John Abraham has always experimented with unconventional and uncommon genres in his career spanning over 14 years. Films like Paap (2004), Water (2007) and No Smoking (2007) dared to explore some bold and unvisited subjects.
As a producer, the actor was equally gallant and made two very powerful films- Vicky Donor (2012) and Madras Cafe (2013). If the former was undaunted enough to portray the vitality of sperm donation in modern times, the latter fearlessly depicted the story behind the assassination of India’s former Prime Minister, Rajiv Gandhi.
Now after four films in 2016- Wazir, Rocky Handsome, Dishoom and Force 2, Abraham will be seen this year in his next home production, titled Parmanu- The Story of Pokhran. As the title suggests, the film will showcase the chronicles of India’s second only nuclear test conducted in the state of Rajasthan on the 11th of May, 1998, after The Smiling Buddha in May 1974.
Co-staring Diana Penty and Boman Irani, Parmanu is directed by Abhishek Sharma and will hit the screens on the 8th of December, thus making yet another clash of 2017, as Fukrey Returns, a sequel to the 2013 hit comedy, also releases on the same day.
