The  ‘P’ Factor  Predominates  2018…It’s  Pari Versus Parmanu On March 2



Call it a  bizarre coincidence. Or a numerological miracle. But the letter ‘P’ presides  over Bollywood’s fate in 2018. While Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat , unarguably one  of  the biggest  films  of the  year,  is flooding the  theatres, the next big one which was supposed to clash with Padmaavat , is R  Balki’s  PadMan .

 Both the film have the ‘Pad’ factor common to  their titles.

Now, again  by an uncanny coincidence  two films with identical prefixes  in  their titles are all set to come together. We are talking about  Par-manu and Pari, both  of which are ready to hit theatres  on the same  Friday, March 2.

Prernaa Arora who is a  co-producer  on  both the projects ,  is unfazed by the impending clash.

Says  the producer, “Ideally I wouldn’t have liked two of my films to come together. But what to do? The troubles faced by Padmavaat have affected all of us, and we must support a film as important as  Padmaavat even if it means a discomfort level for our own professional interests.So yes , two films co-produced by my banner Kriarj are coming together  on  the same Friday, March 2.”

    Prernaa says she is particularly  unfazed as  her two films on March 2 are completely different  from one  another. “Pari and Parmanu: The  Story Of Pokhran are such different films.It doesn’t matter who produced them as long as they get the audience they deserve.And  I believe  that both Pari and Parmanu individually have the heft to bring the audience in.”

While Pari  features Anushka Sharma in a supernatural thriller , Parmanu has John Abraham recreating the events in  Pokhran during the  nucleur tests in 1998.
