Popular Bollywood actor John Abraham, who will be seen donning army uniform in his upcoming film ‘Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran’, says he stands by his actor friend Akshay Kumar’s decision to auction the naval costume he had worn in Rustom.
For those who are unaware, Akshay and his wife Twinkle have been served legal notice and are accused of “playing with the sentiments” of the armed forces by putting up for auction a naval costume from his film Rustom.
“I am not going to be politically correct but I stand by him,” John told reporters. The director of Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran Abhishek Sharma said Col Brijmohan Sharma helped the team with the research for the film.
“Col Brijmohan Sharma was on board, he is retired now. He was in charge of the orientation test. He made sure everything from the army camp to the uniform and behaviour was taken care of,” Abhishek said.
“He did not care if someone was actor or not, he would just pull us up, saying, what is this? He was clear he wanted things to look clear,” John added.
The 45-year-old actor-producer decided to go solo with Parmanu… after his production house John Abraham Entertainment terminated partnership with Kriarj Entertainment over material breaches and bad reputation.
