Ending months of speculation over his upcoming movie, John Abraham announced that his new movie Parmanu The Story of Pokhran will be released on December 8. After appearing in a number of interesting projects like Madras Cafe and Force, John Abraham will appear in the movie that tells the story of India’s second string of nuclear tests in Pokhran in 1998 when Atal Bihari Vajpayee was the prime minister. The film finished shooting last week, and a teaser poster was released to kickstart some buzz for the movie.
Speaking to the media, Abraham said he was excited to be a part of the project that seeks to retell the story of how ordinary citizens, armymen and scientists alike, came together to overcome the weight of the arms and technology embargo that had been slapped on India after the first nuclear tests in 1974. Their extraordinary efforts helped pull off one of the most extraordinary coups in modern history when India tested the thermonuclear hydrogen bomb in a show of its military might to the world.
Abraham also added that although the movie is based on real-life events, it will also be entertaining for the audience. The film has been directed by Abhishek Sharma(who also directed Tere Bin Laden), and will be co-produced by John Abraham himself. Besides Abraham, Diane Penty has been cast as the other lead in the movie. The film has been shot in multiple locations in Jaisalmer and Pokhran, including RTDC Midway, Aada Bazaar, Gandhi Chowk Main Market and Gomat railway station. The movie is being produced by KriArj Entertainment and JA Entertainment.
