Talking about the film, the producers reiterated: “Parmanu is a human story of the kind of intensity not seen often. What makes this edge-of-the-seat thriller special is the fact that we are recreating a moment in Indian history that we are so proud of- our Nuclear tests at Pokhran done against all odds. It salutes the efforts of the Indian Army and scientists who worked so closely 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!”
