John Abraham unveils poster of his next Parmanu - The Story of Pokhran on Twitter
John Abraham has acted in, co-produced and co-written Parmanu - The Story of Pokhran that revolves around the successful nuclear tests in Rajasthan in 1998.
It was earlier reported that after Abhinay Deo's action spy thriller Force 2 from last year, John Abraham's next release as well as his next production will be Abhishek Sharma's period drama Parmanu - The Story of Pokhran.
Now, Abraham has unveiled the poster of the film on Twitter. It shows the side profile of his face superimposed on the map of Rajasthan. Somewhere in the midst of cartographic details, one can easily spot a red dot that marks the area of Pokhran, where successful nuclear tests were conducted in 1998. The film revolves around the triumphant, yet challenging, time that put India on the world map, in terms of defense.

Parmanu - The Story of Pokhran also stars Diana Penty and Boman Irani. It will be John's first production since Nishikant Kamat's 2016 action thriller Rocky Handsome that also starred him in the lead role. John has also written the film along with Saiwyn Quadros and Sanyuktha Chawla Shaikh (writers of Neerja). The music of the film is helmed by Sachin-Jigar.
"The road to Pokhran has been paved. It's time to embark on a journey to revisit the mission that changed the place of India on the world map and turning the course of modern India's position in the world as a strong nuclear state," John had earlier said in a statement.
"For us, this is not just a film. It's a dedication from our side to all our soldiers of our country from all the forces. Also to all the scientists to dedicate their lives for the country. We are just sharing their story with the world and we are very proud of it. It's a film that every fellow Indian will surely be proud of," said the film's producers Prernaa Arora and Ajay Kappor.
Parmanu - The Story of Pokhran is slated to release on 8 December.
