"In this situation, when Maharashtra Government has decided to cut down 33 hectares of greenery at Arey Milk Colony, it makes me wonder if we are heading towards the right direction. I am opposed to the coastal road and 33 hectares of land being cut!", John Abraham stated.

He further added: "It is ridiculous to see how they are displacing animals, trees as well as people living in these areas for metro rail."

Until now, 82,000 objection letter was sent to BMC and MMRC from the environment conservatives and affected community. There are a large number of Bollywood celebrities who come out in support the region such as Randeep Hooda, Adil Hussain, Dia Mirza, Ashok Pandit, Pooja Bedi...

Also at the event which has the presence of Batla house's team include director Nikkhil Advani, producer Bhushan Kumar, actor Mrunal Thakur, and Nora Faheti, John gave a piece of his mind about the water-logging crisis in Maharashtra as well as water problem in the area.

"We are not doing good water harvesting in the city and that is surely creating the water crisis. If we can harvest water rightly, the city and the country can have enough water. When the rain does not happen at the right time, we get worried and then when it rains in the city (Mumbai), it is flooded which obviously we do not like. The rivers are going to dry up in 30 years if the rain is not happening properly and water crisis will only increase. So it is a serious problem," the actor concluded.

Batla House is an action thriller film inspired by a real-life event in which John Abraham starred a police officer. The film is slated to hit the cinema on 15 August 2019.
