Find out why Sushant Singh Rajput no longer a part of Romeo Akbar WalterAug 28, 2017 Abhishree Kulkarni
Few months ago, intriguing posters of ‘Romeo Akbar Walter’ (RAW), featuring Sushant Singh Rajput broke the internet, and his fans couldn’t content their excitement to see him play a spy.
But recently there were several reports making the rounds that this Robby Grewal directorial was being shelved. Then there were reports that the film is postponed and now we hear that the actor himself has opted out of the film. Sushant Singh Rajput recently said to a daily, “Unfortunately, I will not be part of ‘Romeo Akbar Walter’ due to changes in my prior commitments. I wanted to be part of the project because I love the story, and believe it must be told, but, that will not happen.”
SSR has a series of films lined up. Sushant just got back after shooting the first schedule of his Sci-fi space film ‘Chanda Mama Door Ke’ and is now all set to begin shooting for Abhishek Kapoor's ‘Kedarnath’ opposite Sara Ali Khan. Moreover, the ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’ actor also has ‘Drive’ with Jacqueline Fernandez being helmed by Tarun Mansukhani, post which he is also set to start with Abhishek Chaubey’s film, based on the dacoits of Chambal Valley.
A source close to the film’s development said, “The script (of RAW) is powerful, and could have been be a turning point in Sushant’s career. He requested Ajay Kapoor (Producer of RAW) to give him time to sort out the schedule conflict. Sushant wanted to shoot for his films over 15-day schedules, but, Ajay felt it would affect the continuity. He wanted two 30-day schedules to complete Romeo, but that wasn’t possible for the actor.”
Now that’s sad, isn’t it?
