It’s time now we start taking the realistic issues with much more importance and seriousness in Bollywood. There is a creative need to approach these storylines which convey the message directly and entertain the masses too. On that note, there are very few actors and directors who want to work on social issues, Indian history and such realistic issues and one such actor is John Abraham. With his previous movies like Madras Cafe, Vicky Donor, Kabul Express, John is definitely trying to do something different with the movies he stars in or he produces.
Parmanu, the nuclear espionage drama will be directed by Abhishek Sharma and stars John Abraham, Diana Penty and Boman Irani in the main lead roles! The Story of Pokhran has created a lot of interest on social media when the makers released the first poster of the film. Parmanu is based on the nuclear test conducted in Pokhran (Rajasthan) in 1998. As per the detailing of the movie poster goes, makers have shown a map location of the actual nuclear testing site, in Rajasthan. To link to the movie’s soul, John’s portrait is there in silhouette in the background and looks pretty badass.
It is not the first time that John is undertaking such delicate and yet interesting subject under his wings. With Diana Penty and Boman Irani, the cast definitely looks strong and intriguing. The major portions of the film are being shot in Pokhran, and areas of Pokhran Fort, Aada Bazaar, Gandhi Chowk Main Market and the Gomat Railway Station. The shoot for the Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran already begun in early June and this film will be directed by Abhishek Sharma, who previously has directed war comedies like Tere Bin Laden and its sequel Tere Bin Laden Dead or Alive. Well, the film is slated to release on December 8 and we hope it gathers the perfect audience and gets the much-deserved attention.
