John Abraham, the most handsome hunk of the Bollywood industry who has perfect height, perfect looks and perfect acting skills which make him fit for all the roles he does, is again back with a new movie Parmanu- The Story of Pokhran. The movie has been directed by Abhishek Sharma. A few days ago, the actor-producer John Abraham took to his Twitter account to share the first look of his movie where is seen in a uniform of an army officer and no one can say that he is wearing it just for the sake of the movie as he was looking too good and was looking like a real army officer with perfect physique as a plus point.

The audience has earlier too witnessed him in serious roles of cop and it seems that these roles suit his personality the best. If we divert our mind from John’s adorable looks, then we get to know that the movie is based on the nuclear test conducted in Pokhran in the year 1998 when BJP leader Atal Bihari Vajpayee was the Prime Minister. Earlier the movie was not shot in Pokhran but in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan but then to bring authenticity to the movie the crew shot the scenes in Pokhran too. The important places where the movie has been shot are, Pokhran Fort, RTDC Midway, Aada Bazaar, Gandhi Chowk Main Market and Gomat railway station.

According to the main lead of the movie John Abraham, the movie is entertaining but at the same time is based on a true story. When the actor was asked that if the movie is somewhere a tribute to the leader Atal Bihari Vajpayee, he said: “I think it is an interesting film. Atal Ji was one of the greatest Prime Ministers we had, but this is film and it has to be entertaining. Neither we are political nor are we showing anything in the film which is overtly political. We have just tried to make an entertaining film.”

When the actor was asked about how the subject came to him, he replied that”This subject had come to Prerna and Arjun (Of KriArj Entertainment). When they came to me with this subject I liked it and then we developed it in-house. We were very fortunate as the script finally shaped up really well,”. The 44-year-old actor said, “we are very careful in selecting only good script because the audience in today’s date looks for only good content.”

Asked to comment on the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, John said: “He was a visionary, he had the great vision and if we can talk about India shining, it’s only because of him. We want to give credit to our army personals and scientists who are responsible for the Super power that India is today.”. The film also features Diana Penty and Boman Irani in lead roles and will hit the theatres on 8th December 2017.
