After producing movies like ‘Vicky Donor’ &‘Madras Cafe’ which are content and message driven, John is back with yet another production venture of his, which has been titled as ‘Parmanu - The Story Of Pokhran’. He shared the first look of the film on his twitter account and tweeted, “So happy to bring you the first look of my biggest test ever. #ParmanuFirstLook @johnabrahament @kriarj @ParmanuTheMovie.” (sic) The poster shows John’s face in the background with the nuclear test site of Pokhran embedded over it.

‘Parmanu - The Story of Pokhran’ is a film based on the successful underground nuclear tests that the government of India conducted at Pokhran, Rajasthan in the year 1998. It is the story of the mission that changed the place of India in the world by proclaiming it to be a strong nuclear power. Indian army, engineers, scientists and satellite experts came together to accomplish the greatest nuclear mission ever. This was the first mission that laid the foundation of a strong nuclear India and since then this mission remains one of the most memorable incident in the history of India.
The film will, however, be not shot in Pokhran but will be shot in Jaisalmer. Some of the portions will be shot at Pokhran. Other major locations of the film include Pokhran Fort, RTDC Midway, Aada Bazaar, Gandhi Chowk Main Market and Gomat railway station.
Diana Penty who was last seen in Anand L Rai’s film ‘Happy Bhaag Jayegi’ is very excited to take up this role as it is for the first time people would see her in an action drama film. Director Abhishek Sharma is also elated to work with John for the first time and he believes John’s presence in the film will ads great value and creditability to his vision.
