Just about a short while ago, we got to see visuals of the star-studded success bash that the co-producers of the John Abraham-starrer Parmanu, KriArj Entertainment had thrown for celebrating their seemingly unprecedented hit rate at the Indian box office. But, it looks like all of that was nothing but a show.
Why do we think so? Well, as per our Khabri Keeda, a totally different story is going on behind the curtains, which have led to them taking the kind of decisions that has inevitably made their Parmanu star and co-producer, Abraham VERY furious!
As per KK, KriArj, who appears to be doing exceptionally well financially, has occurred some HUGE losses off late. Why so? Well, courtesy their last two outings, Pad Man and Pari. In the case of Pad Man, the film did not do the kind of business that it was expected to do, and reportedly, its leading man, Akshay Kumar, took away a major chunk in profits (As an actor AND a producer, we guess?). While Pari’s case needs no explanation, as one can see that the Anushka Sharma film did not exactly prove to be a lottery either. And, we would just like to guess here that a sizable sum must also be kind of stuck up in Sushant Singh Rajput and Sara Ali Khan’s Kedarnath as well. So, obviously, the cash is a bit tight. And, for this very reason, Parmanu: The Story Of Pokhran has been shifted indefinitely.
This, obviously has pissed off Abraham to no known limits. If you see it all from his point of view, the film had to shift its release date from 8th December, 20117 to sometime in Feb 2018 because the makers of Padmaavat (Which was then called Padmavati) had announced their release date to be the 1st of December. But when the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial was renamed and rescheduled to release on the day that it eventually did on (January 25th), Abraham and team had to cancel their release plans and had presumably begun deciding on a new date. And till date, there’s no fixed release date as such. So, Abraham’s anger is quite justified, right?
Will the Force actor ever work with KriArj ever again after this one? We can’t say for sure. Hope that they bury the hatchet in a reasonable amount of time, if there is one too, that is.
Stick to this space for the latest in Bollywood!
