Actor John Abraham today gave the reason as to why release of the film “Parmanu : The Story of Pokhran” has been postponed and told that it was as makers wanted a proper date for the film.

“There are so many films which have an entertainment purpose only and there are very few films which are important for our country. According to me, ‘Parmanu’ is one such film which is very important in modern India so it was important that we needed a proper release date for this film,” said John.

I am producing this film with AKriaj Entertainment so I feel box-office collection is also important aspect of film business and now I think we have got good release date,” he added. Earlier, “Parmanu – The Story of Pokhran” was scheduled to release on December 8 and there were reports that the producers decided to postpone it to avoid clash with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Padmavati”.
