John Abraham starrer Parmanu: The Story Of Pokhran's release date was pushed for the third time last week, as reported earlier. There were speculations doing the rounds that the decision was made owing to the buzz around Anushka Sharma's Pari, that was slated to release with Parmanu on 2 March. Now the Abraham-starrer is set to release on 6 April.

But now, in an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Abraham has spoken out and said that he wants his film to release when it's ready; other films don't matter to him.

"I refuse to compromise on anything, be it the action, the visual effects or the sound design. Also, I need time to converse with my audience, prep them up for a film set two decades ago. It is really strong in content and I don’t mind moving dates as long as my film is good because a Friday speaks. With all due respect I’d like to say that I would not move for any other film but I’ll only release my film when it’s completely ready," says Abraham, reports Mumbai Mirror.

In the beginningParmanu: The Story Of Pokhran was scheduled to release on 8 December. Later, it was pushed to 23 February in order to avoid a clash with Padmaavat that was originally slated to release on 1 December.

Parmanu's story is based on India's first nuclear test in Pokhran, Rajasthan. It stars John Abraham, Diana Penty and Boman Irani. It is co-produced by KriArj Entertainment and Abraham.
