A spokesperson for JA Entertainment, the production company owned by actor John Abraham, put out a statement last night (4 April) clarifying the status of a criminal complaint registered against John and his company by KriArj Entertainment.

The statement read, "This is with reference to the media reports stating that an FIR (First Information Report) has been registered at the Khar police station against Mr John Abraham and his production house, JA Entertainment. We would like to categorically state that this statement is factually incorrect and misleading.

Also, there has been no case registered by ZEE [Studios], as reported by some sections of the media. No such FIR has been registered and this fact can be verified from the said Police Station as well. We request everyone in the media fraternity to kindly refrain from putting out unverified information. We thank you for your continued support to us and our film, Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran."

Prernaa Arora, co-founder of KriArj Entertainment, said that a criminal complaint had been filed by them at Khar police station against John and his company.

As reported by yesterday (4 April), an FIR will be lodged by the police only after an investigation is conducted.  

In an exclusive interview yesterday, Ramchandra Jadhav, senior police inspector at Khar police station, had said, “We have received a criminal complaint from one KriArj Entertainment against John Abraham and his company. We will be conducting an inquiry and only after that FIR can be filed."

The Khar police station acknowledged that the complaint had been received, but made it clear that the FIR will be lodged only after an inquiry is done.

News reports arrived Sunday (1 April), stating that JA Entertainment has cancelled their deal with KriArj Entertainment on Parmanu on accounts of breach of contract.

Directed by Abhishek Sharma, Parmanu focuses on the Indian scientists and the army personnel who took part in a series of nuclear bomb test in Rajasthan. The film is due to be released on 4 May 2018.
