Sushant Singh Rajput was earlier announced as the leading man of Romeo Akbar Walter – a slick espionage thriller based on the functioning of India’s premiere spy agency, RAW (which also serves as an acronym for the film’s title). However, things failed to proceed thereon between the actor and the makers, after which, SSR had announced that he would be leaving the project. However, the good news is that the makers have wasted no time in finding a replacement, with Abhishek Bachchan set to step into the role vacated by Sushant.

Apparently, Director Robby Grewal of Aloo Chaat and Samay fame, and producer, Vanessa Walia, felt that Abhisehk was the perfect choice to replace Sushant, and, hence, approached him with the script, which Junior B loved and immediately gave his consent to. Word is that Abhishek’s proximity with Bunty Walia, Vanessa’s husband, also played a part in her approaching him with the script.

Romeo Akbar Walter will be Abhishek Bachchan’s first solo venture since 2015’s All is Well, which didn’t fare well critically or commercially, just as most of his recent solo films. Let’s hope that Romeo Akbar Walter will bring about a change in fortunes for the actor.
