In a recent interview, John said that it does not really matter how much money 'Parmanu' makes. He is more than happy that it has finally hit the screens. "Whether this film does one rupee or hundred rupees, it really doesn't matter. I am just happy that it's releasing. But more important than that, it's a true story," he said.

After a series of allegations and legal notices from both the sides, John's banner was finally granted the film's rights.
