John Abraham’s latest film, Parmanu: The Story Of Pokhran, has garnered ₹ 50 crores at the domestic box-office, surprising one and all with its exceptional performance. The movie, which revolves around the Pokhran II nuclear bomb test explosions in 1998, after which India became a nuclear state, released on 25th June, 2018.
Parmanu opened to a positive response from critics and an amazing word of mouth helped it record excellent occupancy across all territories. Within two weeks of its theatrical release, the movie has minted ₹ 50 crores at the cash counter and counting.
The latest collection was shared by well-known trade analyst and Indian film critic, Taran Adarsh, on Twitter. “Content scores and BO numbers do the talking… #Parmanu hits the 50 cr mark… [Week 2] Fri 2.05 cr, Sat 3.56 cr, Sun 4.53 cr, Mon 1.79 cr, Tue 1.64 cr, Wed 1.57 cr. Total: 50.55 cr. India biz,” he wrote.
The film has sustained extremely well despite facing stiff competition from Alia Bhatt’s Raazi and the Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Swara Bhasker starrer, Veere Di Wedding. If it continues to maintain the same pace in coming days as well, it can easily score a lifetime collection of approximately ₹ 75 crores.
Starring John Abraham, Diana Penty and Boman Irani in important roles, Parmanu: The Story Of Pokhran is directed by Abhishek Sharma. It is a joint venture among JA Entertainment, Zee Studios and KYTA Production.
