The impending clash at the boxoffice between Anushka Sharma’s shiver-giver Pari and John Abraham’s Parmanu: The Story Of Pokhran , the true-life story of the nuclear explosions in Pokhran that took place in 1998, has now been averted.
Both the films were scheduled to open simultaneously on March 2.But now John Abraham , succumbing to boxoffice wisdom, has decided to shift Parmanu to April 6 leaving the coast clear for Anushka Sharma’s first post-marriage release on March 2.
A source close to development says John had little choice. “Anushka Sharma’s scare-fest inPari is already grabbing a whole lot of attention.The latest promo has sent chills up the nations’s spine. John’s promotion for Parmanu has not even started as yet. Rather than rush into release , better sense prevailed.After a spate of flops Parmanu is crucial to John’s career. The film has to work as he has signed only one film (to be directed by MilapJhaveri) after Parmanu. John wants to take no risks. It has to work.”
So now Pari has March 2 all for itself.Mrs Virat Kohli must be laughing all the way to the bank.
