Parmanu: John Abraham and Prernaa Arora’s legal spat continues. Read details!
The ongoing controversy related over the release of John Abraham’s ‘Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran’, the actor-producer has filed three criminal complaints against Prernaa Arora and her company, KriArj Entertainment for cheating, breach of trust, defamation and offences under the Information Technology Act. These complaints have been filed today at the Khar Police Station, Mumbai.
As per the agreement between JA Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. and Kriarj Entertaiment Pvt. Ltd., the latter 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’.

But reportedly it was the repeated delays from Prernaa’s side that led to a fallout between the parties and John ultimately terminated the agreement with Prernaa in order to save his film. Post this termination, which is a purely civil dispute, Prernaa filed a false criminal complaint against John and started making defamatory statements against him in the media. Recently, Prernaa also illegally started blocking the online publicity materials launched by John for the promotion of his film. Further, the actor also came to know that Prernaa had without his knowledge already recovered monies in excess of what she had to pay him from various third parties and yet did not pay him his dues. Owing to all these acts of Prernaa and the ones at KriArj, John has filed these separate complaints for cheating, breach of trust, defamation and offences under the Information Technology Act, at the Khar Police Station.
But, in response to these reports, KriArj Entertainment has claimed that the allegations made by JA Entertainment are false and frivolous and that it is in fact their production house who is guilty of various breaches of our understanding with them including infringement of copyright and cheating / fraud. And they (KriArj Entertainment) filed multiple criminal complaint/s and the copyright infringement suit against JA Entertainment before the Hon’ble Bombay High Court which is due to be listed for hearing on Monday.
In addition to our earlier criminal complaint a fresh criminal complaint was also filed yesterday by KriArj against JA Entertainment and Mr John Abraham for piracy / leakage of Film materials including the poster and teaser of the Film as owned by KriArj Entertainment. They have stated that no case has been registered against Prerna Arora or any members of team KriArj by the Khar Police Station.
They have sued JA Entertainment before the Bombay High Court and as the matter is under judicial consideration, we reserve our right to make further statements once matters are decided by Court.
Well, now after getting to know both sides of the story, we are waiting for the judicial verdict.
Let’s wait for more updates on it.
