John Abraham to produce a film based on 1998 Pokharan nuclear test

John Abraham is all set to turn producer once again for his next project. The movie will reportedly be based on the nuclear test conducted at Pokharan in 1998 and will feature him in the led role. John’s production company JA has collaborated with KriArj Entertainment for the project.

According to a tabloid report, the director Abhishek Sharma, who has earlier directed Tere Bin Laden and Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive, has spent around three years researching on this subject.

Neerja fame Saiwyn Quadros and Sanyuktha Chawla Shaikh have co-written the script for the movie.

If reports are to be believed, John has also handpicked an efficient technical crew to keep the movie as authentic as possible.The tabloid quoted John saying, “I have never been in a hurry to produce films and have been searching for subjects that are engaging… stories that resonate with the current socio-political and economic mood of the country .This film fits in perfectly with my pursuit, and I am also happy to start my association with Prernaa and Arjun.“

Director Abhishek said “I’m glad to collaborate with John. His involvement as an actor and producer adds great value and credibility to my vision.”

The movie is expected to go on floors soon and is scheduled to release in December this year.

Apart from this, John is gearing up for his maiden Marathi production, Savita Damodar Paranjpe. The film is based on a critically acclaimed play by the same name. Directed by Swapna Waghmare, the film stars Subodh Bhave, Rakesh Bapat and Trupti Toradmal.
