John Abraham starring Parmanu gets the new release date, After All Getting Into Controversy
The release date of John Abraham starrer Parmanu has been pushed to 4th May after issues arose between KriRaj Entertainment and John Abraham Entertainment, leading to a termination of their contract by the actor.
In a statement released, JA entertainment announced, “In the best interest of the film, we have terminated our contract with KriArj Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. and will soon announce the release schedule.”
It continued, citing the failure of payment as the chief issue, “KriArj has committed material breaches which left us with no choice but to terminate in the interest of the film.
We would like to state that this extreme step has been taken by us after days of trying to resolve the issues at hand in the best interest of the release of the film. We have fulfilled our commitment at every stage of this project and intimated KriArj in writing from time to time.
We have been waiting and asking for payments at every stage.”
However, KriRaj has rubbished the allegations, calling them “false and frivolous.”
The director, Abhishek Sharma is, on the other hand, is pleased that the change in date means that the film’s release will coincide with the anniversary month of the Pokhran tests.
He said, “Much in line with India’s journey to becoming a nuclear power, our film’s journey to its release has also had its own ups and downs! However, it is perhaps a befitting tribute to the true heroes of our nuclear programme – our army and our scientists, that ‘Parmanu’ is releasing in the same month as we are celebrating 20 years of Operation Shakti – India’s nuclear test explosions in Pokhran in May 1998.
We are extremely proud of the film and what it stands for and can’t wait to take it to our audience on May 4, 2018.”
