Actor-producer John Abraham’s much-talked-about film ‘Parmanu The Story of Pokhran’, which is based on the nuclear bomb test explosions conducted by the Indian Army at Pokhran in 1998, has been delayed once again. Earlier scheduled to release on 6th April 2018 alongside Irrfan Khan’s ‘Blackmail’, the edge-of-the-seat thriller will now arrive in cinemas on 4th May 2018.
“Much in line with India’s journey to becoming a nuclear power, our film’s journey to its release has also had its own ups and downs! However, it is perhaps a befitting tribute to the true heroes of our nuclear program- our army and our scientists, that ‘Parmanu’ is releasing in the same month as we celebrate 20 years of Operation Shakti- India’s nuclear test explosions in Pokhran in May 1998. We are extremely proud of the film and what it stands for and can’t wait to take it to our audience on 4th May 2018,” the spokesperson of JA Entertainment said in a statement.
‘Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran’ has faced many hurdles in its release. The film was complete in 2017 itself. Earlier, the makers had locked 8th December 2017 to release the movie. Later, the release date of the film was moved to February 23 and then shifted again to April 6. However, due to some ongoing issues between the co-producers, ‘Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran’ will now release on 4th May 2018
Besides John Abraham, ‘Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran’ also features Diana Penty and Boman Irani in key roles. The film has been directed by ‘Tere Bin Laden’ (2010) fame Abhishek Sharma and produced by John Abraham’s JA Entertainment.
