Prernaa Arora who was spotted at the Red Carpet for the HT Stylish awards, during interaction said she has no choice but to release Pari and Parmanu on the same date.
Prernaa (KriArj Entertainment) who is a co-producing both projects, Anushka’s ‘Pari’ and John Abraham’s ‘Parmanu’ isn’t bothered by the release clash.
“Ideally I wouldn’t have liked two of my films to come together.
But what to do? The troubles faced by Padmaavat have affected all of us, and we must support a film as important as ‘Padmaavat’ even if it means discomfort for our own professional interests. So yes, two films co-produced by my banner Kriarj are coming together on the same Friday, March 2,” she said.
Prernaa says the projects are different from one another and hopefully will find their deserved audience.
“‘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.”
‘Pari’ featuring Anushka Sharma and Parambrata Chatterjee in a supernatural thriller.
While ‘Parmanu’ starring John Abraham, Diana Penty, and Boman Irani will be recreating the events in Pokhran during the nuclear tests in 1998.
