Mumbai: The trailer of the John Abraham-starrer film “Parmanu-The Story of Pokhran”, will be released today on the 20th anniversary of nuclear test explosions at Pokhran in Rajasthan.
A statement issued by John’s company JA Entertainment, stated that as per the order of Bombay High Court, “Parmanu-The Story of Pokhran” will release on May 25, under the joint banner of JA Entertainment, Zee Studios and Kyta Productions.
“There is no other producer associated with this project. The film will be distributed in India by Vashu Bhagnani’s Pooja Entertainment and will be distributed overseas by Zee Studios,” the statement read.
“We are extremely thankful to the Hon’ble Bombay High Court for the speedy resolution of various issues at hand thus paving the way for our film’s release. We would like to make no further comment and focus all our energies on the release of the film now,” it added.
The statement regarding the new release date and trailer launch announcement comes after the news of a fallout between John’s JA Entertainment and co-producers KriArj Entertainment.
John had decided to go solo with his forthcoming project after his production house terminated partnership with KriArj Entertainment over material breaches and bad reputation.
KriArj Entertainment had accused JA Entertainment for not fulfilling their commitment to finish the project.
The film was earlier scheduled to release in December 2017 but reportedly got delayed to avoid a clash at the box office with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Padmaavat”. The release was later postponed thrice owing to the dispute.
The film directed by Abhishek Sharma, also features Diana Penty and Boman Irani in pivotal roles.
