It seems like it’s a month of shifting of movies in Bollywood. Akshay Kumar shifted the release date of his much awaited film ‘PadMan’ to Feb 9 to make way for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’. And now, John Abraham starrer ‘Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran’ has also been pushed to March 2 this year.
While ‘PadMan’ will clash with Sidharth Malhotra, Manoj Bajpayee, Rakul Preet starrer-‘Aiyaary’ once again, ‘Parmanu’ will clash with ‘Pari‘ on the Holi weekend. Meanwhile, earlier it was to release on December 8, 2017, but was pushed to a later date in order to avoid being overshadowed by ‘Padmaavat’ that was to earlier scheduled on December 1. It was then reported that the film would release on February 23. Now, Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh has also tweeted about confirming the film’s release date. He wrote, “#Parmanu to release on 2 March 2018… Stars John Abraham, Diana Penty and Boman Irani.”

Now, it would be really interesting to see how the two film unfold at the box-office during the Holi weekend.
‘Parmanu’ is reportedly based on a series of nuclear tests conducted by India in Pokran, Rajasthan. The Pokhran test of 1974 made India the sixth state to declare itself as a nuclear power after the USA, Soviet Union, Britain, France and China. The film is helmed by Abhishek Sharma.
