 Actor-producer John Abraham has said that he had to deconstruct himself to play the character of a junior bureaucrat in his forthcoming film Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran.

Talking about his character in the film, John says,"It is based on a real incident that happened on May 11, 1998. To prepare for the role we did a lot of workshops."

"My character's name is Ashwath Raina who is a junior bureaucrat in Prime Minister's Office. To play this role, I had to deconstruct myself to look similar to real life bureaucrat, I couldn't have a chiselled body, Abhishek Sharma told me not to go for gym sessions, and look like a regular human being. We also did a lot of research on my character, " says John Abraham.

Talking about response for the trailer and songs of the film, John says, "I think it's very positive because what people are saying is that Parmanu is looking like a different and interesting film but the most exciting thing that they are saying is it looks like a commercial, engaging thriller film."

When asked John whether he was skeptical before working in this film, because he is largely accepted as an action hero, John says, "No... because I did films like Madras Cafe in the past and before that, I did a lot of films in which I took a lot of risk like Water, No Smoking and Kabul Express."

Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran has been produced by Zee Studios and Kyta Productions in association with JA Entertainment.

The film is based on the nuclear bomb test explosions conducted by the Indian Army at Pokhran in 1998. It features John Abraham, Diana Penty and Boman Irani. It is slated to be released on May 25, 2018.
