John Abraham is back in Mumbai after wrapping up the first schedule of Parmanu. The Story Of Pokhran, directed by Abhishek Sharma, also features Boman Irani and Diana Penty in pivotal roles.
The film, which revolves around India’s successful attempt to join the Nuclear Club, will soon start its second schedule in Mumbai.
The Jaisalmer schedule of the film was hit with a sandstorm earlier.
A sandstorm hit Parmanu set in Jaisalmer, and sent everyone scurrying for cover. Consequently, a few lights which were supposed to be utilised in the shoot were damaged.
The film’s producers felt that they would have to cancel at least a day’s shoot, but thankfully conditions improved and subsequently John bravely shot all the scenes which were scheduled for him. The impactful image showed John’s face etched on to the map of Pokhran, a remote location in the Thar Desert region which served as the test site for India’s first underground nuclear weapon detonation.
