John Abraham’s Parmanu has been in the news over the last few days. After multiple delays, the filmmaker recently released the new poster of the film along with the release date. The John Abraham – Diana Penty film will finally release on May 4. And With less than a month to go for the film to release, John Abraham released a one-minute teaser of Parmanu: The Story Of Pokhran. The teaser of the film talks about India’s emergence as a nuclear state.
John’s Parmanu is based on how India achieved the status of becoming a nuclear power. It is based on a true story in 1998 when the country became a nuclear state after carrying out several nuclear tests in Pokhran in 1998. And while all of this was done, it was kept as a secret due to the political and international scenario in the country. John plays an army man in the film who played an important role in making these nuclear tests a success. In the teaser, we can also see footage of the 1971 war and the 1983 World Cup. Take a look at the one-minute teaser of Parmanu that was released by the actor recently.
The film’s release date got pushed thrice. It was to originally release on December 8 last year. It was then pushed to February 23, 2018 and then to April 6. It is now scheduled for a May 4 release. This day was announced by the actor who got intro a controversy with KriArj Entertainment who is co-producing the film. While talking about the incident, John told Mumbai Mirror, “They announced the release date thrice without our consent. We had to move each time because delay in payments led to delay in post-production but how do you explain that to someone who does not understand the process of filmmaking and asks what is pre and post-production? They have defaulted on every payment, sometimes stopping payments when our boys were sent to the bank and giving wrong UTRs (Unique Transaction Reference).”
