MUMBAI—History repeated itself on May 11, when the trailer of John Abraham’s co-production “Parmanu: The Story Of Pokhran” was released to great acclaim. The day marked the 20th anniversary of India becoming a nuclear power, which is what the story of “Parmanu” is all about.

For Abraham, it was also a historic day in the way the court decided in his favor in his dispute against KriArj Entertainment. The producers of the film are now Abraham’s JA Entertainment, Zee Studios and Kyta Productions.

The producers, along with all-India distributor, Pooja Entertainment, launched the trailer at the PVR ECX cinema in Mumbai. Call it a sweet twist of fate or a very pleasant coincidence – the trailer was also launched at the exact time when the first of the series of nuclear test explosions happened in Pokhran!

Talking about the film, the producers said: “‘Parmanu’ is a human story of the kind of intensity not seen often. It salutes the efforts of the Indian Army and scientists who worked so tirelessly against all odds to ensure that India finds its due place in the world nuclear map. What we hope that the audience takes home is not just the experience of a pacy and edgy plotline but also a sense of pride for our country and its twin pillars of strength – Jai Jawan Jai Vigyan!”

The edge-of-the-seat thriller that will make every Indian proud is directed by Abhishek Sharma and stars Abraham, Diana Penty and Boman Irani. Abraham took to Twitter to share the exciting trailer.
