Diana Penty recently made a statement on her film Parmanu – The Story of Pokhran, which also stars John Abraham and said that it is best as a stand-alone film. She made this statement during an interview with news agency IANS.
“The thought of a sequel has never crossed my mind to be honest. I personally feel a film like ‘Parmanu’ is best as a stand alone film. The thrill, intensity and impact would be tough to recreate in a sequel,” said Diana. “Plus, it’s a film based on true events — the nuclear tests that India conducted in 1998 in Pokhran, Rajasthan. It was one of India’s most significant events post independence. Our attempt was to depict these events through the film, in as true and realistic a manner as possible right up to the moment of the blasts. For me, the film has reached its closure,” she added.
In the film, Diana is seen playing the role of an Army officer. The film is based on the series of nuclear tests in Pokhran in 1998. After much delay caused by a lockdown between John Abraham’s production banner JA Entertainment and KriArj Entertainment, Parmanu – The Story Of Pokhran opened on May 25. The film will air on August 15 on Zee Cinema.
Diana will soon be seen in Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi, a sequel to Happy Bhag Jayegi. Helmed by Mudassar Aziz, the film also stars Sonakshi Sinha, Piyush Mishra, Ali Fazal and Jassi Gill in pivotal roles. Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi is slated to release on August 24.
