t is no mystery that before at last hitting the screens last Friday, Parmanu was buried in debate. John Abraham, who was featuring in the film as well as delivering it, was occupied with a fight in court with maker Prernaa Arora of KriArj Entertainment over deferral in installments.
Parmanu, which was first slated to hit the venues in December 2017, was pushed a few times. John hurled a moan of help when the film was cleared for discharge recently by the Bombay High Court, which additionally finished the film’s relationship with KriArj Entertainment.
In this chaos, John’s companionship with Akshay Kumar has soured, if a report in Times Now is to be accepted. Talk has it that it was Akshay who prescribed that John hold hands with Prernaa. Evidently, Akshay had vouched for Prernaa, who bankrolled three of his movies – Rustom, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and Pad Man.
Be that as it may, when John and Prernaa were battling it out in court, Akshay removed himself. John is said to have contacted Akshay for help, yet the last did not wish to get associated with the issue.
As indicated by industry insiders, John feels double-crossed by Akshay’s absence of help, and they are never again as close as they used to be.
In the interim, John has promised never to work with Prernaa again. In a meeting with India Today, he conceded that he committed an error by expediting her board Parmanu.
“I assume liability for picking the accomplices I did. I should concede that despite the fact that I did my personal investigation and got a green flag, I wasn’t right in my judgment. There was a considerable measure of blow-back,” he said.
