John Abraham Caught On The Wrong Foot, Defaults On Parmanu: KriArj Lashes Out

In a tale of twists and turns, KriArj is now giving it back to John Abraham for announcing that his company is breaking ties with them on the upcoming film, Parmanu

So, John Abraham tried to pull a fast one on KriArj Entertainment this morning, when he announced in the trade papers that he is breaking off ties with the company on Parmanu.

This has enraged KriArj, and according to them, John is under contractual obligation and he cannot do what he has done.

It is out in the open since nearly a month that John was announcing different dates of the film's release, which KriArj did not endorse--- thereby making it clear that all was not well between them. It seems that it is John who is trying to throw the spanner in the film's release, despite the fact that it is ready since December 2017.

KriArj, which is known to have not spoken against any actor, is now finally speaking against John. Clearly, they have been pushed against the wall.

Talking to SpotboyE.com, a KriArj official says, "In response to the trade notice issued by JA Entertainment claiming termination of their agreement with us for the film Parmanu, please note that the said termination is illegal and invalid.

Our rights in the Film as a joint producer/presenter and owner of all rights are fully secured, we have always fulfilled all our commitments till date and have clear intent to continue doing so. JA Ent has also always been aware that Zee Studios are KriArj's partners in the film from very early stages as co-producers and also the acquirers of the overseas theatrical, digital, satellite and music rights of the film.

JA Ent has till date not fulfilled it's commitment of completing and intimating us of the completion the film and is fraudulently trying to delay the release of the film thereby causing huge monetary losses and damage to our reputation. We had all our plans of promoting the film and a wide release in place and were to kick start the campaign shortly for which also there have been substantial expenses already done. JA Ent has repeatedly put a spoke in the wheel and derailed the marketing campaign which is hurting the prospects of the film and is the cause of losses being continuously caused to us.

After making substantial payments to them, JA Ent has kept making unreasonable demands for money from us which are completely outside the scope of their initial understanding with us. This has made it abundantly clear that they are trying to defraud us by now attempting to wriggle out of a legally binding contract with us which is not only unlawful but also unethical.

We hope better sense prevails on JA Ent as we have been only looking towards the interest of the film and the best possible release.

It goes without saying that any one dealing with the film or any of its rights through JA Ent will be doing so at their own risk and peril and will also have to face legal consequences. We have already instructed our attorneys who will be moving the necessary authorities soon for seeking justice against the breaches committed by JA Ent and its promoter Mr John Abraham."
