Kudos to everyone involved with the film!”

Echoing the sentiment, Sujay Kutty of Zee Studios said, “Parmanu’s success at the opening weekend goes to show that good content always resonates with audiences. We at Zee Studios had complete faith in the film and John’s ability to pull it through despite all odds. Heartiest congratulations to John, Abhishek and the entire team for making this film a success.”

Ajay Kapoor, Kyta Productions added: “ Right from the start I was absolutely sure that I wanted to be a part of this project. After all it’s not often that one gets to work with a passionate and driven partner like JA Entertainment. Looking forward to more such collaborations with John going forward.”

And last but not the least, Producer and lead actor John Abraham said, “I’m humbled by the audience response to our labour of love! Thank you to my team and our partners who stood by us in taking this story to every proud Indian.”

Parmanu is a true-life human story of the kind of intensity not seen often. It salutes the efforts of the Indian Army, scientists, bureaucrats, intelligence agencies and others 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!

Directed by Abhishek Sharma, Parmanu-The Story of Pokhran stars John Abraham, Diana Penty and Boman Irani and is produced by JA Entertainment, Zee Studios and Kyta Productions. Vashu Bhagnani’s Pooja Entertainment is its All India Distributor.
