This is an edge-of-the-seat thriller that will make every Indian proud- a true India Shining story!

Parmanu- The Story of Pokhran, is an ode to the Indian army and scientists, who although ordinary people, truly accomplished extraordinary feats in the face of adversity. The film salutes, celebrates and truly embraces the slogan- Jai Jawan Jai Vigyan.  Directed by Abhishek Sharma, the film stars John Abraham, Diana Penty and Boman Irani. While the premise of the film is based on true events, the characters are fictitious.

Over the last few months the makers of the film have been sharing some intriguing posters taking the excitement for the film a notch higher with each of them. Continuing this series, both John and Diana took to twitter TODAY to share their looks and reveal their character names. While John’s screen name in the film will be Ashwat Raina, Diana will be called Ambalika Bandopadhyay.

…and while their pictures show both of them in military fatigues, do they play Army officials in the film OR is there more here than meets the eye?? This pacy, edge-of-the-seat thriller promises to be one interesting watch!

“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 take 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!” says John Abraham.

Producer Prernaa Arora of KriArj Entertainment said, “We at KriArj are extremely proud to be associated with this venture. For us, Parmanu is partly a dream and partly a need to remind the people of India of the unsung heroes behind our nuclear prowess- our army and our scientists. After Rustom, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, this film is yet another step in our journey to make good, engaging cinema that is not just entertaining but also evokes pride in our country. ”

Parmanu- The Story of Pokhran, is produced by KriArj Entertainment, Zee Studios, Kyta Productions and John’s JA Entertainment ride in our country.”
