“The road to Pokhran has been paved. It’s time to embark on a journey to revisit the mission that changed the place of India on the world map and turning the course of modern India’s position in the world as a strong nuclear state,” John said in a statement.

‘Parmanu – The Story of Pokhran’ also stars Diana Penty and Boman Irani.

The Abhishek Sharma directed film marks the ‘writing debut’ of John, who has assisted in writing the script of the film, along with Saiwyn Quadros and Sanyuktha Chawla Shaikh (writers of ‘Neerja’ fame).

The film, produced by Kriarj Entertainment, JA Entertainment, Kyta Productions and Zee Studios, is scheduled for theatrical release on December 8.




  • Going to be a great movie from Mr.John Abraham after “Madras Cafe”,”Rocky Hansome” & “Force 2” etc…….

  • I have always felt John had the potential to succeed immensely but somehow it could not happen . John, Shahid and Emraan started their career in 2003 and all of them are facing tough time now . Shahid has the talent, looks, dancing and physique but his choice of scripts have let him down . Emraan had a great time from 2008 to 2012 when his movies were getting good opening but since Raaz 3 everything went downhill . John had a unusual start to his career with Jism and he got appreciated for Dhoom . He got success with New York, Race 2, Housefull 2, Garam Masala, Taxi No. 9211 and Welcome Back . 2016 was a dull year for John as both Rocky Handsome and Force 2 were failures . Dishoom was above average but the credit majorly goes to Varun Dhawan . The concept of Parmanu sounds interesting and I hope this movie emerges successful . It will be great to see Diana Penty again after Cocktail and HBJ . I hope this film is on the level of Vicky Donor and Madras Cafe .

  • The best of John Abraham comes when he produces movies
    Bollywood typecasts him as macho hero and all but his performance in dramatic Madras cafe is noteworthy

    Also to those who haven’t seen No smoking , please watch it , it’s one of the best psychological thriller and John has nailed it

  • it was achievious moment for india and we entered in the parmanu field so film have to research a lot of on it
