New Delhi: Bollywood's tall and handsome John Abraham's act in 'Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran' has been received well. The audiences have showered their love upon the venture and that has sent the ticket counters ringing.

The Abhishek Sharma's film, which had been maintaining its steady pace at the Box Office until last week, has been facing a stiff competition from 'Veere Di Wedding' that hit the screens on June 1. As per industry experts, the film has registered a dip finally at the ticket counter. 

While on Friday, the film collected only Rs 93 lakhs, it showed a slight jump and collected Rs 1.52 crore on Saturday. As per industry experts, the lifetime business of the film is said to be around Rs 60 crore. 

Noted film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and shared the collection figures of the film. "#Parmanu gains STRONG FOOTING on third Sat... Wonderful word of mouth is converting into steady footfalls and BO numbers... The *lifetime biz* is expected to be ₹ 60 cr+... [Week 3] Fri 93 lakhs, Sat 1.52 cr. Total: ₹ 54.28 cr. India biz."

The film is said to have delivered a good show at the Box Office considering the niche genre the film belongs to. The film has now surpassed the total collection of '102 Not Out' and has become the eight highest grosser of this year. 

The story has been written by Saiwyn Quadras, Sanyuktha Chawla Sheikh and Abhishek Sharma. The film features John Abraham, Diana Penty, Boman Irani, Darshan Pandya to name a few. 'Parmanu' was earlier slated to release on December 8, 2017, but got pushed ahead.

'Parmanu' is based on the nuclear bomb test explosions conducted by the Indian Army at Pokhran in 1998. The film is produced by Zee Studio and JA Entertainment. It hit the screens on May 25, 2018.

The viewers have given it a warm reception and the numbers are expected to go up in the coming days. With the film inching closer to hit the Rs 50 crore mark, it has already been a profitable venture for the makers.
