It's Pari versus Parmanu on March 2
Prernaa Arora, who is a co-producer on both the projects, is unfazed by the impending clash.
Call it a bizarre coincidence, or a numerological miracle. But the letter 'P' presides over Bollywood in 2018. After Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat and R Balki's Pad Man there will be Parmanu and Pari, both of which are ready to hit theatres on March 2.
Prernaa Arora who is a co-producer on both the projects, is unfazed by the impending clash. "Ideally I wouldn't have liked two of my films to come together. But what to do? The troubles faced by Padmavaat have affected all of us, and we must support a film as important as Padmaavat even if it means a discomfort level for our own professional interests. So yes, two films co-produced by my banner Kriarj are coming together on the same Friday, March 2," she said.
Prernaa says she is particularly not perturbed as her two films on are completely different from one another. "Pari and Parmanu: The Story Of Pokhran are such different films. It doesn't matter who produced them as long as they get the audience they deserve. And I believe that both Pari and Parmanu individually have the heft to bring the audience in."
While Pari features Anushka Sharma in a supernatural thriller, Parmanu has John Abraham recreating the events in Pokhran during the nucleur tests in 1998.
