. Yadav (Abraham) reportedly had to fight conspiracy theories and face judicial enquiries for years following, Digvijay Singh's, the then Congress general secretary, verdict of the encounter being fake. According to a Pune Mirror report, the film will go on floors in September and will be shot across Delhi, Lucknow, Jaipur, Nepal and Mumbai. As per reports, two suspected terrorists were gunned down and two other suspects were arrested while one accused escaped that day. Were the five boys inside the building really terrorists or were they students? So he made a decision to rope in John, whose flash of dimples, according to Nikkhil, makes him stand out from the crowd. Encounter specialist and Inspector Mohan Chand Sharma, who led the police action, was also martyred during the incident. "The biggest challenge will be to make him blend in". He mentioned that the encounter case will be seen from three different perspectives, one of the police, one of those present at the location and the real picture. John Abraham's upcoming release is Parmanu.
