Sushant Singh Rajput, who was initially finalised to play
the lead role in RAW – Romeo Akbar Walter, a spy thriller directed by Robbie
Grewal, has suddenly walked out of the project. The news came out a couple of
weeks ago and rumours are abuzz that Abhishek Bachchan is likely to to step in as the lead in the project.
Bunty Walia, the producer of the RAW has now lashed out at Sushant where he has mentioned that the actor left them at the last moment when everything was finalised. In an interview to Mumbai Mirror, Bunty said, “We had planned to kick off on October 1 and wrap up the film by November 30 in a start-to-finish schedule. We had signed Sushant in February and had his dates too. His sudden exit came as a shock to us, in particular to Robbie, given that he had given his nod right away. Directors are sentimental about their script and for Robbie it’s an emotional setback.”
“It’s a great story that needs to be told. We had signed Sushant but then he decided to shift the date and that was not acceptable. Two weeks ago, Robbie came back saying he wants to make some changes to the script that was narrated to Sushant and make the film bigger in terms of how he wants to shoot. Bad luck to the one who missed the bus,” Walia said.
