Parmanu is a new Bollywood movie which revolves around the story of India becoming a nuclear state. Recently its trailer was released in which a scene shows Pakistan’s Ex Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif under whom Pakistan became a nuclear power.
The movie is based on true event and stars John Abraham, Diana Penty & Boman Irani. The main theme of the story is hiding the nuclear programme from US government which through their intelligence kept an eye on India.
It covers the event of 1998 nuclear test in Pokhran range which was a reaction to Pakistan’s nuclear testing. But India was already a nuclear power after testing their atomic bomb in 1974 secret testing Pokhran which is called ‘Smiling Budhda’.
Many believe that the film will not be allowed to be released in Pakistan because it may contact anti-Pakistan narrative.
Nawaz Sharif in his many election campaigns have boosted about the nuclear testing that occurred under his government, though it is believed that Pakistan became a nuclear power many years before.
