The master storyteller applauds John Abraham’s riveting, patriotic true story.

The first verdict on Parmanu-The Story of Pokhran is out! And it comes from none less than the master storyteller himself, Karan Johar.

The filmmaker watched the film recently and was completely bowled over by this edge of the seat thriller based on a true story. He took to twitter to share his admiration for the film calling it riveting and arousing. He said, “Saw #parmanu !!! A riveting and arousing film....this true story kept me glued to my seat towards the end! Watch out for the nail biting climax of this immensely patriotic true story!!!! Congratulations @TheJohnAbraham and team #Parmanu #abhisheksharma"


Speaking about Karan's reaction John Abraham said, "Karan is someone I love and respect both as an individual and as a filmmaker. He has been a constant source of encouragement to me. There are some films that are more than just a script, more than just a story; for me Parmanu is that kind of a film. We went all out for it and hearing what Karan is saying reinstates our faith in our work and our vision for cinema."

Earlier, talking about the film John had said," Parmanu is a true-life human story of the kind of intensity not seen often. It salutes the efforts of the Indian Army and scientists 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 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!""

Parmanu- The Story of Pokhran is an ode to the Indian army and scientists, who although ordinary people, accomplished truly extraordinary feats in the face of adversity. It salutes, celebrates and truly embraces the slogan- Jai Jawan Jai Vigyan. While the premise of the film is based on true events, the characters are fictitious.

Directed by Abhishek Sharma, the film 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.

Parmanu- The Story of Pokhran will release Worldwide on 25th May, 2018.
