John Abraham has been awaiting the release of his film Parmanu -The Story of Pokhran. The actor took the legal route and filed separate complaints on the grounds of cheating, breach of trust, defamation, and offenses under the Information Technology Act against Kriarj Entertainment’s Prernaa Arora. Parmanu has been delayed a lot since December. The film will not only be able to retain its release date to be May 25 but Bombay High Court ruled in favour of John Abraham and the association with KriArj Entertainment stands cancelled.
Parmanu – The Story Of Pokhran, based on India’s nuclear test in 1998, is not anti- Pakistan said John Abraham during the trailer launch on May 11. At the film’s trailer launch, the makers along with co-producer John Abraham were asked about their plans to release the film in Pakistan. He insisted, “It is not an anti-Pakistan film in any way”. John said, “Yes, we are (releasing the movie in Pakistan). This is not an anti-Pakistan film, it is a pro-India film. So, from the beginning we were very clear that it is a film about India and we want to celebrate the story. If we start thinking about other markets, then we will be compromising on our film. Our intention was to tell the story and we do not want to deviate from that.”
Written by Saiwyn Quadras and Sanyukta Shaikh Chawla, Parmanu – The Story of Pokhran also features Diana Penty, Boman Irani and Yogendra Tikku. Directed by Abhishek Sharma, the film is based on the biggest secret mission ever undertaken by the Indian Government where five nuclear bombs were tested in the Pokhran range in 1998. It will release on May 25 clashing with Harshvardhan Kapoor starrer Bhavesh Joshi Superhero.
