- Parmanu to clash with Rani Mukerji's Hichki now
In doing so, John Abraham has avoided clash with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's ambitious period piece Padmavati in December but locked dates with Rani Mukerji's Hitchki. Directed by Abhishek Sharma, Parmanu - The Story of Pokhran "is a very, very important film for India," said John, who was speaking at the Swachh India Cleanathon. "I'm not saying it to plug a particular film but I'm saying it because it's a film India must see today," he added.
Parmanu - The Story of Pokhran will reportedly hit screens on February 23, which is also when Rani Mukerji is making her comeback on screen. Earlier, in an interview with mid-day, Prerna had revealed that February end was zeroed in to avoid collision with Anushka Sharma's Pari (releasing on February 9), Akshay Kumar's Padman (April 13) and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's Fanney Khan.
John Abraham co-stars with Diana Penty and Boman Irani in Parmanu - The Story of Pokhran.
