A new poster launched by the producers..
MUMBAI; August, 2017: It’s a wrap on the shoot of John Abraham – Diana Penty starrer, Parmanu- The Story of Pokhran. The film, produced by KriArj Entertainment, Zee Studios, Kyta Productions and John’s JA Entertainment, went on floors in May this year and completed its shoot last week. The producers announced the wrap on the film with the release of yet another intriguing poster of the thriller.
John Abraham, who plays the lead in the film and is also the co-producer, sounded ecstatic as he shared, “Parmanu is an ode to the army and scientists, who although ordinary people, truly accomplished extraordinary feats in the face of adversity to ensure that India finds its due place on the world nuclear map. It is a powerful human story of ordinary citizens who changed the trajectory of the country. It is so special to me because it combines all the aspects of film making that really speak to me – a thrilling edge of the seat plotline.”
Apart from John, the film stars Diana Penty, Boman Irani and is directed by Abhishek Sharma. While the premise of the film is based on true events, the characters are fictitious.
Prernaa Arora and Arjun N Kapoor of KriArj Entertainment said, “What we truly want to achieve through this film is pride for our true heroes-. Jai Jawan, Jai Vigyan! For us at KriArj, Parmanu is partly a dream and partly a need to remind the people of India of the unsung heroes behind our nuclear prowess- our army and our scientists. After Rustom, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, this film is yet another step in our journey to make good, engaging cinema that is not just entertaining but also evokes pride in our country. Despite the ambitious project, in terms of recreating India of the 90s, we are glad that we are completely on schedule for December 8th release of this edge-of-the-seat thriller.”
Parmanu- the Story of Pokhran, will release worldwide
on 8th December, 2017
