‘Parmanu’ row: John Abraham files three criminal complaints against KriArj’s Prernaa Arora

The feud between John Abraham and co-producer Prernaa Arora has intensified. While the John Abraham-starrer Parmanu is already struggling with its release, a new hurdle has arisen. The dispute between the two production houses has turned massive.
Actor John Abraham has filed a complaint with his production house JA Entertainment against KriArj entertainment. In the official statement released recently, JA Entertainment stated, “John Abraham, Director of M/s JA Entertainment has filed three criminal complaints against Prernaa Arora and her company, KriArj Entertainment for cheating, breach of trust, defamation and offenses committed under the Information Technology Act.”
It furthur continues, “John Abraham, through his production house JA Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. had signed a Co-production agreement with Prernaa Arora’s company Kriarj Entertaiment Pvt. Ltd. wherein Kriarj had agreed to pay Rs 35 crores to John’s company to cover the cost of production, fees of all actors and other production related expenses and had also agreed to additionally bear the Print and Advertisement expenses (P&A) for the film Parmanu- The Story of Pokhran against which John had agreed to assign the exploitation rights and 50% IPR of the film to Prernaa’s company. ”
“However, after Prernaa’s repeated delays in making payments by stopping cheque payments and giving wrong bank transfer details (UTR numbers) at every stage and refusal to pay the last tranches of payment, which were critical for completing the post-production work of the film, John followed the due process as laid down by law. He first gave a legal notice to cure the breach and after Prernaa’s failure to cure the breaches, John terminated the agreement with Prernaa in order to save his film,”John’s JA Entertainment added.
Clearing the air over the talks about Prernaa Arora filing FIR against the actor, JA Entertainment released a statement which 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.”
