The dispute between the makers of Parmanu movie and the production house Kriarj has taken another dark turn as a FIR has been lodged against John Abraham by the company. Yesterday, it was announced that the movie is going to be released on May 4, as a tribute to the 20th anniversary for the Pokhran tests. JA entertainment had ended the agreement between the two parties claiming that the latter had been responsible for “material breaches”. The official statement for the FIR that has been lodged by Prerna Arora is as follows, “FIR has been registered by Khar Police Station against John Abraham and his company JA Ent after criminal complaint was filed by Kriarj Entertainment for commission of various criminal offences including cheating, breach of trust, fraud, misappropriation of funds and copyright infringement due to John and his company duping KriArj Entertainment out of the crores of rupees invested by KriArj Entertainment towards the production of the film Parmanu.”
Kriarj entertainment has vehemently denied the accusations that have been leveled against them, and in return they have stated that JA entertainment is making false accusations against them.
Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran, which is directed by Abhishek Sharma, is based on the Nuclear tests that were conducted in Pokhran, Rajasthan, in 1998. John Abraham has the central role in the movie, while Diana Penty is playing the female protagonist. Boman Irani also has a supporting role in the flick. There is no indication as to what the JA entertainment’s next step is going to be or how John is going to tackle the situation.
